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 ofimmediate practical problems; it combines the ethos of the scholar with that of theprofessional; it underpins the development of both small scale and large scale systems thatsupport organisational goals; it helps individuals in their everyday lives; it is ubiquitous and/tmp/tmpprgv5jfhSKILLS-FOR-IT-GRADUATES-from-UCAS-v2doc-6598.docNO LONGER AVAILABLEONLINE
