In year 1 I did really well, achieving a Mid-First overall. I came first in the Computer Science cluster and was awarded the Dan Ryland prize for my academic achievement by the Department of Computing. The following modules were completed and links to relevant coursework.
Foundations of Computing Technology and Programming
This module had four strands including programming and technical aspects that introduced students to the fundamentals of writing computer programs, as well as numeracy and website development.
This module helped to develop the professional skills required in industry. We learned how to confidently deal with numerical aspects of your course and practice web publishing skills by creating and formatting basic web documentation which, was obviously very easy given my experience!
Computer Science Programming
I learned about programming languages relevant to software with industrial scale, reliability and performance characteristics using the C++ language.
Computer Technology and Mathematics
This module focused on understanding how a computer works, looking at issues arising from the hardware architecture and also extend my mathematical knowledge and ability.
Systems Analysis and Design (SAD)
This module was an introduction to the fundamental principles of SAD, giving a working knowledge of key systems development methodologies, techniques and tools.
Professional Development for Industry
This module focused on enhancing employability potential by increasing awareness of the technological, social and economic factors driving the IT industry.
