Computing

computer lab

Dumfries and Galloway College is proud of its use of technology in everything we do as an organisation, from our own business operations to the knowledge and skills we pass on to our students. Staff in our Computing programme area are regularly updating the programmes we offer to ensure they include the latest developments in this fast-growing and fascinating industry.

Computing and computer technology are part of just about everything that touches our lives e.g the TV we watch, the music we listen to, the transport we use, way we work and especially the way we communicate. Computing offers a variety of disciplines that provide rewarding and challenging careers as well as satisfying personal interests. This industry has jobs for both those who like to work with people, and for those who prefer to 'hide away' and write programs. Computing quite rightly is very often associated with innovation, and developments in computing and information technology tend to drive it. This promotes national competitiveness.

The possibilities for future developments are likely to be even greater than they have been in the past.
