Fourth Year Computer Science MEng 2025/26

The normal load is 120 CATS credits. Candidates are required to take one core module (30 CATS credits) and 90 CATS credits selected from the lists of optional modules below. It is possible to replace up to 30 CATS from the list of optional modules with modules external to the department. These would be classed as unusual options.

NOTE: In the third and fourth years combined, candidates are required to take at least 120 CATS credits of modules coded 4**. If candidates have not taken any level 4** in previous years and wish to take a module coded 3**, they can do so but will be required to overcat.

Optional module availability is subject to change.
