Computing & IT
NESCol's computing laboratories and facilities are fantastic, allowing students to work with a range of hardware and put theory into practice in specialist computer labs.
Many Computing students will be given the opportunity to gain valuable, hands–on experience by working at the College's IT helpdesk. This involves helping other students who have any technical difficulties with personal devices — an excellent way to gain experience and develop abilities when it comes to computing support and dealing with customers/clients.
