Abstract: It is proved that for any finite CW-complex $ X$ there exists a ring $ A$ of continuous functions on $ X$, and natural 1-1 correspondences between the finitely generated projective $ A$-modules (resp. $ A{ \otimes _R}C$-modules), and the topological real vector bundles (resp. complex vector bundles) over $ X$ where $ A$ is Noetherian and has Krull-dimension equal to the topological dimension of $ X$.
