Programme Notes:

  • Note 1 Some of the modules in the option block are prerequisites for options available in the final year, so that choices need to be considered across years.
  • Note 2 Module Failure: The Syllabus web page for every module defines the resit rules if they are different from the first attempt -- follow the links under the module code.
  • Note 3 Progress Decisions: Refer to the University Regulations for further information on the general rules governing progression. There are no additional programme requirements.
  • Note 4 For some combinations of disciplines, it may be possible to vary the number of credits taken from the standard 60+60 pattern. Students should consult the relevant Programme Directors. The School of Computer Science will generally allow between 40 and 80 credits of Computer Science to be taken, at least 20 of which must be from taught modules (i.e. modules other than the Computer Science Project).
  • Note 5 There are no progress decisions between Year 3 and Year 4 of an MEng or MSci programme; they effectively form a 'double final year'.
  • Note 6 Students must take a project in one of their two disciplines.
  • Note 7 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.
  • Note 8 MEng and MSci students should note when choosing options that some topics may be studied either in the third year or in the fourth year but not both. Hence it is important to plan option choices across both years. Module descriptions for each module list the prohibited combinations.
  • Note 9 Degree Classification: Refer to the University Regulations for further information on the general rules governing degree classification.
  1. The Learning & Teaching and Assessment Methods above are not intended to be exclusive, but to indicate the main methods in use. Module Descriptions contain more detail.
  2. Whether to award accreditation is a decision made from time to time by a professional body according to criteria which are then current; hence there is no guarantee that the programme will actually be accredited for any particular year of entry by any particular professional body.
