CSC MSc Core Options

The CSC MSc has been revised and there are now only 3 Core modules CY900 (6 CATS) , CY901 (12 CATS) and CY903 (12 CATS) which equates to 30 CATS, therefore MSc students need to choose 2 to 3 Core Option Modules and one optional module to equate to 60 CATS.

For each of these modules you choose you will need to get an Unusual Options Form completed. This should be returned to the Postgraduate Office on the 5th Floor of the Physics building where it will then be sent to the Director of the Centre for Scientific Computing for final approval.

When considering modules it is important that you take their timetabling into consideration. Some courses are taught in blocks of two or more weeks and others in weekly lectures and seminars over a longer period.

Please see the Core Option modules below:
