RESEARCH METHODS
This module provides a grounding in research methods as they apply to
research in computing and information systems. It outlines essential
considerations when conducting experimental research, survey research,
field research, etc., and allows an opportunity to analyse research papers
and develop familiarity with research areas and approaches. It also
provides students with an opportunity to plan and develop an individual
research strategy suitable for a Master's dissertation.

Topics studied include a variety of research methods and processes,
general components of surveys and field studies, issues in problem
analysis, topical research sources, and the requirements of a dissertation.

WEB DEVELOPMENT TECHNOLOGIES
This module examines modern computing architectures suitable for the
development of large-scale, web based applications. It discusses the
main concepts and technologies used in the development of such
applications. Practical skills are developed in the engineering of web
software platforms.

Topics studied include hardware and software components, architectures
for web appoications(client-server, peer to peer, 3-tier, n-tier, etc), data
formats, XML based data languages, client and server side developments
and optimisation techniques.

MANAGEMENT OF E-BUSINESS
This module provides students with an in-depth knowledge of e-business
capabilities, enabling technologies and their management. Students will
develop an ability to appraise critical business issues associated with ebusiness
and related technologies, and will be able to assess concepts
relevant to e-business life-cycle management.

Topics studied include-business models and technologies, applications,
implementation frameworks and methodologies and system analysis
techniques for e-solutions. Also, service performance management and
data mining techniques are covered in the module.

HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION
This module offers an understanding of human computer interaction
(HCI) as a multi-disciplinary subject, with a special focus on interactivity
and usability in computer systems and software development. It provides
students with an informed appreciation of the importance of HCI to a
successful understanding of the problem domain and the consequent
effective use of resources. It also covers the latest development in HCI
studies and research, and its application to new technologies such as
multimedia, electronic authoring and publishing, and virtual reality.

Topics studied include HCI definition and context, current application,
measurement techniques and theories, cognitive and educational
psychology, communications theory, graphic arts, technical writing, industry
standards and guidelines, prototyping tools and relevant research issues.
