If you dont mind me asking, What do you think of their equipment, the modules and the lecturers?
I dont do digital forensics though I do do
Hardware Software Systems and Graphics,
Introduction to Security Technologies
Introduction to Software Development and
Maths & Stats for computing students
HSSG - The first lecturer we had was really boring and now the second one managed to one up him and make it even more boring. With the lecturer we have now, he's a good teacher but a bad lecturer(he reads off the powerpoint slides)
IST - We were doing biometrics first for about 4/5 weeks and had a guy called David. He seems like a nice guy and got us through the lectures though his powerpoint slides were not that detailed and they were more of a reference for him than for us. It meant writing notes was a MUST
His first test was negatively marked (ie: one wrong = minus a mark) and now we're doing some stuff on forensic stuff, where we're learning mainly about what evidence you can get, how to get it, how to not get the evidence thrown out of court etc...
The guy who teaches that is quite unconvential, quite funny and therefore a lot of people like the lesson
ISD - We're still doing java at the moment. It's an introduction and if you've done programming before, then I suppose it might be a bit boring. We have a lecturer called Graham who's voice is quite boring but he gets to the point and makes it do-able
Maths & Stats - If you've done A level maths you don't need to do this AFAIK. The teachers seem to help more here because this is the area that everyone seems to need help the most. A lot of us preferred the way the last lecturer taught us because she went through it a few times
Thats it for the first semester
