Emerging digital technologies are those such as Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Internet of Things, Blockchain, FinTech, Robotics and, Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality, which will have a significant business and societal impact over the next five to ten years. Given the rate of change, these disruptive forces are impacting industries and markets in multiple ways. One specific impact we are seeing is the growing digital skills gap.

This online Certificate in Digital Emerging Technologies will give the student a deep understanding of these new technologies and how they can be utilised to create opportunities in their industry and develop their career prospects.

Why study this programme?

To remain competitive and take advantage of market opportunities and be able to show the difference between their offerings, professionals, managers and decision makers can gain a deeper knowledge of what newly appearing technologies are and how they can be applied in their business domains.

The course is taught over one semester and is delivered completely online through both synchronous and asynchronous directed activities using state-of-the-art technologies and teaching techniques to support the virtual classroom. The module assessment strategy places greater emphasis on continuous assessment (e.g. essay, presentations, group project) rather than on written exam.

This programme is an online programme and as such, students are expected to successfully participate in lectures, laboratories and projects using a laptop computer with a substantial hardware configuration. Students must also ensure they have sufficient broadband speed & reliable connectivity. Exact configuration requirements will be sent upon application.
