The Corner Office

The Corner Office is a dynamic and flexible coworking space designed for you to run your growing or established business, with all the perks of being in a larger office. The inspiration for The Corner Office was born out of two main factors. <p></p> The first is our personal experience of working from a home office and shared offices, and the challenges that come with it, as well as Jill’s experience as a training consultant and the variety of work environments she encountered over the years: <br> - Home offices can be a challenge on the rest of the family who have to agree to “office” rules. <br> - The feeling of never leaving the office <br> - An isolated office can be lonely! <br> - Being in an office environment can be refreshing and if you meet like-minded people in similar circumstances, the networking and inspiration opportunities grow. <br> - Meeting venues can be expensive and a coffee shop sometimes isn't appropriate for confidential issues <br> - Travel time to work is often an issue when your head office is several traffic jams or even a flight away <p></p> The second factor was to realise we were by no means unique and there was indeed quite demand for a space like The Corner Office. <br> - We can provide a variety of work solutions, from a private space, to a desk in an open-plan office, whether you want your own desk or just a desk now and then. <br> - We can offer a meeting room for confidential meetings and more casual options for those smaller powwows. <br> - In every scenario the environment is friendly, professional and has the amenities you would want in an office. This without the outlay in the cost of setting one up for yourself. <p></p> Why “The Corner Office” <br> <mark>We believe that you all deserve a Corner Office, all of us entrepreneurial spirits are champions and leaders in our own way! <p></p> From our research with the local market we believe firmly that work needs to be close to your home – around the corner. We spend too much of our lives travelling and in this age of great internet connectivity, there is so much we can do with a good connection, great coffee and the odd bit of company from like -minded people who are working in the same way as we are.</mark>

Incus Data - school image
Incus Data

At Incus Data, we believe that good programming is both an art and a skill. We believe that training programmers and software developers in new skills - such as Java, C, C++ and web development - requires a different approach to training users. <p></p> User training involves training new users how to do a specific task. Training programmers, on the other hand, means <mark>training people to understand the methodologies, tools and thinking processes involved for a new language or technology, and how to apply these to real-world problems.</mark> <p></p> We also understand that training adults is very different to training children. For example, did you know that a lecturer has to repeat something more for adults than a teacher would have to for children?. <p></p> We teach you more than just a new programming language or technology. Our courses also teach you good coding practice and better ways to make your code cleaner and easier to maintain. <p></p> In the words of respected coding guru Rick Osborne: "Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live." <p></p> Why? <mark>Because coding matters.</mark>

The department has since established links with keen industry players. We are an academy for CISCO, HUAWEI, ORACLE, and IBM South Africa. In addition, we make use of software products widely used in the job market, the likes of ORACLE and Microsoft Suite. This has enabled us to <mark>incorporate industry specific modules into our academic offering necessitating a student to have certification from the respective companies upon completion at SMU, hence giving the student competitive edge over peers from other Universities in the country as well as abroad when seeking employment.</mark> We strive to continue with such relationships because of the employment benefits it brings to our graduates in building our community and nation. <p></p> In response to the call by the national government to produce more ICT graduates, the department is embarking on introducing a standalone programme in Computer Science & Information Technology at the undergraduate level to feed into the post graduate programmes. That work has already begun with the new PQM application expected to serve before all University structures and further submission to DHET early this year 2021. This certainly will see further tremendous growth in the department as well as student enrollment.
