Informatics has been discontinued. This module is not currently being run on any WMG programme.


The contents of this module encompass five overarching themes in the area of Informatics and been underpinned by research outcomes conducted within the WMG’s Digital Engineering and Visualization group. The module focuses specifically at non-computer science graduates and hence will use a ‘ground-up’ approach as a delivery mechanism. This means that there are no specific prerequisites to this module. This case-based module has strong connections to the ‘basic core modules’ Business Information Systems Development and Enterprise Information System modules, and provides a complementary ‘non-core’ module for the E2BM, EBM, ITFM and SEAL streams.


On completion of this course modules, successful participants will be able to:

  1. Identify and model business scenarios from a range of domains from engineering & manufacturing to service using UML.
  2. Recognize and identify different types of data capturing techniques within the engineering and manufacturing sector.
  3. Apply different visualization methodologies in complex business processes.
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of social aspects of informatics and the legal issues associated with it in a commercial environment.
  5. Apply methodical approaches to mange informatics projects.
