I am the course leader for HND/BSc Computing (General) pathway (Award Map
). It is designed for those who would like to explore various computing areas for their undergraduate studies. As a result, graduates on this pathway will have broad job opportunities. Details of the course can be found from the Programme Guide
. Personal Tutoring:
As the personal tutor, I am very happy to support all of my tutees. If you need my help, please send me an email describing the issue(s) you have. I will reply you as soon as possible or we can make a face-to-face appointment if needed. The general expectation is that you need to meet with me at least three times each academic year. You can meet with me individually or as a small group, depending on the issues to be talked about.
I have been supervising both BSc and MSc dissertations. Some topics that I would like to supervise this year can be found here. If you are not interested in any of the topics on the list, but still would like me to be your supervisor, please send an email about your dissertation idea, or we can make an appointment for a discussion.
