Overview of Learning Activities

Learning activities for this course include face-to-face lectures and tutorials. The basic theoretical background will be explained in the lectures and various real-world technology problems will be discussed and analysed in the lectures and tutorials. The individual project exposes you to managerial problem solving under close supervision of the course coordinator.

Overview of Learning Resources

You will typically need to use professional level resources such as one prescribed textbook,  lecture notes available on course Blackboard (accessed via myRMIT), and specialist books and journals that are accessible in the RMIT library and other major libraries. Internet sources may be helpful, but will not be sufficient by themselves.
