Computer Engineering program structure

Computer engineering programs are available at a range of levels, including bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. As an undergraduate, you can study computer engineering as a BSc, BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) or MEng (Master of Engineering).

The MEng program includes an additional year of study that will convert a bachelor’s to a master’s level qualification. You often get the opportunity to convert a BEng program to an MEng after the first year if you have achieved the necessary grades.

Bachelor’s programs can take between three and five years, depending on where you study and the type of program you choose. You can study a separate master’s (MSc) if you already have a bachelor’s degree, which will usually take one or two years. PhD programs are also available, and you will focus your studies and research on a specific area of computer engineering.

Teaching will take the form of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and computer laboratory work. Most programs will assess you through coursework, written exams and presentations, but this will vary for each module. The program structure and content will be specific to each course, but common modules include:

  • Mathematics for computing
  • Data science
  • Programming
  • Systems analysis and design (SAD)
  • Circuit theory
  • Digital electronics
  • Computer architecture and operating systems
