Course Structure

The degree follows the same structure as the MEng CES degree, but integrates a full year (Year 4) at a partner university overseas. Language classes may be taken to prepare for the year abroad and full academic credit is given for the subjects taken overseas.

Course Syllabus

The employability of CES graduates is one of the highest of all disciplines. They have taken up posts as system analysts, information security engineers and software designers with employers such as BP, Amazon, Cisco and Microsoft. 

Fundamental principles and concepts are established in Year 1 through electronic engineering, maths and computer science classes. Years 2 and 3 build on this base while introducing you to programming languages and techniques; computer communications; and hardware and software engineering systems. In Years 4 and 5 you customise your degree by choosing specialist topics such as Multimedia Information, Embedded Systems, AI Techniques, E-Commerce and Computer Security to match your career aspirations. There is also a group project. Transfer from BEng to MEng is possible after any year.
