Digital Technologies - Level 3

DGT3
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Simpson

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)
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.
