Description of module content:

The module will span two trimesters. In the first trimester there will be a seminar series on teamworking skills which will draw on expertise both from within the School of Computing and out with the school. Where possible, the school’s entrepreneur in residence will contribute, along with the confident futures team.

Each team will investigate a suitable application, develop a business model and engineer its requirements.

The second trimester of study will involve design, development, testing and delivery of the application. The delivery could be a presentation at a student conference, an upload to an online market or submission to a competition such as Dare to be Digital or Google’s Summer of Code. Depending on the timescales, the competition may be internally judged.
