Higher Diploma: HND in Computing (Level 4 & 5 diploma)

What is BTEC?

BTEC is one of the world’s most successful and best-loved applied learning brands, engaging students in practical, interpersonal and thinking skills for more than thirty years.

BTECs are work-related qualifications for students taking their first steps into employment. BTECs provide progression into the workplace either directly or via study at university and are also designed to meet employer’s needs. Therefore, Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications are widely recongised by industry and higher education as the principal vocational qualification at Level 4 and 5.

When developing the Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications in Computing, Pearson collaborated with a wide range of students, employers, higher education providers, colleges and subject experts to ensure that the new qualifications meet their needs and expectations. Pearson also worked closely with the relevant professional bodies, to ensure alignment with reconginsed professional standards.

There is now a greater emphasis on employer engagement and work readiness. The Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications in Computing are designed to reflect this increasing need for high quality professional and technical education pahtyways at Level 4 and 5, thereby providing students with a clear line of sight to employment and to progression to B.Sc.(Hons) in Computing.

Professional Practice

Students will be able to demonstrate leadership skills through the dynamics of team working, and through reflective practice be able to evaluate the contributions made as an individual and also of others. As a result they will develop skills such as communication literacy, critical thinking, analysis, reasoning and interpretation, which are crucial for gaining employment and develop academic competence.

Maths for Computing

Students will be able to evaluate LAN design principles and their application in the network design process, implement a network using LAN design principles based on a predefined set of requirements, produce an appropriate WAN solution to a set of organisation requirements and solve a range of network-related problems using appropriate troubleshooting techniques and methods.

Python Programming

This unit introduces the core concepts of programming with an introduction to algorithms and the characteristics of programming paradigms to be able to design and implement algorithms in Python.

Networking

Students will gain knowledge and skills to successfully install, operate and troubleshoot a small network; and the operation of IP data networks, router, switching technologies, IP routing technologies, IP services and basic troubleshooting. Supporting a range of units in the Higher National suite, this unit underpins the principles of networks for all and enables students to work towards their studies in vendor units, if applicable.
