This module seeks to investigate themes within design and engineering that relate to socio cultural and engineering analysis of "Purpose and Performance". It is intended to introduce students to important aspects of design and engineering as a starting point for the synthesis of ideas and innovations in design and engineering. The briefs set out a framework within which the students generate ideas, rather than being directed toward a conventional design outcome or specialist area. This module will run in parallel with the Context module, and encourage students to engage with and understand the value of discourse within design practice which is an interdisciplinary activity of technical and socio cultural creative thinking.

This module explores the political and artistic aims and effects of non-theatrical performance in the twentieth century and contemporary urban environment. It explores how the city is sometimes conceived as a dystopian site of potentially enormous social oppression. And it examines everyday, artistic and activist performative responses to this potential subjection, responses which imagine the city as, instead, a utopian site of personal and social liberation. We contextualise and historicise our analysis through studying various theoretical analyses of urban experience (e.g. Baudelaire, Benjamin, Debord, Lefebvre) as well as a variety of artistic practices (e.g. everyday interventions, activism, public art). Throughout the module, we work to map the ideas and practices we encounter, many originally grounded in Paris, in our own experiences of London. The module concludes by imagining what performance might do next to contest the particular challenges of living in the city now and to explore and exploit its opportunities. Please note that in addition to the weekly 2-hour seminar there will be regular 3-hour field-trips and/or screenings.

The course in Ethics in Business and Finance is concerned with the study of ethical dilemmas arising in business people and financial players¿ decision making and it aims at offering a pragmatic approach to the analysis of those issues. In fact, the module will intertwine the theoretical foundations of ethics with the legal framework in which companies operate. The main focus would be on corporate governance and in particular the laws related to the provision of financial services (as for example, conflicts of interests and duties to clients) and on those pursuing financial markets integrity (for instance, rules on market manipulation, takeovers and bankruptcy). The study of the foundations of Corporate Social Responsibility will be carried out. Special attention will be given also to self regulatory practices, such as standards of conducts and codes of ethics. Case studies will be presented and discussed with students. At the end of the course students should be able to identify and deal with the ethical dimension of financial activities

This module will provide students with the core legal rules in relation to international and comparative aspects of design law. The first semester will concentrate on the following aspects: the legal rationale and socio-economic history of design regulation; a detailed analysis of protection of designs under the following IP framework: copyright, sui generis design, trade mark, utility model and patent laws under international, EU and US law; a detailed analysis and study of the EU Community Design law; case studies which illustrate the differences between registered and unregistered design laws, and the need to consider the other aspects of intellectual property law when considering the protection of a product design.

The module focuses on the field of complex networked systems in its infancy and presents the structure of networks and their dynamics as a key concept across disciplines. Examples of networked systems include the Internet, the World Wide Web, social networks of acquaintance or other connections between individuals, inter-organisational networks, neural networks, metabolic networks, food webs, and many others. There is increasing evidence that such diverse networks share common topological and dynamical features, indicating the existence of robust self-organising principles and evolutionary laws that govern many natural and social systems. The course aims to develop a unified theoretical framework for the analysis of these common properties shared by a wide range of networked systems. This framework will then be used for the discussion of sociologically relevant phenomena that exhibit complex network structures and dynamics, such as epidemics of disease, cultural fads, financial crises, organisational innovation and inter-firm coordination. If public health authorities want to minimise the danger of a viral epidemic, but have limited vaccinations, how should they be distributed throughout the population? If a firm wants to initiate a word-of-mouth campaign for a new product, but can hand out free samples to only a few people, who should they pick? How vulnerable are large infrastructure networks like the power grid or the Internet to random failure or even deliberate attacks? How do new ideas become crazes, or small shocks get blown out of all proportion in the form of cascades throughout a financial system? To address these and many other problems, the course will develop a highly interdisciplinary approach to social science by combining current research literature on complex systems and social networks with contributions of relevant organisational and sociological research.

This Course introduces you to and explores the purpose, nature and operation of the Financial Accounting function within businesses, particularly limited liability companies in the UK. It reveals, illustrates and explores how the financial accounting systems operate when tasked with measuring and recording the financial value of the transactions, events and activities of a business. In so doing, it examines the nature and scope of financial accounting and the underlying conceptual framework of accounting conventions and standards. It further looks at the ratio analysis and associated interpretation of published financial statements from the perspectives of a range of differing users of financial accounting information. Accordingly, the module seeks to equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills to enable you to identify and record the financial value of business transactions, events and activities, and to generate financial information through the construction of Balance Sheets, Income Statements (Profit Statements) and Cash Flow Statements, and through the use of financial ratios.
