Programme Notes:

  • Optional Modules: Not all options may be available in any particular year. Some option combinations are only available if the timetable permits. As students may have to make preliminary option choices before timetables are available, changes may be needed later if there are clashes. In selecting options, students need to pay attention to pre- and co-requisites.
  • Project: Students must pass the workshop module before being allowed to proceed to the project.
  • Programme Approval: Students' individual programmes of study must be approved by the Programme Director (as the nominee of the Head of School).
  • Project: Project topics must be approved by the Programme Director as being appropriate to the Aims and Learning Outcomes of the programme.
  • Programme Requirements: Students must take either the 10 credit Fundamentals Software Engineering module, or the two Software Engineering modules 27113 and 27114.
  • Please note: The modules listed on the website for this programme are regularly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and informed by the latest research and teaching methods. Unless indicated otherwise, the modules listed for this programme are for students starting in 2017. We aim to publish any changes to compulsory modules and programme structure for 2018 entry by 1 September 2017 and recommend you refer back to this page shortly after that date for any changes. On rare occasions, we may need to make unexpected changes to compulsory modules after that date; in this event we will contact offer holders as soon as possible to inform or consult them as appropriate.
