B.Sc. in Problem Solving and Software Development (PSSD)

Category: Third LevelTeknovis @ 08:37

I noticed that DCU has recently launched a new computing degree (B.Sc.) titled Problem Solving and Software Development (PSSD). The novel thing about it is that entry is achieved by showing an aptitude for programming rather than by the traditional exams results method. For more information see DCU School of Computing launches new degree to produce top programmers.

I think that it is a really great idea, and I hope that it is a success! Of course, I assume that the course will be suitably tailored for entrants that have a natural aptitude for computing!

    Yeah you need a portfolio to apply. Annoying thing though, is it undermines the value of the DCU Computer Applications course. I mean why employ a CA graduate instead of a PSSD graduate? :(

    I think that there is demand for both types of graduates.
