Year 2 Semester 1 Module Results

Today I received my module results for my two “short and thin” semester 1 modules via the brand new MyAdmin page on the Univeristy of Hull Website, which now features a responsive design meaning I could check my results on my phone with ease.

I received a grade of 86% for ‘2D Computer Graphics and User Interface Design’ and a grade of 80% for ‘Systems Analysis, Design and Process’. Both grades are high firsts and I’m very pleased with both of them, especially as these are the first results we have got back that actually count toward our final degree qualification. A great start, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Thats all for now,

Systems Analysis, Design and Process Exam and Result

This Image from Rob Miles’ Module Introduction Lecture Slide is what kept me sane throughout revision 😉

On Tuesday I had an Exam for the Systems Analysis, Design and Process Module. You may remember I posted about the other half of the assessment, the Mr. Bump Management System Group work before, here.

The exam mainly covered the comprehension of specifications, diagrams used in System design (State Transition, Activity, Use Case, Class, Sequence, PERT, etc) and BCS Ethics. All of which were quite interesting. 🙂

I achieved a grade of 72% — which is a first class — so hopefully, along with my Group work I will have a first class grade overall for the module.

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!
