SKILLS FOR IT GRADUATES from UCASA graduate in computing typically will have the ability to: demonstrate knowledge and understanding of essential facts, concepts, principles and theories relating to computing and computer applicationsuse such understanding in modelling and designing computer-based systems for the purposes of comprehension, communication, prediction and the understanding of trade-offsdemonstrate computational thinking and its relevance to everyday life, including redundancy and the diversity to achieve the development of safe and critical systemsuse criteria and specifications appropriate to specific problems, and plan solutionsensure a computer system meets the standards defined for current use and future developmentrecognise simplicity and elegance as useful concepts, but also bad and dangerous practicesdeploy appropriate theory, practices and tools to analyse, specify, design, implement and evaluate computer-based systems, including trade-offs and quality attributes of a chosen solutionpresent succinctly to a range of audiences (orally, electronically or in writing) rationaland reasoned arguments that address a given information handling problem or opportunity, including assessments of the impact of new technologiesrecognise the professional, moral and ethical issues involved in exploiting computer technology and be guided by appropriate professional, ethical and legal practicesexhibit practical and transferable skills, including relevant approaches to group activitywork as a development team member, recognising the different roles within a team and different ways of organising teamsoperate computing equipment, taking account of its logical and physical properties and any risk and safety aspectsdeploy information retrieval skills (including using browsers, search engines and catalogues)use available tools to construct and document computer applicationsexercise numeracy skills and use effectively general IT facilitiestake a disciplined approach to all aspects of computer design, sustaining own knowledge to accommodate rapid technology changesmanage own learning and personal development, including using time management and organisational skills, with a focus on lifelong learning and professional development.Computing is a discipline that is constantly evolving, covering a spectrum that ranges from theory to practice embracing hardware, software, the study of computers and computation per se, through to applications-oriented studies. It is concerned with the understanding, design and exploitation of computation and computer technology. It blends theories (including those derived from other disciplines such as mathematics, engineering, psychology, graphical design or well founded experimental insight) with the solution of immediate practical problems; it combines the ethos of the scholar with that of the professional; it underpins the development of both small scale and large scale systems that support organisational goals; it helps individuals in their everyday lives; it is ubiquitous and /tmp/tmpprgv5jfhSKILLS-FOR-IT-GRADUATES-from-UCAS-v2doc-6598.docNO LONGER AVAILABLE ONLINE
