  • Web content
  • Rich web client
  • Server-side scripting
  • System, network and database infrastructures

Programme Modules

Semester I (January – June)

  • Introduction to Web Programming
  • Integrated Mobile Applications Development
  • System & Network Technologies

  • Cross-platform Mobile Applications Development
  • Database Technologies & DBMS

Work Placement

Upon completion of the taught modules, students undertake a work placement of circa 10–12 weeks duration where possible. 

The 10–12 weeks duration for work placement is a suggested minimum, not a maximum.

If a work placement is not possible, students can undertrake a web-technologies related project.
