True, and what specialisation was that? Gaming and Multimedia or Software?

I'm only interested in Networking and Mobile Technologies myself but just wondering what ones look like they're getting scrapped.

Out of both semesters there are 3 difference lectures in each specialisation.

One in semester 1 and Two in semester 2.

Guess We'll see in September. I don't actually blame the college for doing that if isn't enough people it kinda makes sense.

I just finished by 1st year, doing BSHC course. 3 more years to go, so far 2 people are confirmed to have Dropped out. About 20 more are unknown as we don't have contact with them much so we dont know their results, and about 7-10 are repeating. We had rougly 70 people in course, now I expect to see around 50-60

Both as far as I know. From what I can see only the Cloud Computing and the Mobile/Networking specialisations survived.

What is cloud computing specialization? I mean like what can you learn in it? Open google drive, upload, done. That's it?
Or does it teach also how framework of cloud computing service is formed, how to set up such, how to code it and so on?

I've received an email back from NCI saying:-

"Cloud Computing and Mobile and Multimedia specialisations were by far the most popular choice with the final year part-time students".

So they're the only two going ahead this year.

The email also said that this is the first year of specializations. So there's no track record to guess what way it will go in future.

I'll be sick if I don't get my first or second choice come 4th year. It's a bit off so no point worrying about it until it comes around.

Can anyone tell me what 3rd year part-time students did for the work placement this year? Did you get a job? How many hours did you have to do? Was there something else available if you were unable to do work placement because of full-time job?

I'd imagine it would be similar to:

MSC part time

which is the module list for both the MSC and the postgrad diploma which we're just finishing up at the moment. Probably just the deployment and cloud computing modules, as you guys would be doing most of the other stuff already.

I think only 2 people in the course didn't get exemptions based on prior work, there was also some wrangling over students who were on the Free Fee's scheme due to work experience cancelling your dole money.
