The University of Hertfordshire
About the University of Hertfordshire
Based at Hatfield, the University of Hertfordshire has a growing engagement with the IT sector via its Business School and School of Computer Science who both deliver a full range of programmes and training solutions. The Business School offers a broad base of bespoke teaching, consultancy and mentoring programmes underpinned by its BSc Information Technology Management for Business (ITMB) under the auspices of e-skills uk and two further masters degrees, MSc Strategic Business and Information Systems and MSc Project Management, as well as Information Systems within its Joint Honours programme.
The School of Computer Science offers a BSc Computer Science and BSc Information Technology with variants and a number of masters level programmes. It offers online BSc Computer Science, BSc Information Technology and MSc Computer Science. The online programmes are primarily at levels 6 and 7, but development is in progress for level 4 and subsequently level 5. The modules are credit bearing and so, as well as being taken in their own right, can be used towards a degree.
In addition, it offers courses leading to industry standard certification which are primarily run for own students, but can be delivered externally as well, mostly as intensive ‘summer schools’. These include:
Oracle - leading to certification as an Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) and Oracle Certified Professional (OCP);
Oracle Database 11g - Introduction for Experienced SQL Users;
Oracle Database 11g - Administration Workshop 1; and Oracle Database 11g - Administration Workshop 2.
Cisco - leading to Certification as a Cisco Certified Network Associate
