Course description

At St Mary's we aim to deliver a course that is suitable to equip our students with a high level of competency in modern business applications and good knowledge of the way ICT systems are used in our society.

At this level students will discover how modern businesses use, collect and process the data that is routinely collected. They will examine the technology that supports these processes with particular emphasis on communication technology. Students will be encouraged to look at the present capabilities of ICT and the potential for it's further development.
