REGISTRATION RULES

1. You can choose up to four, fifteen credit modules in the one year. You can choose up to three, twenty credit modules in the one year.

2. Please note pre-requisite modules are bracketed e.g  C2 (C1). The pre-requisite module for C2 is C1. C1 must be successfully completed in order to be eligible to register for the C2 module. If an exemption has been granted in a pre-requisite module then it does not have to be completed. (Exemption is normally applicable to Level one and Level 2 modules only).

3. Two of the level 1 modules, MS001 and CT1, require a competence in Mathematics. If your background in mathematics is weak, please review the DCU Preparatory Mathematics Module at: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B2K_jtKmLo9YZnFZdGZKbENZdUU

Additionally it is recommended that you undertake the MS001 module before attempting the CT1 module.

4. Only in the case where Direct Entry has been granted will a student be allowed to register for Degree Level modules without first successfully completing the 4 modules at Level 1, i.e. MS001, CT1, C1 and HS1 must be completed (or exempted from) before a student can register for any Degree Level module.

5. Only in the case where Direct Entry has been granted will a student be allowed to register for Degree Level modules without first successfully completing the relevant Level 2 Modules, e.g. C2 must have been successfully completed before either CA or CB can be undertaken.

6. CA, CTA, HSA, MS00B and SDA are compulsory modules. MSA and CB are elective (optional) modules.

7. HSA, CB, MS00B and SDA are continoulsy assessed with no terminal examination. To the extent possible, it is recommended you take a mix of modules between those with continuous assessment only (i.e. no examinations) and those with both continuous assessment and examinations in the one year However, there may be advantages in taking MS00B and SDA in the same academic year, particularly if you want to develop a mobile application as a business idea.

8. There is an Introductory Workshop for the MS00B module on Saturday 28th September, 2019 (morning) in DCU. You should not undertake this module if you cannot attend this workshop.

9. There is an Introductory Workshop for the HSA module on Saturday 28th September, 2019 (afternoon) in DCU. You should not undertake this module if you cannot attend the workshop.

11. Students must have regular access to a PC with Microsoft Office 2010 or later(student offers may be available on the DCU ISS website), a broadband Internet connection, a headset/microphone and a webcam. Students with Apple-Mac computers may encounter specific issues as learning materials and software are typically designed on/for the Windows operating system. Where students are provided with software, for example SPSS, it will be for Windows OS. 

To study the SDA you will require an android phone containing either the Marshmallow or later version of operating system. If you have access to a laptop please bring it to the workshop.

For the IDE: Android Studio, please find requirements below: It is strongly recommended that you install the Android Studio IDE, before the course starts. If your development environment is Windows, you will also need to ensure that the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEMs) drivers are available. These drivers enable Android Studio to talk to your phone.  This can be verified by checking the following website
