The Computing Subject Benchmark  (http://www.qaa.ac.uk/Publications/InformationAndGuidance/Pages/Subject-benchmark-statement-Computing.aspx)

includes as Appendix B a list of topics that define the scope of the broad area of computing. It states:

The following list of topics... is not intended to define curricula or syllabi, it is merely provided as a set of
knowledge areas indicative of the technical areas within computing.

In this document we lay out how our modules relate to these topics.
