Computational Thinking (EXCE1157)
This module covers the basic mathematical concepts that underpin much of computing practice. It is designed to be a practitioner’s guide, emphasising the practical application and implications of the theory.
Databases and Information Systems (EXCE1159)
This module addresses the theoretical and practical design and use of information systems in a variety of contexts from small businesses to large scale operations. The use of database software will include an understanding of the structure and creation of relational database applications, as well as their applications, hosting, management and security.
Software Development (EXCE1161)
In this module students develop the ability to solve problems algorithmically. Procedural, object oriented, and event-driven paradigms are studied and applied to create a program to carry out an operation. They will implement and debug applications. The process of developing an application using the software lifecycle will be explored – comparing and contrasting the various approaches.
Computer Systems & Control (EXCE1158)
Introduces the hardware components of modern systems, linked to logic, low level programming and simple control mechanisms. This module will identify and detail the essential components of a processor-based system, applying them to simple physical control systems using appropriate languages and a range of software operating systems.
Business Intelligence & Big Data (EXCE1160)
This module provides students with the skills to contribute to the design and development of data systems. It focuses on modern engineering methods, tools and systems used for statistical computing when conducting predictive and strict analytics. Also, students will also learn how organisations use Power BI as a tool for undertaking descriptive analytics through Business Intelligence.
Fundamentals of Computer Networking (EXCE1162)
Networking is fundamental to modern computer systems. Students will learn about standards, protocols and topologies on wired and wireless networks and the hardware and software that implement them. Students will have the opportunity to apply the skills learned to network management tasks commonly occurring in the workplace. Teaching will be a combination of classroom theory sessions together with practical activities carried out in the Faculty networking lab.
