I'm assuming that your course, Multimedia and Internet Technology involves programming then.
According to the course content, only the first year involves a lot of programming, while the other years have less of it.
Where does it say that?
This is a translation to what the modules actually mean
Web Page Design – basic theory of web design , HTML, using Macromedia Dreamweaver - HTML
Music & Audio Technology – the principles of Midi, using Cubase - This may have to change but this also involved studying some of the physics of accustics.
Introduction to Digital Technology – an overview of the digital technology used in networked computer systems. This is a new module so I have no idea what it is.
Business Systems – how the internet is used by business - A filler business module.
Multimedia Programming – an introduction to Multimedia using Visual Basic - VB6 mickey mouse introduction to programming module.
Web-based Data Systems – introduction to databases - Mickey mouse Access database module, I got 80% without putting any effort in.
Animation Techniques – animation for the web using Macromedia Flash - I found this really difficult and involves programming.
Introduction to Computers & Networks – architecture of PC’s and network systems
Fundamentals of Video – theory of video and practical digital video production- The exam in this is really hard, you have to understand how a colour analogue TV signal is broadcasted, a lot of physics in this module.
Group Design Project – project management techniques and a group based project - This is an important module on projectment management but I found it boring.
High Level Programming – an introduction to C programming - You have to produce a naughts and crosses game in C which should play against the computer, not an easy module as such but I really enjoyed it.
Network Technology – planning and managing a computer network system. - This involves both the theory of networking and the actual practise in Windows 2003 Server.
Computing & Design – graphic design using Adobe Photoshop and Multimedia design using Macromedia Director - As the title says, it wasn't difficult but was time consuming, director also invovles some programming.
Entrepreneurial Principles & Techniques – an introduction to management - A crappy filler module which is basicaly A level business studies with a different slant.
Computer Audio Systems – audio recording techniques and practices - I found this module really hard, we had to study basic accustics and record a perfect radio recording, it is surprisingly much harder than you would think.
Server Side Programming – programming data driven web sites in ASP and PHP on different server technologies. - This is done in two parts, the first is to produce an online shop in ASP, the second is to produce an auction site in PHP, I really injoyed both of these and I think I got more out of this module than any others.
Programming on the Internet – an introduction to Java - You basicialy have to produce a game in a Java applet. Quite complex programming is involved.
Group Design Project – a web based group project - Again this involves quite a of programming as we had to produce quite an advanced site.
Project – a major individual project in an area of your choice - This is a major programming module where you have to produce a major application of some sort, carry out researchand write a dissertation.
Video & Audio Post Production – advanced video and audio editing techniques - Can be good fun but it is really really time consuming. - No programming invovled.
Graphics Programming – advanced C++ for Windows programming - We have to write a windows calculator in MFC C++ which has presidence.
Satellite & Mobile Communications – satellite and wireless data transmission techniques - All about wireless communcations.
Computing & Design – evaluation of complex computer software - All about usability engineering but you have to produce an application so some basic programming is involved.
Web Services – development of XML Web Services via Visual Studio.NET - This is perhaps the most advanced programming module on the course, its fairly tricky but ok when you get the hang of it, its done in C# ASP.NET
Advanced Multimedia Protocols – theory of providing multimedia applications over a network - This is difficult, we have to lots of encoding such as Huffman and Fuarier.
Multimedia Systems – advanced Visual Basic programming - This module has been crapped as it was VB6 whichis now outdated.
Entrepreneurial Management – advanced management techniques - Another easy business module.
As you can see behind those module titles there is an awful lot of programming though not as much as computer science.
PQ my dissertation and project was worth 40 credits though which is a huge chunk of my degree.
