Prerequisites

You should have taken the DT1 course, and gained the majority of the credits available. If you did not take the DT1 course, or achieved fewer than 14 credits in that course, you will need HOD approval.


Digital Technologies is the study of how computers work; how they can be programmed; and how they can be used to manage, process and present information.


The DGT2 course focuses on:
Further website design (using HTML, CSS, PHP and Javascript)
Database design (using SQL)
Further programming (using Python - Pygame)
Computer Science topics (e.g. binary, ASCII, UniCode, data compression, data encryption)

This course builds upon the skills and knowledge learnt in the DGT1 course. The course requires students to be self-motivated and to work independently.
