This programme provides students with the opportunity to study a one-year BSc Top-Up degree, that covers the core areas of computing and information technology of networking and security, advanced database development and advanced web development. The curriculum is designed to provide a structured and cohesive focus on the core areas, along with the advanced aspects of how the different areas integrate to create systems using current technologies. Additional options allow students to tailor the BSc (Hons) Top-Up course to their own interests and chosen career path. The course enhances vocationally relevant professional skills through specific modules, practical activities and the opportunity to undertake applied study. Technical and academic skills are embedded in the modules allowing students to emerge from the programme with an updated skill set that they can use to market themselves with employers or move into further master’s level study. Within the course there is opportunity for students to attain a level of professional practice. Strong links to the business and the computing sector facilitate industry-related briefs and real scenarios that provide an opportunity for students to acquire professional work ethics, time planning skills and working within a team.
Modules studied: • Artificial Intelligence • Cyber Security • Emerging Technologies • Internet of Things • Individual Research Project
The assessment strategy for students undertaking the Level 6 (Top-Up) programme online also takes into account the different learning needs of online students. The following principles also inform our approach: • To include a range of assessment types, with these being viewed holistically, within and across a programme structure • To ensure that at the very beginning of a module students are made clearly aware of the specific, assessed, activities or online participation that will be required of you and of the assessment criteria involved • To ensure that sufficient time is allowed within modules where there are multiple assessment types for students to grasp the different approaches to assessment. Assessments for all modules have been designed to be inclusive for all students.
