3 EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF THE PROGRAMME Note: These are aspirational, and are not the same as. At the end of a course students should be able to: Research - Select and fully utilise appropriate research and experimental methods - Access existing information and knowledge and sources to generate new information and knowledge - Analyse findings and synthesise conclusions from research for future work in a rational and innovative way. Contextualise - Locate their own activity within the multiple contexts of information technology, communication, humans and organisations, business applications and innovation - Exploit interactions between these aspects. Reflect - Evaluate their own work and that of others, critically and independently with the aim of improving and developing their own practice using comparisons with professional practice and a high level of academic activity. Practice - Synthesise computing solutions to typical commercial / industrial problems using conclusions from research studies - Draw upon the body of theoretical and technical knowledge available and be able to use this to professional advantage. Apply transferable skills - Communicate effectively in academic, technical and professional environments. Show their ability to use various forms of communication (including oral presentations and technical documentation) as appropriate during and on completion of the work process, to elicit information, to explain, debate and persuade, adapting to audience and circumstances at the level of professional practice and academic discourse - Plan and implement action at a professional level, identifying targets, organising resources, and managing them self and others effectively - Carry out independent learning at a postgraduate level as a basis for academic study, lifelong learning, and for personal professional development - Work harmoniously and effectively with others, accepting responsibility in a variety of roles, including the ability to form and lead groups. 3

4 What is distinctive about this programme? There are numerous distinctive aspects to the programme. In particular, the Faculty s focus on practical scholarship is reinforced by providing opportunities to use industry standard software and hardware. For example students specialising in Awards where Networking features strongly, have access to Cisco networking equipment & utilise support material provided by Cisco Systems Inc. Professionally, many of the programme s awards are accredited by the British Computer Society for CITP Further Learning. All of the taught Awards (i.e. not Advanced Computing, Professional Computing nor MRes Computing Science) have a minimum 6 month, maximum 12 month placement opportunity included in their structure. The Faculty has a long history of encouraging and supporting students who wish to take up an industrial placement as part of their Award, and has a dedicated staff team to enable this. Professional Computing combines Faculty work and study facilitated by Learning Tree International. 4
