The Foundation Diploma (Computing Stream) aims to provide Secondary 5 graduates a basic vocational training for employment and at the same time, help reinforce their academic foundations for further studies, particularly in the IT discipline. It has attained the accreditation status from the HKCAAVQ as a QF level 2 course.
In response to rapidly changing IT technologies, this new edition has been produced to keep students updated on the technical content. It has been compiled from books written for latest software applications suck as Adobe Flash CS4 and Dreamweaver CS4, Microsoft Access 2007 and Visual Basic. NET 2008.
The growing number of Internet activities and computer usage also bring with it, a rise in social concerns about ethical issues governing the use of internet. Computer ethics has now become an essential part of IT knowledge. To cater for such a need, a new chapter has been included into this edition in order to address this topic. We hope that our graduates are not only technically competent, but they will also be committed to practicing good ethics.
