Final Honour School of Engineering and Computing Science Part II 2009
The Standing Committee for the Honour School of Engineering and Computing Science has approved the following subjects for examination in Part II of the Honour School of Engineering and Computing Science 2009. Undergraduates must offer the equivalent of three three-hour papers from those listed below.
C3B Advanced Electronics
C4A Control Systems
C4B Information Engineering
C7B Engineering Mathematics
Advanced Data Structures and Algorithms*
Intelligent Systems I
Intelligent Systems II
Each of the Engineering C papers will be of 3 hours in length. The Computer Science papers are all 1½ hours in length and equivalent to half a paper.
Each of the papers in the series C3 and C4 will assume knowledge of the material examined in the corresponding Part I paper, B3 Electrical Engineering, or B4 Information Engineering.
Object Oriented Programming will be a prerequisite for Object Oriented Design and Intelligent Systems I will be a prerequisite for Intelligent Systems II.
* It is not possible to guarantee that these options can be scheduled to avoid a timetable clash with one or more of the Engineering papers listed.
