    MSc Information Systems University of Brighton

    The course at Brighton University - 1997-1998 - was taught in five streams:

    • Management Information Systems
      • Study was largely based upon selected chapters and case studies from Loudon and Loudon's Management Information Systems
    • Systems Analysis
      • My SA study was based upon SSADM, although Merise and OO Analysis were drawn upon to illustrate alternative approaches. Group project work required students to make use of the Case Tool SSADM Engineer 5.1.
    • Database Application
      • My study and project work revolved chiefly around relational models such as MS Access and CA - OpenIngres, although I was introduced to the theory of object-relational and OO database design.
    • Programming
      • I was taught practically in object-based Visual Basic 5, and theoretically with emphasis on fully OO concepts of Class and Modularity
    • Technology
      • I began with a term's study of computer hardware, followed by two terms of networking and Internet topics, including TCP/IP, SMTP, FTP, network management, directory services, and general Web history.
