The DGT3 course focuses on:
Advanced website design (using HTML, CSS, PHP)
Advanced database design (using SQL)
Advanced programming (using Java)
Advanced Computer Science topics (e.g. computer graphics, algorithm tractability)

This course builds upon the skills and knowledge learnt in the DGT2 course. It is aimed at those looking to gain experience in programming and website development. A large component of the course is self-directed and requires students to be highly motivated.
