Computing for Business & Management Project (G6058)

45 credits, Level 6

Autumn and spring teaching

This course will give you the opportunity to complete an extensive piece of research, design or implementation work under the supervision of a member of faculty. You will be able to chose from a range of project topics or offer a project of your own. All topics will require the application of skills and knowledge gained through previous courses of study and will involve you in the design and implementation of a technological solution to an Information Technology or E-Commerce related problem (using programming, modelling, simulation tools as appropriate). Some project topics will be available in collaboration with commerce and industry and will enable you to experience the methods and approaches of non-academic institutions.
