Dear people in OU land,
I would like to like to benefit from your opinion. I am just 60 points short of my BSc (Hons) Technology B20. I had planned to complete with U316 The Environmental Web. Since I have to get going and study in 2012 to avoid the fees hike I have to make a decision PDQ.
My dilemma comes from whether stick with B20 or to transfer to BA/BSc (Hons) Design and Innovation B61. I have all the necessary modules with the exception of U101 Design Thinking (compulsory) and my free choice of 60 points at level 3. I would like to do B301 Making Sense of Strategy.
The choice as I see it is:
Finish the BSc with U316, while enjoyable, is not wholly career relevant.
Take 18 -24 months longer and do the 120 points listed above, for a more relevant module choice and more specific degree.
I would benefit from any experiences from the modules above.
As a little bit of background, I am a Senior Quality Engineer working for a company that designs and manufactures electronic equipment. I am very involved in the R&D process.
Thanks in advance.
