Approved Curriculum for those progressing to 2nd year in 2018-19
In order to register for session 2018-19, one of the requirements is to have an approved curriculum, although the choice of optional / elective classes may later be altered up to early in the new session through choice or due to availability/ timetabling constraints.
MEng CS do not have electives in 2nd year. MEng CS students should initially select only between options CS212 and CS215 on Pegasus in order to have a provisional curriculum approved. (CS217 will also become an option later – see below.)
2nd year BSc(Hons) CS and SE students require to pick a 10 credit elective in order to have an approved curriculum for 2018-19. Please read Electives2018-2019 for choices and add an elective following that guidance on to your curriculum on Pegasus. Elective choice may be changed up until the end of the first two weeks of the semester in which the elective runs.(CS217 will also become an elective possibility later – see below.)
Class CS217 2018-19
i) For those progressing to year 2 from CS1, SE1 and Natural Sciences 1 :
Provisional Timetables for CIS 2nd years. Also links for timetables for other classes (which may have been selected as electives). Timetables are subject to change up until the start of the relevant semester so students are advised to check lecture rooms at the start of week 1. Allocation to CIS lab and tutorial slots will not take place until during week 2 – information on the process will be given at the First Day Meeting for 2nd year CIS students on 17th September 11am in The Assembly Hall. Semester 2 lab/tutorial allocation will take place during the first 2 weeks of semester 2.
If you have a credit shortfall (fewer than 120 credits) on entering 2nd year then your curriculum will require to include an approved means to make up that shortfall. Please contact your Adviser of Studies email@example.com if you are in this position and unsure what is required of you.
