For GG14, in addition to one of the 40 credit point project units, you must take 40 credit points of Computer Science options and 40 credit points of Mathematics options, all at level three. The programme director can approve exceptions to the level three rule, and can also approve other units (e.g. from the Engineering Maths or Electrical Engineering departments) to replace either CS or Maths options.

For GG1K, you must take one of the two 20 credit project units, bearing in mind that the opposite topic must be chosen next year. In total, including the project, you should choose 60 credits of units from each department, all at level three. The programme director can approve exceptions to the level three rule, and can also approve other units (e.g. from the Engineering Maths or Electrical Engineering departments) to replace either CS or Maths options.

You must take a 40 credit point project either in Mathematics or in Computer Science. This needs to be chosen so that over the third and fourth years you have taken one project in Mathematics and one project in Computer Science. In addition, you should choose 40 credit points of level M units from each department. The programme director can approve exceptions to the level M rule, but normally you need to take 120 credits at level M over the third and fourth years. The programme director can approve other units (e.g. from the Engineering Maths or Electrical Engineering departments) to replace either CS or Maths options.
