Digital Technologies 3

DGT3
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Simpson

Prerequisites

You must have taken the DT2 course, and gained the majority of the credits available. If you 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 DGT3 course focuses on:
Advanced website design (using HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript)
Advanced database design (using SQL)
Advanced programming (using Java, C++, C#)

Project Management
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.
