Computing courses are based at our Markeaton Street site, where we have dedicated computing laboratories, including open-plan software development studios, a networking laboratory, a virtual reality and cross reality lab. 

All our computing labs at our Markeaton Street site contain dual-screen, multiprocessor computers equipped with a variety of industry-standard commercial and open-source software. 
You can hone your skills in games programming studios supported by Microsoft and Nintendo, a dedicated CISCO networks laboratory, a computer forensic lab and general computing labs. As a Microsoft IT Academy, we offer official Microsoft training and exams at a discounted rate, plus access to online resources and professional tools.
