Third Year Discrete Mathematics MEng

In the third year the main focus is on applications of discrete mathematics to computer science. Students take an individual project in discrete mathematics together with advanced modules relating to algorithms. Options are chosen from a range of modules which reflect both the research strengths within the departments as well as the wider context of advances in the discipline.

Candidates must have obtained an overall average of at least 65% in Year 2 in order to proceed to Year 3 of the DM MEng course. Candidates who fail to meet this requirement will be transferred to the BSc in Discrete Mathematics.

The normal load is 120 CATS credits. Candidates for Honours are required to take five core modules totalling 90 CATS credits and 30 CATS credits selected from the list of level 3 optional modules available to the third year of the Computer Science degree or the Mathematics degree.
