develop a range

develop a range of practical skills relevant to the task of designing, developing and evaluating programmed solutions to problems; develop a range of transferable skills, including clear communication and logical presentation of ideas and arguments, and practice them within the context of their studies; apply their knowledge and skills to a range of problems, and hence begin to develop an appreciation for the social, professional and legal issues involved and the contexts within which solutions arise. For the MEng awards, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Develop Computer Science practices and technical understanding at a breadth and depth beyond BSc Honours level; study at a level beyond undergraduate provision, and thus enhancing prospects of professional and managerial employment within the context of national and international industries; develop the potential to be a leader in the computing profession and with industry and business; study Masters-level computing related subjects underpinned by current research practices in a number of fields. For the Computer Science and Information Technology awards, students will encounter a broad range of activities drawn from a variety of problem domains. In overview: For the Computer Science award, at a high level, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Develop specific in depth technical abilities and skills that are relevant to the design, development and management of computer based systems. For the Computer Studies award, at a high level, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Develop a broad understanding of and practical abilities in a range of computing disciplines. For the Information Technology award, at a high level, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Develop specific information focused and application derived abilities and skills that are relevant to the design, development and management of information technology based systems. Additionally for either the Computer Science with a Year Abroad or the Information Technology with a Year Abroad awards, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Develop understanding of the appropriate subject domain topics within the context of a non United Kingdom cultural environment; gain experience of developing appropriate solutions drawn from a variety of problem domains in the context of non United Kingdom cultural environment. For the other awards, students will acquire a deeper understanding and more specific skills relevant to particular domains, and the generic aims can be further refined as follows: For the Computer Science (Software Engineering) specialist award, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Develop the ability to choose suitable tools and techniques for software development depending on the characteristics of the problem; develop an appreciation of good practice in the management of software development and of that process as an engineering discipline; develop a responsible and professional attitude to the quality and timeliness of their products; develop an appreciation of the role of theory in practical applications. For the Computer Science (Networks) specialist award, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Develop a knowledge of the function of both hardware and software aspects of computer systems; gain an understanding of the principles of operation of a wide variety of network technologies; V1.6 / Main Programme Specification / January 2013 / AS © University of Hertfordshire 2012 4

develop an appreciation of how network services are developed and a knowledge of their uses; gain an understanding of the special problems of the development of concurrent systems, including design, implementation, validation and testing. For the Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) specialist award, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Gain an understanding of the theoretical basis of Artificial Intelligence; acquire the software engineering skills necessary for the design, implementation and testing of Artificial Intelligence systems; acquire the requisite mathematical and modelling skills to engineer Artificial Intelligence systems; gain experience of a range of applications of Artificial Intelligence and an understanding of their suitability to a range of problem domains. For the Information Technology (Entertainment Systems) specialist award, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Gain an understanding of the theoretical and contextual basis underlying the development of interactive entertainment systems; acquire knowledge of the properties of the typical media content employed in entertainment and multimedia systems; gain an understanding of how the tools and techniques of media design may be applied to the design and development of entertainment systems; develop an appreciation of how hardware and other constraints affect the quality of entertainment systems. For the Information Technology (Business Systems) specialist award, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Gain an understanding of the effects that business information systems have on organisations as a whole and on the individuals who are part of them; develop an appreciation of a variety of business information systems environments and contexts of use, such as commercially oriented computing; gain a sound understanding of the ethics of business information systems (human, social, legal aspects); gain experience of the design, development and management of business information systems. For the Information Technology (Web-based Systems) specialist award, it aims to provide students with opportunities to: Gain an understanding of the principles of operation of a wide variety of web-based technologies and their infrastructure; acquire knowledge of the properties of the typical content employed in web-based systems; gain experience of the design, development and management of web-based systems; develop an appreciation of a variety of web-based systems environments and contexts of use, such as e-commerce, information provision and edutainment. C. Intended Learning Outcomes The programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, skills and other attributes in the following areas. The programme outcomes are referenced to the QAA benchmark statements for Computing and the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (2008), and relate to the typical student. Additionally, the SEEC Credit Level Descriptors for Further and Higher Education 2010 have been used as a guiding framework for curriculum design. The programme outcomes have been selected to form a coherent educational experience for the students to provide both sufficient breadth for the students to support a wide range of future careers and sufficient exposure to theoretical and fundamental issues to support life-long learning in the V1.6 / Main Programme Specification / January 2013 / AS © University of Hertfordshire 2012 5
