The course scheme is based on termly modules, with large groups of mixed ability students typically entering the University with no prior knowledge of software engineering. Using the method described, each student progresses from basic tools and techniques through several levels of expertise. Periods of academic study are alternated with practical application in order to consolidate the theoretical concepts. Other modules are able to move forward, in parallel to this process, and build on these central concepts whilst
