Business Information Systems (Work based)
This module is only open to degree apprentices in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. It covers the following topics: introduction to information systems; types of information system; uses of information systems; information systems in e-commerce and e-business; information system design and development; information systems within and between organisations; case studies of business information systems; the human factor in information systems; legal and ethical issues in information systems.
Business Modelling (Work based/Undergraduate)
Introduces students to the development of quantitative models and associated processes for problem solving and decision making in IT management. The module introduces basic statistical concepts and provides practical experience in developing spreadsheet implementations of quantitative methods. A case study approach is taken to the application of statistical analysis and modelling of a range of engineering activities including concept selection, design optimisation, robust design, manufacturing process improvement, and problem-solving. Examples of modelling approaches may include the use of Microsoft Excel Solver, Scenario Analysis, Data Mining and Discrete Event Simulation.
ICT Group Project (Undergraduate)
A group project to specify and plan an IT solution with cost benefit analysis and risks. Students will be placed into groups of 4-5 and given an IT project to work on. It is intended that the IT projects will be provided by industrial partners. Guru lectures (part of the e-skills provision for the BSc (Eng) ITMB IE degree) will be assessed within this module in the form of critical evaluation essay's Assessment 100% coursework Group Project Report - 40% Presentation - 30% Guru Lectures Essay - 30%
ICT Project (Work based)
This module is only open to degree apprentices in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. Students will identify a significant IT problem to solve from their workplace context, in conjunction with the module lecturer and their employer. To meet the problem requirements and design a satisfactory solution within the time constraints, the students will have to apply the principles learnt in their previous taught modules.
Project Risk Management (Work based)
This module is only open to degree apprentices in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. It will introduce students to: Formal introduction to Project Management; Project Structure, Leadership and Team Roles, Communications; Project Scope, Feasibility and Work Breakdown Structure (WBS); Stakeholders and Quality Management; Project Risk, Decision Making, Estimating and the Business Case; A brief review of risk management and the risk management process; explain the legal basis of risk management; critically evaluate how pure risks may be identified, assessed and evaluated; discuss the role of human behaviour in managing risks; Review of the basic key techniques and tools to plan and control projects (e.g. work breakdown, Gantt charts, critical path analysis and managing risk); Introduction to other resources which can assist with project planning (e.g. Microsoft Project and PRINCE); Examples of different kinds of processes in different contexts.
