This course offers students the critical research skills needed for in-depth understanding and evidence-based decision-making within the context of technology and computing. Through independent study, participants will investigate a given industry sector, leading to the planning of a computer-based project and strategic recommendations for technological applications in business.

Upon completion, students will be adept in decision-making, problem-solving, and project management, with a solid foundation in computing concepts applicable in professional contexts and the ability to present complex information clearly.

The curriculum focuses on Big Data, exploring its challenges, storage solutions, cybersecurity risks, legal and ethical considerations, and future applications in areas like IoT/AI and cloud computing. It also examines the role of Big Data in enhancing operational efficiency across diverse fields.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Conduct small-scale research, information gathering and data collection to generate knowledge on an identified subject.
  2. Explore the features and business requirements of organisations in an identified sector.
  3. Produce project plans based on research of the chosen theme for an identified organisation.
  4. Present your project recommendations and justifications of decisions made, based on research of the identified theme and sector.

This course is designed to be as accessible as possible. There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.

Registration process:

  • Based on course settings, students might be requested to fill in an application and provide us with correct information about themselves before being able to proceed with the course (the application is online).
  • We will contact you by email if we need more details after submitting your application.
