The programme's core aim is for our graduates to be business problem solvers and solution providers in several key areas of computing; therefore, the assessment strategy focuses on expertise in these key aspects while also judging capability in a range of personal and professional skills
The assessment approach is designed to ensure the student’s breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding will be assessed summatively through academic reports, critical reflective practise, technical designs, hardware and software solutions to problems, video diaries, presentations, exams and student led seminars.
The programme aims to assess reflective practise throughout the modules and generally a model of reflection will be used to provide structure and guidance to the reflective writing and assessment process. Assessment will show that students are able to demonstrate their ability to criticise, analyse and ultimately synthesise information and draw conclusions
