Computing Third Year (BEng)

Third Year (BEng) Courses and Regulations

List of courses 

Autumn, spring and summer courses can be viewed on our Computing third year (BEng) webpage. Students select five 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 and an individual project which spans the whole academic year.

Summary of the table's contents

The marks for the three years are aggregated into an overall mark. In order to pass the degree the students must pass all modules in year 3 (including I-Explore) and also pass the Individual Project. The pass mark is 40%.  

Classification for BEng 

The marks for all components of the three years of the course are aggregated into an overall mark. The class of degree awarded depends on this overall mark, with the proviso that candidates must have passed all modules in year 3 and normally at least 40% in their individual project. 

In addition to these requirements, candidates are normally expected to successfully complete the BEng degree programme in three continuous years. 

For each year, the total possible ECTS weightings are: 

Year 1 total 60
Year 2 total 60
Year 3 total 60
