Computing with NSBM

Soon the whole world will be connected. The reach of developments in IT and related technologies would expand beyond traditional cultural and geographical borders, eliminating the gap of knowledge levels laid over the years. This had triggered an overwhelming need for new generation of computer programmers and specialists, who are capable of developing systems usable across the globe, in multi-cultural and multinational environments, having the ability to evolve with the trends of technologies and business. Degree programmes at NSBM aims to cater to the this demand by making graduates having knowledge in both technological and business aspects of the computing with higher emphasize on needs of the new digital age.

Software Engineering is one of the most highly employable expertise areas within the computing subject. The aim of this programe is to provide the graduates with an understanding of the current challenges and trends in the area of software engineering and development and equip them with the required set of skills demanded by the industry and needs and IT trends.

A full three year honours degree, with specialist software engineering modules integrated throughout the programme to provide a holistic and comprehensive learning experience in Software Engineering.

Designed and supported by a strong and experienced academic team.

Excellent employment opportunities, through a wide variety of organisations from large corporate organisations to specialist software development companiesrs. With current reliance on software-based solutions, the need for software engineering specialists has become essential.

B Sc (Honours) in Computer Networks

This programme aims to produce graduates with a strong background in Computing and Information Technology and with a specialisation in Computer Networking and Distributed Systems. The programme covers a wide range of topics, and given the flexible nature of careers in computing, graduates can, and indeed often do, pursue a wide variety of career paths – particularly where they can combine technical knowledge gained on this programme with prior knowledge of some specific application domain.

This programme effectively fuses together a number of core disciplines: networking, general computing and security, software, and ethics to provide a comprehensive and well-rounded learning experience. The first two stages of the course provide the learner with all the essential background knowledge, understanding and skills in computing. In addition, the learner will also benefit from specialist networks modules in both these stages, followed by a more focused final stage towards networking-oriented modules developing and building upon these skills.
