Business Modelling (Work based)
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 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.
Professional and Research Practice (Work based)
This module is only open to degree apprentices in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. It covers the following topics: discipline topic tasters; finding, retrieving and evaluating information; ethics, science & technology; scientific and technical writing; skills for workplace context.
Work-Based Project (Work based)
This module is only available to degree apprentices studying the BSc Digital and Technology Solutions programme. It provides a tailored opportunity for degree apprentices to investigate and analyse the relationships between their study and work contexts through a supervised individual project.
