Finances for studying abroad on exchange
Study a blend of computer science and electronic engineering, to open up a wide range of career and further study options.
On this programme, you will study key computer science concepts such as programming and software engineering, as well as the design of microprocessors, circuits and distributed computer systems.
You'll have the opportunity to specialise in software or hardware in your third year, with a wide range of optional modules available (including security engineering, UX design and big data processing). Advice will be provided on the best optional modules to choose for your career goals.
This programme will be reviewed for re-accreditation by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in December 2023. This review is expected to result in accreditation for the 2024 and 2025 intakes. Accreditation can only be granted after a successful review and is subject to approval by the IET’s Academic Accreditation Committee.
This three-year programme is available with an additional foundation year, as well as an optional industrial experience year or year abroad.

Students who do not have the required high school qualifications for admission to this degree, or do not meet their UCAS conditional offer, may be considered for our Electronic Engineering foundation year, which offers students who meet progression requirements a pathway to year one of BEng Computer Systems Engineering.
International students who may not have had the chance to study A-level-equivalent qualifications may qualify for our one-year International Science and Engineering Foundation Programme, commonly known as the ISEFP.
On successfully completing the ISEFP, and subject to meeting the progression requirements, you are guaranteed a place on your chosen degree programme at Queen Mary.
This degree can be taken with an optional Industrial Experience Year, spent working in a role related to your field of study. This is taken in your third year of studies. Past students have worked with companies including:

Please note that industrial placements are highly competitive and awarded based on 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 add an optional year abroad to your degree. Our School has a wide range of international partners all over the world. Find out more about study abroad opportunities at Queen Mary.
Please note - you can either do 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 advisor 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.
As a student, your home will be the Mile End campus. You'll spend lots of time in our ITL building, which is only used by Electronic Engineering and Computer Science students. This lab is made up of 300 fully networked multimedia workstations, which run both the Linux and Windows operating systems. The ITL is due to undergo a £5.8 million refurbishment, funded by the Office for Students.
A range of specialised equipment is also available in the Electronics Lab.
The labs are open seven days a week, generally between 8am and midnight. Students can also gain remote access to the School’s computing facilities 24-hours a day.
We have a number of students employed as 'module demonstrators', who are available in labs to help first and second-year students to navigate software and programming tools.
Alternative offers may be made to applicants taking the Extended Project Qualification.
