The Graduate Diploma in Computer Engineering is a one year, full-time programme and the mode of operation is based on the modular system. It consist of a taught component extending over two semesters, and comprises ten modules in total. Students who successfully complete the Graduate Diploma programme and achieve the Universitys required academic standard, may normally proceed to the Masters programme for a second year. The second year of the programme involves two taught modules (electives) per semester, and a research-based project work. The project is a major component of the Masters programme and spans the entire academic year i.e. the Autumn and Spring Semesters. The project presents a piece of significant original work with high analytical content and, as such, it is expected that the results will be disseminated through publication in the research literature.
