About Census Dates


This unit discusses social, legal and ethical aspects of the computing industry and exposes students to existing standards of professional behavior. It also covers the principles, techniques and tools of project management and focuses on the aspects of software documentation during the analysis phase of software engineering. Students will develop skills appropriate to professional computing employment, particularly written, verbal and interpersonal communications skills, group work, time and meeting management, developing an appreciation that the Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) profession is largely people-centered rather than technology-centered.
