Degree Modules Choice

09 November 2013 - 04:14 AM

Hi everyone,


First of all I would like to point that this is my first post on the forums.


I am currently taking a degree in Computer Science an IT with the OU and I need some help regarding what modules to choose in my year two. Currently I am finishing the 1st year and after that I can choose a specialisation modules. I have always been interested in programming, and besides the Uni degree I am also taking a Game Institute course (http://www.gameinstitute.com/), currently doing the C++ stuff.


On the second year I have to do 120 credits, and  modules available are: 


Object-oriented Java programming (M250) (30 credits) and Software development with Java (M256) (30 credits). -- they belong to the Software development pathway.


and then


To complement your chosen specialism, you can either choose a second specialism to focus your studies on areas that are of most interest to you:

  • Digital technologies – Communication and information technologies (T215) (60 credits)
  • Networking – Cisco networking (CCNA) (T216) (60 credits)
  • Solutions development – Designing applications with Visual Basic (MT264) and Web technologies (TT284) (30 credits each).

Or alternatively you may choose any two individual 30-credit modules from those listed above or the 30-credit modules below:

  • Algorithms, data structures and computability (M269)
  • Accreditation of Certificated Practitioners 2 (TM227)
  • Change, strategy and projects at work (T227)
  • IT project and service management (M258).


Here is the link from where the info was taken from http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/qualification/pathways/q62-12.htm


What do you guys think and what are the best choices for game programming?
