Within the Computing and Digital Technology Department of B&FC you will find lecturers who are genuinely enthusiastic about the subjects they teach. After all, if we are not enthusiastic about what we teach, how can we expect you to be the same about learning the subject?
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. - Pele
