After completing this module, students will be expected to be able to:
1. Understand SQL database modelling and normalisation;
2. Appreciate the principles of Information Retrieval;
3. Apply and evaluate IR in a practical context;

of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules.
The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
