I am writing to regarding the launch of the BSc (Hons.) Software Development for Business at Glasgow Caledonian University. The programme was launched in September 2014 and has only recently been made available on UCAS to allow interested students to apply for entry in 2014. For further information visit the UCAS web site.
The BSc (Hons.) Software Development for Business programme complements our already popular BSc (Hons.) Information Technology for Business programme. Both programmes have been developed in co-operation with leading UK employers and e-skills, the Sector Skills Council for Business and Information Technology and we are pleased to announce that Glasgow Caledonian University is the first university in Scotland to offer both e-skills endorsed programmes. To find out more about e-skills visit their web page.
Our programmes are also accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS). The BSc (Hons.) Software Development for Business programme equips students with the knowledge and skills for a career as a Computing Professional. Typical career paths of successful graduates include software developer, software engineer, programmer, mobile application developer, cloud analyst, web developer and database administrator. In addition students will benefit from employer engagement in the form of networking events, employer supported projects, placements, CV clinics and “guru lectures” from senior executives and inspirational role models from some of the UK’s most prestigious companies and successful start-ups.
Further information on the programme can be found on the University web site and on UCAS; just enter Software Development for Business into the search field or go directly to theprogramme page .
We have a strong reputation in the area of computing with Glasgow Caledonian University being rated the best modern university in Scotland for Computer Science in the 2014 Guardian University League Tables and 2nd in Scotland (11th in the UK) for employability according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
I would be grateful if you would pass this information on to any of your students interested in studying computing and considering GCU.
