The size of some one part, as the diameter of semi-diameter of the base of a shaft, taken as a unit of measure by which the proportions of the other parts of the composition are regulated. Generally, for columns, the semi-diameter is taken, and divided into a certain number of parts, called minutes (see Minute), though often the diameter is taken, and any dimension is said to be so many modules and minutes in height, breadth, or projection.

A module is a uniquely characterised self-contained representation of a conceptual information unit, which is aimed at communicating that information. Comment: Depending on the language in which the information is represented, a segment of a module can consist of, for example, a phrase, a paragrah, a mathematical formula, a figure, or a movie. See section 3.1.1 for the abstract definition. A domain and genre specific definition of modules is given in chapter for articles on experimental sciences and in section A.1 for experimental molecular dynamics in particular. See appendix for concrete examples. There are different kinds of modules: elementary modules and complex modules, including compound and cluster modules.

A discrete part of certain units i.e. a unit may comprise a number of modules
A module is a self-contained block of learning with separate aims and defined learning outcomes. All modules are assigned to University Academic Departments/Centres. (For full description see Academic Regulation C2). Each module has an alphabetical and numerical code. The alphabetical code identifies the University Department/Centre (the host Department/Centre) which is ultimately responsible for quality and standards. For collaborative provision, some modules are designed by and delivered only at partner institutions. Where this is the case the alphabetical code is specific to the University Department/Centre and the partner. This system ensures that module results are channelled to the correct assessment board. The first digit of the numerical code indicates the academic level at which the module is delivered and assessed. Module codes are generated by the University Academic Department/Centre.

an identical repeatable unit
In computer science, a module is a software entity that groups a set of (typically cohesive) subprograms and data structures. Modules are units that can be compiled separately, which makes them reusable and allows multiple programmers to work on different modules simultaneously. Modules also promote modularity and encapsulation (i.e. information hiding), both of which can make complex programs easier to understand.
