Completing BSc (Honours) Computing and IT

With ten years remaining in my contract and the government’s intentions unclear, I’ve decided to get my finger out and focus on completing the BSc (Honours) Computing and IT (B62). It can use 120 points from four completed modules – M150T175MST121 and M255 as well as 30 points from MS221, which I have already started.

At level two I’m taking two courses on top of MS221 which I intend to study concurrently, so as to be half way through by the end of next year:

  • T215 – Communication and information technologies (60)
  • MT264 – Designing applications with Visual Basic (30)

Leaving 120 points at level 3:

  • M359 – Relational databases: theory and practice (30)
  • M364 – Fundamentals of interaction design (30)
  • M366 – Natural and artificial intelligence (30)
  • TM470 – The computing and IT project (30)
