Fourth Year Regulations

Students will be offered a choice of courses from the approved course list. Students take seven options, each of which is examined either by a written paper or by essay/coursework. The course assessed by essay/ coursework is considered as the written examination. Students may study up to two optional courses offered by other departments in the Engineering Faculty, the Imperial College Business School or the Humanities Department. Students must also submit an outsourcing report which is unassessed, and an individual project, and must also give an individual presentation.


Each lecture course has assessed coursework associated with it.
There is also supporting project work which is assessed.
