Why do a course in computer science?
We offer a nine-week program in C programming for engineers and scientists. The course provides an overview of the language that is used for a range of system and application software and underpins many other programming languages. Study procedural programming and topics including C Compiler and pre-processor, functions and programme structures, pointers and arrays, structures, input/output and the UNIX interface.
You may also study any subject or unit offered by the college. Enrolling in a single subject is a good way to learn a new discipline, update your professional knowledge, enhance your qualifications or experience university before enrolling in a full degree. There will be a fee and you must gain the approval of the subject coordinator and meet any prerequisites.

Your study options
If you want credit for the subject, you will need to go to lectures and tutorials and do assessment tasks. If you are just doing the subject out of interest, you do not have to be assessed. This is a good option if you do not intend to apply for a degree program.
