IS Design, Development & Management - Core

In this module, students will be introduced to the principles and practice of object oriented design, fault monitoring, decision-making and project management. The unit will be taught as four independent strands: systems design covering object-oriented design methodologies, fault monitoring - an introduction to the problem of software quality management, decision-making systems and project management.

Database systems - Core

This course provides you with an introduction to the core concepts in data and information management. It is centred around the core skills of identifying organizational information requirements, modelling them using conceptual data modelling techniques, converting the conceptual data models into relational data models and verifying its structural characteristics with normalization techniques, and implementing and utilizing a relational database using an industrial-strength database management system.

Dissertation Preparation and Research Methods - Core

This unit helps prepare you for your dissertation. You will recognise and critically evaluate approaches to management research and the assumptions upon which they are based. This will equip you to make justified choices as to appropriate quantitative/qualitative research methods for data collection and subsequent analysis. You will then be able to conduct research, and evaluate primary and secondary data sources in a systematic and critically reflective manner. You will also evaluate potential limitations to research investigation and applications and develop a coherent and appropriate research proposal, recognising the ethical implications of research investigations and their impact upon findings.
