 Graduate School of Management - Diploma in Computing - Level 4


Computer science or computing science (abbreviated CS or Comp Sci) is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. A computer scientist specializes in the theory of computation and the design of computational systems.Its subfields can be divided into practical techniques for its implementation and application in computer systems and purely theoretical areas. Some, such as computational complexity theory, which studies fundamental properties of computational problems, are highly abstract, while others, such as computer graphics, emphasize real-world applications. Still others focus on the challenges in implementing computations. For example, programming language theory studies approaches to description of computations, while the study of computer programming itself investigates various aspects of the use of programming languages and complex systems, and human-computer interaction focuses on the challenges in making computers and computations useful, usable, and universally accessible to humans.


The course is made up of 10 level 4 modules (120 credits)


Each module consists of 40 guided learning hours of material with an additional 30-50 hours worth of optional materials which comprise of recommended exercises, recommended readings and internet resources.Within the modules are self testing exercises. You must take care in answering these. Although they are not marked nor do they count towards your final assessment, the marking is tested against your scoring on the final assessment to check for consistency of score.


The modules are written against prescribed learning outcomes defined by the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) administered by Ofqual, the Government appointed regulator. In addition the learning outcomes are articulated against the ATHE UK (www.atheuk.com) curriculum who is a recognised awarding body monitored and assessed by QAA, the Quality Assurance Agency, the Government appointed quality assurance body.



Level 4 Module Listing


Computer Systems and Software

This module will explore the functions of computing systems and the basics of design, configuration and routine maintenance.


Computer Programming
This module examines the basis of OOS and how programming fits into the broader aspects of usage of applications.


Relational Database Systems
This module will enable understanding of database design and development and enable students to develop and design a database and explore solutions to meet client brief . Learners will learn how to design a database.


Software Engineering
This module is concerned with the analysis of IT and computing needs to develop requirement specifications and develop and test prototypes.


Systems Analysis and Design
This module provides an understanding of IS concepts and how they relate to organisation needs in respect of business processes and transformation of information.
