Finances for studying abroad on exchange
Do you want to study both computer science and electronic engineering, developing a broad skill-set across both disciplines?
This unique programme includes the digital design elements of the electronic engineering programmes, but also emphasises computer systems and software. We focus on the increasingly important areas of embedded systems, network computing, internet protocols and applications.
In the first and second year you’ll cover the foundations of each discipline, with modules in programming, circuit design, communications, software engineering, operating systems and signals. With a wide choice of modules in your final year, you’re free to direct your studies towards your aims and interests.
In the final year, you’ll design and carry out an individual project based on your own interests and linked to current research areas within the schools.
Our BEng Computer Systems Engineering programme is CEng accredited by The IET on behalf of the Engineering Council and fulfils the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer when presented with an accredited MSc. In addition, the programme meets the educational requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer.
Progression and award requirements for an accredited BEng/MEng are stricter than these requirements for a standard QMUL BEng/MEng degree. If a student does not satisfy the accreditation requirements but does satisfy the requirements for a standard QMUL BEng/MEng degree, the "EngC Pathway" suffix will not be added.
Join us on campus or online on Saturday 8 October
You can complete your Computer Systems Engineering degree in three or four years.
If you choose to do a year in industry or study abroad, this will take place in Year 3 and Year 3 modules will instead be studied in Year 4.
One Year-long double module allocated based on previous maths qualifications:
Please note that all modules are subject to change.
Apply for this degree with any of the following options. Take care to use the correct UCAS code - it may not be possible to change your selection later.
Students who do not have the required high school qualifications for admission to this degree, and students who do not meet their UCAS Conditional offer may be considered for the 4 year degree (foundation year plus the 3 year degree).
International students with Year 12 or a completed international high school certificate qualify for the one year foundation programme commonly known as the ISEFP.
The foundation programme offers a range of transferable skills and an opportunity to improve on your knowledge content for relevant Maths and Science subjects.
You will enrol on an Electronic Engineering BEng with Foundation which will offer progression to a range of degrees in the School of Eletronic Engineering and Computer Science including BEng Computer Systems Engineering . At the end of the foundation programme, students will be required to meet the progression requirements for admission to BEng Computer Systems Engineering.
Want to pick up some solid work experience while applying and improving your skills? Apply for our Computer Systems Engineering BEng with Industrial Experience to spend your third year working for a public- or private-sector organisation in a role directly related to your studies.
Our students have worked with companies including:

Please note that placements are highly competitive and awarded based on your application, academic track record and performance at interview. If you are not successful in securing a placement, your third year will be spent at Queen Mary completing your studies.
Go global and study abroad as part of your degree – apply for our Computer Systems Engineering BEng with a Year Abroad. Queen Mary has links with universities in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia (partnerships vary for each degree programme).
Find out more about study abroad opportunities at Queen Mary and what the progression requirements are.
You can do either a year in industry or a year abroad - you cannot combine these options.
You’ll spend 15 to 20 hours per week in lectures, laboratory sessions and tutorials. You will also be expected to complete additional hours of independent study. You’ll meet with your personal adviser regularly to ensure that you are settling in and progressing well.
Assessment typically includes a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations in May or June.
Individual and group projects are assessed through a written report, practical demonstration and oral examination.
The schools offer excellent on-campus resources to aid your studies, including our newly refurbished, state-of-the-art electronics lab and an informatics teaching laboratory with more than 300 PCs running Linux and Windows.
Alternative offers may be made to applicants taking the Extended Project Qualification.
