Computer Engineering Modules

CS7GV2 – Mathematics of Light and Sound

(Semester 1, 5 ECTS) Wave equation and its solution; Maxwell´s equations; Fourier transform and analysis; vibration; mass-spring-damper systems; numerical methods; simulation software.

CS7NS5 – Security and Privacy

(Semester 2, 5 ECTS) The objectives of this module are: to develop an in-depth understanding of risk, data
privacy, threats and risks of security breaches, an awareness of computer security
(cryptographic) and protocol techniques, and an ability to make appropriate
decisions about securing data.

CS7NS4 – Urban Computing

(Semester 1, 5 ECTS) This module aims to provide both a theoretical and practical understanding of urban
computing and associated cyber-physical concepts, principles, challenges and
solutions.

CS7NS2 – Internet of Things

(Semester 2, 5 ECTS) In this module, students will explore the prevailing vision for an Internet of Things in
a practical, pragmatic manner.

CS7NS1 – Scalable Computing

(Semester 1, 5 ECTS) This module aims to provide a theoretical and practical understanding of modern scalable systems and architectures, from billions of highly distributed Internet of Things devices, through to present day concepts, such as Cloud architectures and systems.

CS7IS3 – Information Retrieval and Web Search

(Semester 1, 5 ECTS) Explain the process of content indexing in information retrieval including stop word removal, conflation (stemming, string-comparison), and the language dependency of these methods.

CS7IS1 – Knowledge and Data Engineering

(Semester 1, 5 ECTS) The module is designed to explore the management, delivery and inter-operability of knowledge, information and data through knowledge and data engineering.

CS7GV5 – Real-Time Animation

(Semester 2, 5 ECTS) The aim of this module is to provide students with a deep understanding of the theory and techniques behind real time animation.

CS7GV3 – Real-Time Rendering

(Semester 2, 5 ECTS) This module deals with programming for GPU pipeline architectures e.g. geometry,
rasterisation, texturing, fragment / pixel and vertex shaders.
