BCS accreditation and exemption confirmed
Posted: Monday, 27 November 2006 00:00
The Department has been notified by the British Computer Society (BCS) that students passing the courses below can gain exemption from the BCS Professional Examinations thereby providing a route to BCS Membership. Additionally, as a Nominated Body of the Engineering Council UK and the Science Council BCS has accredited these courses at Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and Chartered Scientist level.
The courses are: BSc Information Systems and Management, MSc Computer Science, MSc Advanced Information Systems, MSc Web Information Management. Students must pass the project at the first attempt to gain exemption.
When the BCS visited us the BSc Information Systems and Computing and the MSc Intelligent Information Systems were just starting so it was too early to apply for exemption for these courses.
