  • Research & Professional Practice
    This module will provide you with the necessary methodological, analytical and development skills needed to design, implement, and analyse a piece of independent research or development piece of work in the form of a consultancy tender, reflection, etc. at an undergraduate level in the field of Informatics. The module will focus on general issues you are likely to adopt for your research project such as: the Research and Development life cycle; collecting and analysing primary and secondary sources of knowledge; elementary consultancy skills, ethics and managing your time effectively and presenting your findings in a coherent manner. The module will focus on specific issues related to your chosen pathway by providing specific pathway tutorial groups where you will explore, in greater depth, those issues most likely to be relevant for your chosen pathway.

    Current networking technologies can provide reliable and high-performance data transfer over a range of wired and wireless communication channels.  Most companies now contain and connect to a number of different networks.  This module examines the theory and practice of networking with emphasis on the issues which relate to the design and provision of the most appropriate network technologies for modern business organisations.
  • IS Project Management
    As you come towards the end of your honours degree in a Computing/IT subject area, this module takes a broad and reflective view of the profession in a holistic and critical manner.  It considers matters of professional and ethical relevance, and particularly considers issues that are of contemporary significance to the subject area.
Plus one optional module from below:
  • Social & Collaborative Computing
    This unit looks at all aspects of social networking that are currently used for both business and pleasure. It also examines collaborative software and how it can be used to best effect. The unit provides a thorough understanding of user activity in these areas, how users can be supported and managed and how the various systems can be used to their best effect.
  • Web Services, Security & Management
    This module covers the practical issues of both hosting and managing web sites, including security and server configuration. It also covers the various approaches used to implement the web services that enable cloud computing, and the competing techniques for implementing the semantic web.
Project module (June - September)
  • Honours Informatics Project
    The project contributes significantly towards the final degree. In the final year you spend about 2 days a week on your project. Future employers will probably ask you about your project, and use performance in the project as one of the most reliable guides to your potential. As a final year 40 module for the Honours degree, the project allows you to demonstrate, through a practical application, the extent of theoretical knowledge gained in the first two years of study, practical skills acquired in the subsequent year of industrial or commercial training and further theoretical and practical skills acquired during the final year of study.
