and five optional modules
Modules offered may vary.
You learn about Rapid Development Tools (RAD) through the process of analysis, design and implementation of a web or mobile app. A range of RAD tools are studied, such as Mendix, MS LightSwitch and WaveMaker. You learn one of these tools in depth in order to explore more fully the capabilities of the tool.
Assessment: two in-course assessments. For the first assessment you design a RAD system. The second involves the implementation in your chosen tool. Short reflective essays and an advanced research topic also form part of the assessed work in both components.
