About the Course

This Foundation Degree includes the study of such topics as client-side and server-side scripting, and database design and implementation using SQL, all of which contribute to the current extraordinary achievements of the Internet and provide solid foundations for the next major iteration of the Web that is being built upon Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies as well as projects like Progressive Web Apps (PWAs).

We will introduce students to a selection of current technologies like network detection of and protection against unsolicited and extraneous network traffic to the organisation, networks simulators like CISCO's Packet Tracer, and penetration testing tools like METASPOIL to probe IT systems vulnerabilities.
