The Certificate in Computing provides students with an opportunity to develop their computing literacy to equip them with the fundamentals of programming and software development, which can be applied to other areas of study or work. This program is not intended to prepare students for careers in software development, but to give professionals (and future professionals) in many fields the skills to apply computing to their activities, increasing their productivity.
