Third Year (MEng) Courses and Regulations

List of courses 

Autumn, spring, and summer courses can be viewed on our Computing third year (MEng)Students select six courses from an approved list of electives. In addition, students need to take an I-Explore module as a requirement. 


Each lecture course has associated coursework. The weighting is normally 20%, although for some more practical courses the weighting is 30%. The courses with 30% are: COMP60019, and COMP70050 while COMP60003 has separate assessment criteria. The rest is assessed by written examination. 


Students participate in a group project in the first term. 

In addition to the core and compulsory modules the placement constitutes the equivalent of 15 ECTS of load in the third year, but this does not contribute to the final degree classification.
