University of Derby Information Technology
There are two key themes in the BSc IT programme at Derby:
- UX (User Experience) and User Centred Design
- Big Data Analytics
These themes are further supported and enhanced with a range of closely related computing and business topics.These themes reflect the expanding reliance on Information Technology (IT) products and services of modern Western society and the developing world. Mass-market consumer products, such as mobile devices, are exploiting the combination and increasingly almost seamless integration of small, portable, easy to use devices with access to the World Wide Web and wireless communication technology to allow easy access to vast quantities of information almost anywhere. The vast amounts of data generated by the use of these products can be exploited to help make sound business decisions, as well as for public benefit.
