    Learning outcomes
    • Demonstrate a systematic and critical understanding of the theories, principles and practices of computing
    • Critically review the role of a “professional computing practitioner” with particular regard to an understanding of legal and ethical issues
    • Creatively apply contemporary theories, processes and tools in the development and evaluation of solutions to problems and product design
    • Actively participate in, reflect upon, and take responsibility for, personal learning and development, within a framework of lifelong learning and continued professional development; Present issues and solutions in appropriate form to communicate effectively with peers and clients from specialist and non-specialist backgrounds
    • Work with minimum supervision, both individually and as a part of a team, demonstrating the interpersonal, organisation and problem-solving skills supported by related attitudes necessary to undertake employment.
