Course format and assessment

Teaching

We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the programme. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.

You are expected to spend approximately 150 hours of effort (i.e. about 10 hours per credit) for each module you attend in your degree. These 150 hours cover every aspect of the module: lectures, tutorials, lab-based exercises, independent study based on personal and provided lecture notes, tutorial preparation and completion of exercises, coursework preparation and submission, examination revision and preparation, and examinations.

Assessment

The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of written examinations, essays, coursework and individual or group projects and oral presentations. The research project will be assessed through a dissertation. 

Career prospects

Our graduates have continued on to have very successful careers in industry and research. Recent employers have included general software consultancy companies, specific software development businesses and the IT departments of large institutions (financial, telecommunications and public sector). Some graduates have entered into the field of academic and industrial research in software engineering, bio-informatics, algorithms, artificial intelligence and computer networks.
