BEng (Hons) Extended
Students who successfully complete the courses can transfer to other programmes within the university at the end of the initial year. This must be agreed with your tutor and the relevant admissions tutor. Students follow one of three pathways. This determines the type of programme they may study in subsequent years. Again it should be noted that this can have an impact on your loan entitlement. The programme provides you with a well-structured, relevant, enjoyable learning experience to enhance student satisfaction, motivation and progression. You will develop these skills by us equipping you with an awareness of the computer engineering professions to enable informed choice of educational and career paths. This is achieved by developing your interpersonal and multi-disciplinary team-working skills intending to facilitating effective participation in engineering project planning, management, design, and implementation. As well as developing your appreciation of the relevance of mathematics, to the computer engineering disciplines and develop fundamental knowledge and skills enabling you to produce concise solutions to fundamental engineering mathematical problems.
Modular Structure for Extended Programme
The Computer Network Engineering Extended degree is a four-year programme. With a standard progression, the later 3 years will follow the BEng Hons degree programmes as explained in G620M. If an alternative career path is chosen then students can apply internally to programmes offered by the University of Greenwich, this can impact on funding and students should consider this very carefully. The initial year is very project focused on the following modules Engineering Project Design and Implementation, Professional and Personal Development and IT Essentials.
