                                   maintaining social media platforms. Students will leverage unstructured social media data to
                              extract innovative insights and actionable patterns through the application of sophisticated mining

                            master the prevailing force of social media.

                            Students will gain hands-on experience in planning, designing, implementing and managing a website
                            using a content management system. It will also provide students with the ability to manipulate
                            enterprise-class web analytic solutions to undertake advanced data analysis of critical back-end
                            information to support businesses in measuring, monitoring and benchmarking website performance
                            against that of key industry players. Finally, on completion of this course, graduates will develop a
                            diverse range of skillsets where they can apply digital strategies for their company to capture and

                                                 3D solid modelling is the most advanced method of geometric modelling in
                                                 three dimensions. Solid modelling is the representation of the solid parts of
                                                  an object on your PC. The typical geometric model is made up of wire frames
                                                  that show the object in the form of wires. This wire frame structure can be
                                                 two dimensional, two and half dimensional or three dimensional. Providing
                                                 surface representation to the wire three dimensional views of geometric models
                                                makes the object appear solid on the PC screen and this is what is called solid
                                                modelling.

                                            The aim of this programme is to provide the learner with a working knowledge of
                                          3D solid modelling hardware, software and drafting techniques for industry and a
