||Face to Face
To introduce the theory of software engineering modeling methodologies such as the Unified Modeling Language;

Entity-Relationship Modeling; Relational Databases; Relational query language (Structured Query Language);
Hierarchical Modeling; XML Databases; XML query language (XQuery); Model Equivalency.
Total marks: 100; 50% examination, 50% continual assessment
10 lecture hours (with lecturer); 4 practical or tutorial hours (with tutor); 32 private hours.
The teaching methods outlined in the module exploit a blended learning approach with three main types of contact:
Lecture hours provide an in-depth exploration of the subject area; identifying broad
themes, reading material and areas for further consideration.
The practical/tutorial hours facilitate the learner in their project,
allowing them to complete exercises in support of that project under the supervision
of an experienced tutor.
The private hours will be necessary to complete the course reading material, examine digital resources, participate in group discussions or seminars and acquire
any necessary skills. The students will also be expected to complete an interim continual assessment and the final assessment in the remainder of the hours.
