Approved Curriculum for those progressing to 2nd year in 2017-18

In order to register for session 2017-18, one of the requirements is to have an approved curriculum, although the choice of optional / elective classes may later be altered through choice early in the new session or availability/timetabling constraints.

MEng CS do not have electives in 2nd year. MEng CS students should select between options CS212 and CS215 on Pegasus in order to have a provisional curriculum approved.

2nd year BSc(Hons) CS and SE students require to pick a 10 credit elective in order to have an approved provisional curriculum for 2017-18. Please read the Electives 2016-17 guidance and add an elective following that guidance on to your curriculum on Pegasus. At the start of the new session, the list of appropriate electives will be updated (due to class availability and timetabling) but is unlikely to change much. Elective choice may be changed during the first two weeks of the new session.

First Day Meeting for 2nd years 2016-17

Credit Shortfall 2016-17

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 isla.ross@strath.ac.uk if you are in this position and unsure what is required of you.
