The first year course for Computer Systems Engineering provides a comprehensive grounding in the principles of Computer Science, alongside the experience of engineering electronic systems. You will study core material in computer programming, data structures and algorithms as well as system modelling, electronic devices and circuits. Alongside core material, you will have the opportunity to select from a carefully selected range of complementary options in computer science and engineering..
The normal load is 120 CATS credits. Students are required to take seven core modules (105 CATS) and additional credit selected from the list of optional modules below. Students may take up to 30 CATS of unusual options. However, in Year 1 we advise that students do not take more than 120 CATS.
