The School of Applied Computing aims to produce graduates that help shape the future of electrical and electronic engineering. The course content is contemporary and shaped for employability through close links with local and national employers. Students are assessed through a combination of laboratory based practicals, assignments, presentations, projects and examinations. Module assessment is often by assignment, or assignment and examination. The final mark for some modules may include one or more pieces of course work set and completed during the module. Project work is assessed by written report and presentation. Students are encouraged to use our links with Software Alliance Wales and Go Wales to work on commercial schemes for their Major Project module. Go Wales provides the opportunity of paid work placements with local businesses.
