3. Electronics A self-contained assembly of electronic components and circuitry, such as a stage in a computer, that is installed as a unit.
4. Computers A portion of a program that carries out a specific function and may be used alone or combined with other modules of the same program.
5. A self-contained unit of a spacecraft that performs a specific task or class of tasks in support of the major function of the craft.
6. A unit of education or instruction with a relatively low student-to-teacher ratio, in which a single topic or a small section of a broad topic is studied for a given period of time.
7. Mathematics An algebraic system that resembles a vector space, except that the set of scalars forms a ring and not necessarily a field.
8. Biology A unit of modular growth, such as a coral polyp.
9. Archaic A standard or unit of measurement.

[Latin modulus, diminutive of modus, measure; see med- in Indo-European roots.]

module

(ˈmɒdjuːl)
n
1. (Computer Science) a self-contained unit or item, such as an assembly of electronic components and associated wiring or a segment of computer software, which itself performs a defined task and can be linked with other such units to form a larger system
2. (Architecture) a standard unit of measure, esp one used to coordinate the dimensions of buildings and components; in classical architecture, half the diameter of a column at the base of the shaft
3. (Furniture) a standardized unit designed to be added to or used as part of an arrangement of similar units, as in furniture
4. (Astronautics) astronautics any of several self-contained separable units making up a spacecraft or launch vehicle, each of which has one or more specified tasks: command module; service module.
