Second Year Roundup

Well, my second year is done and dusted. I’ve had a thoroughly great time, and learnt a lot too! :). I thought it might be nice to have a post to say thank you to everyone, and to have a list of all the results I achieved, for future record. So below you can see a table of all my results, and my average for the year:

Module ACW 1 ACW 2 Exam 1 Exam 2 Overall
Simulation and 3D Graphics 90% 90%
Advanced Programming 100% 75% 90.85% 88.24%
Networking and Web Technologies 80% 100% 85% 88%
2D Graphics and User Interface Design 86% 86% 86%
System Analysis, Design and Process 87.5% 72% 80%
Electronics and Interfacing 71.25% 84% 77.62%

This means my average for the year is:

84.97%

Which is a high first class, and a grade I’m really happy with :). Thanks to everyone at the University of Hull for making this year so great, particularly those in the Department of Computer Science.

Year 2 Modules – Decision Made

I posted last week explaining how I was trying to decide which modules to take in the second year of my Masters of Engineering Degree in Computer Science.

As you can see from the above screenshot of the MyAdmin interface — a university website used to choose modules amongst other uni related tasks — I have finally figured out what I want to do, with one caveat.

I mentioned in my last blog post I was torn between two modules, Electronics & Interfacing and Artificial Intelligence. I have formally enrolled myself on the Electronics & Interfacing module, however I intend to go to both sets of lectures in the first few weeks of the semester and then make a choice based on the actual content of the module, rather than the description and title provided to us by the department. I think this a mature approach to making a hard decision, and one Rob recommended himself when I asked for his opinion on which was the better option for me.

The other modules I will be taking in year 2 are:

  • Systems Analysis, Design and Process
  • Advanced Programming
  • 2D Computer Graphics and User Interface Design
  • Simulation and 3D Graphics
  • Networking and Web Technologies

I’m particularly looking forward to learning C++, which is the industry standard programming language as well as making my own threaded server in Networking 🙂

I can’t wait!
