You will be expected to study and complete 5 modules; 3 in semester one and 2 in semester 2. These comprise: Network Management, Engineering Mobile Applications, Data Science, Human Computer Interaction and a final Project. This project is a core unit offered in the second semester and is a double unit worth 40 CATS. This unit is designed to provide the student with the opportunity to conduct a self-managed project of significant scale and complexity. The project should reflect theory and practice drawn from the named award being undertaken by the student and be related to real world applications.
The course uses a variety of assessment methods (report, professional discussion, presentation, portfolio and timed assessment) to ensure you graduate with well-rounded business skills and can apply theory in practice. Each module sets out the required assessment which usually consists of one to two assessment methods. The course is designed to be as flexible as possible to fit around your
work and personal commitments. Taught interactive sessions will mostly take place on Tuesday (6pm- 9pm) and Wednesday evenings
from 5pm-9pm. There are some flexibilities within the timetable to choose an option that is of most interest, or perhaps better fit your
other commitments. Term 2 and 3 are focused on work placement, or setting up your own business and independent research.
