Educational Aims The Informatics Programme: Both courses aim to provide the necessary analytical and computing skills for the development and management of Technology and Computer Systems in respect of the development of abilities in, for example, system design and analysis as well as the concomitant problemsolving skills required to work at the leading edge of the appropriate technologies. The ordinary programme offers students with many calls on their time, or who may not have been studying for some years, the opportunity to study for a degree without the full demands of an honours programme. Additionally, the honours programme requires the completion of a substantial self-managed project which will develop skills, both professional and managerial, within the spectrum of the modern computer and technology industry. The honours programme aims to: Provide a challenging, stimulating and self-rewarding study environment. Develop a range of graduate skill by means of opportunities provided in the study units. Accommodate student needs in relation to maximising their career potential by enabling them to develop knowledge, critical understanding and skills in their chosen subject areas. 13.

8 15 Course Structure, Progression and Award Requirements These level 6 top-up BSc and BSc (Hons) courses have been developed to meet the professional and academic needs of graduates of the Advanced Diploma in Computing and equivalent Informatics courses. Thus the Honours programme is typically an 18 month programme of a total of 120 credits, and the ordinary degree is typically a 9 month programme of 60 credits. The programme consists of 10, 20 and 30 credit point units, where 10 credits represent 100 hours of study time and usually includes 5 hours of synchronous online instruction with a facilitator. Scheduled start dates for both courses will be January/February, May/June, September/ October The learning environment is via a sophisticated web-based product. Access to the course environment is through a web browser which is easily accessible via modem or network. This environment provides an integrated communication mechanism among students and facilitators regardless of their geographical location including chat-rooms, bulletin boards and private . Because units are available across the web, students may choose to sequence the units in several different ways. However, there are clearly advantages in doing some units together; however, students will always be given advice as to the most educationally desirable sequence of units. The final project on the Honours programme is a vehicle for students to solve a practical problem by developing a computer-based artefact or to do a research investigation. The engineering project reports on the design and development of this artefact and the study project reports on primary research and literature reviewed. Students on this programme are generally already in Employment and may choose to do research or develop artefacts that are relevant to their employment. 16 Employability Statement It is expected that when students graduate from these courses they will find employment in organisations where technology plays a major part and where elements such as quality assurance, sustainability and computing are major elements which require careful management. Within this environment Honours graduates from this programme are expected to become capable practitioners and be able to display creativity in managing technical systems that are related to the operation of commercial and other organisations. They will be expected to show the ability to exercise initiative and personal responsibility; to be capable of decision-making in complex and unpredictable contexts; and to have the learning ability needed to undertake appropriate further training of a professional or equivalent nature. Holders of an Ordinary degree from this programme are expected to progress to careers at senior technician/junior professional level. Within this environment graduates should be able to display understanding in analysing and dealing with production systems, showing qualities and transferable skills relevant to employment in the IT sector requiring the exercise of personal responsibility and team leadership. Careers education material is reachable over the web from the University Careers service; an E- guidance service offers individual consultations. The main focus of the degree programme is on enhancing employability. It is anticipated that for most of the students the main reason for engaging with this programme in particular is so that study can be pursued in parallel with existing work within IT and technical industries. The main focus of the degree programme is on enhancing employability. The School of Computing has regular contact with industry, which informs the ongoing development of the curriculum and course profile. 17 Support for Student Learning The Course is managed by a Course Leader Collaborative programmes are managed on a day-to-day basis by the University Contact who may or may not be the Course Leader Induction programme introduces the student to the University and their course Management and Computing Informatics Global Campus, Singapore Page 6
