Subject

Computer science

BSc Computing Technologies (top up) is a challenging programme which is aimed at creating highly-employable individuals, especially those that aspire to becoming team leaders, specialist or managerial roles within the computing and digital media industries.

It is designed to teach the skills and knowledge required for extending employment opportunities within the vocational field. The modules are designed to build upon Level 5 study and give graduates a skill set which will enable them to reinvigorate their careers, or to allow access to higher level jobs in the industry. Primarily the programme will focus on the deeper investigation of key technical skills and knowledge combined with the importance of developing and utilising leadership and team working skills.

Modules

All modules are mandatory
Final Research Project (FRP) (40 credits).
Applied Security, Adaptive Development, Leadership in Action and The Enterprise Architect (all 20 credits).

Assessment methods

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
