Scarborough TEC has added two exciting new courses to their growing number of Higher Education programmes, offered in collaboration with Yorkshire & Humber Institute of Technology (IoT), in incredible, brand-new facilities at the Filey Road campus in Scarborough.

FdSc Cyber Security and FdSc Digital Design, both subject-to-validation, offer the chance to join the digital revolution and study for a Higher Education qualification on your doorstep from September 2021, going higher has never been closer to home!

The FdSc Cyber Security will prepare you for a career in cyber security and similar fields of digital forensics, cryptography and computer-related employment. This course will focus on establishing a sound base of knowledge and skills in programming, networking, hardware, databases, and security.

If you’re interested in digital design-based solutions, the FdSc Digital Design can be inventive, elegant, and rewarding.  Taking a problem from a client or business then designing and producing a solution is not only professionally satisfying but in high demand in all areas of business, locally, nationally and across the world. This two-year programme will prepare you for working in a digital design studio, with the technical, professional, and interpersonal skills required to be successful in this field.

Ann Hardy, Principal of Scarborough TEC, said: “Our new IoT spaces are incredibly creative and offer students to chance study and learn important skills that will future-proof their career options using the latest IT equipment and technology which includes 3D printing and robotics.

“As we continue to grow our Higher Education provision, it’s exciting to be able to add the FdSC Cyber Security and FdSc Digital Design, both of which are employment growth areas, to our portfolio. We are very much looking forward to officially launching our IoT later this year and for continuing to develop our Higher Technical Qualifications at Scarborough TEC.”

The new Yorkshire & Humber Institute of Technology facilities at the College’s Filey Road campus include a gaming studio, digital arts lab, cyber IT lab, engineering classroom and a digital learning hub.
