In today’s interconnected world, communication through social media is not an option but a requirement. The rapid growth of internet services, such as Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, Google, Instagram, etc. has forced every profession to be “social media savvy”.
It has been observed that brand loyalty is dependent on one’s ability to leverage the power of social media to build connections with the rest of the world.
In this light, the HND in Computer Science program offered at ANC, in collaboration with SQA, is designed in such a way that it covers a wide range of skills including designing and maintaining a website and using social media in a meaningful way to promote a brand in addition to general skills and theoretical knowledge that meet the needs of employers.
