    First Year

    You will be able to spend about a third of your study time learning about the fundamentals of marketing, and the principles of management. This provides a solid foundation on which to build the more advanced management modules. In addition you will be able to study the core Computing modules which provide a good grounding in the technologies that underpin computing. We cover Java programming and program development environments, along with database systems and internet technologies. There is a core module on discrete mathematics for applications. We also teach you a variety of study skills, organisation and management techniques ensuring that you can complete your degree effectively and are best placed to enter the real world of work.

    Second Year

    In management there are modules about human resources, marketing and communications, buyer behaviour and the management of markets. You will be able to choose topics and focus on the aspects of management that interest you the most. The second year group project is a key feature of the second year, and we provide an extensive introduction that covers further organisational skills, and we teach you about computing law and professional practise. You will also take a module on software engineering and design. There are also modules on networks and operating systems, and multimedia and computer graphics.

    Third Year

    Typical options in management cover global marketing, business ethics and international business with corporate strategy. In addition to a special 3rd year individual project, which combines elements of computing and management, we offer you options including distributed systems, covering issues such as multi-threading and transactional interactions; compression methods for multimedia, where you find out how to store thousands of songs on a small music player; web technologies, where you learn how to write advanced web service programs; and a module on techniques for ensuring software quality. Each year other state-of-the-art topics will also be available.
