Blended learning is a method of course delivery where some course content is delivered face-to-face and some delivered online using Internet-based technologies. The Master's and Postgraduate diploma programmes employ this method to maximize student engagement, increase information dissemination and retention; improve student learning outcomes. As part of this approach, each student enrolled in the programme is provided with his or her own laptop on which they can install any additional software used by the instructor as part of his or her blended mode approach to teaching.
The Postgraduate Diploma is integrated into the Master's programme so that students enrolled in the diploma programme can easily transition to the Master's programme any time they desire. The content for the Postgraduate Diploma consists of the core courses and one additional course from the courses on offer.
Cutting-edge projects are crucial to the success of the Master's programme. We will be partnering with a number of technology companies in Barbados and around to world to bring students interesting and challenging projets that have real-world impact. These projects will expose students to technologies and problems that rely on the knowledge gained in the programme as well as expose them to tools, techniques and technologies that go well beyond any thing that can be taught in the classroom.
