Hi everyone...
I received a mail from my future University from UK.."Teesside Univ, Middlesbrough".

I dont know what most of the modules deal with.. wheather they are theory or coding etc etc.... Could some one here please throw some light on what these modules deal with..

Semester 1:

Database Systems
Information Systems Management
EITHER Networks and Communications OR Networks and Net Management
Object Technology 1
User Interfaces
Advanced C Programming

Semester 2:

and Communications in Sem 1)
Expert Systems
Group Project
Language Systems
Object Technology 2 (must have studied Object Technology 1 in Semester 1)

I would suggest talking with people at that school, especially ones that have taken the classes to get their opinion. I dont know about everyone else, but some of those classes aren't even offered at my school, they probably all are, but are different names, like ex: what is "group project" what are you doing there, one big group project on what? Talk with people locally, then make your own decision. I hate when people tell me to take $$$$ i dont need. Unless you take classes that you are interested in, you wont perform your best, you wont want to be there.

Surely they should have sent you a booklet or something that gives a breakdown of all the modules offered by the department? That's what we get from my uni. It gives a description of the material covered, amount of lecturing time per week and how it is assessed etc. I know you live abroad but still they should provide you with something like that.

They should have an Indian Student Association there !!! Just hunt around. I'm sure you'll find something.

Thanx guys...

The problem is my Degree computer studies borrows the modules from the rest of the 14 computer degrees.. Thst is i create a course for my self based on the subjects i have previously studied.. Now i have the description about the degrees in the booklet they sent but not the modules....

You might want to email or call them up to find out more about those modules?

Well the guy said that the description is too long.. and he said i will be given the info when i come there.. But i want it before i go there.... And calling up from India is quite expensive.. I will be spending about Rs 40 a minute.. nearly a $ a minute...

Does the U have any websites? Try browsing their web if they have one and if everything else failed then calling them should be the last resort. :)

Good luck.
