MSci FT Computer Science


Info about me:
I am a current 2nd year student at Queen Mary studying BEng Computer Engineering (replaced with Electronic Engineering and Computing). I'll be honest right now, this piece will most likely to give off a strong negative vibe, but it will be my honest opinion on the experience from the department.

Modules taken so far:

2nd year
DCS234 Software Engineering Theory
ELE335 Digital Systems Design
ELE374 Signals and Systems
ELE595 Software Tools for Engineers
DCS225 Database Systems
ECS503U Internet Applications
ELE475 Microprocessor Systems Design
ELE490 Design and Build

First year
DCS104 Object-Oriented Programming
DCS100 Procedural Programming
ELE102 Introduction To Electronic Systems
ELE103 Telecommunications And Internet Fundamentals
DCS104 Object-Oriented Programming
DCS150 Fundamentals Of Web Technology
ELE104 Professional Applications
ELE202 Digital Circuit Design
MAE111 Electronic Engineering Maths


I'll try to provide feedback on the modules, some modules have changed since I had it or when you come.

MAE111 Electronic Engineering Maths
Probably one of the best modules you could do, the lecturer very good and concise.......it builds on your mathematics skills from A-level particularly FP1 and FP2 from futher maths modules. Though should clarify it isn't really "Engineering Maths", its just futher maths, questions aren't applied maths in engineering field at all, but is a nice module to learn. The coursework is very nice and exam isn't too hard.

ELE202 Digital Circuit Design


ELE102 Introduction To Electronic Systems (New name of course since my time)
This course teaches you the fundamentals of getting to understand and learning Electronics, you get a few hours of lecture a week along side 3 hours worth of lab work which counts towards your coursework whereby you are supposed to demonstrate what you learnt on a electrical board, etc.
However be very wary of the lecturer Dr Mondragon, he isn't the best lecturer at all, actually one of the worst you can expect, teaching methods are appalling, expect a lot of mistakes when it comes to examples on the board. The main book used, is itself quite confusing to be honest, but it is better to go through it then trying to understand it by Mondragon.

DCS104 Object-Oriented Programming
DCS100 Procedural Programming
ELE103 Telecommunications And Internet Fundamentals
DCS104 Object-Oriented Programming
DCS150 Fundamentals Of Web Technology
ELE104 Professional Applications

Lecturer isn't great in my opinion..........shouldn't be too bad, its basically mathematical stuff from physics and circurity, if you understand the concepts properly you can do well, I think a lot of the exam comes from the main textbox.

Basic java at first, then they move you on to object orientated programming.
There's a bit of website designing so HTML, SQL, Javascript, css.....

Depending on your exact course you may also do C++, GUI, more SQL, etc

I am currently learning C++. Would it be better to start with Java?

A bit similar, yes try learning the basics and then expand into object oriented programming

I am a bit confused now. Modules in EECS website and qmul website is different for Computer Systems Engineering. Which modules am I actually going to take?

I believe the QMUL is generalised, like "programming" whereas EECS is more detailed on the issue giving proper programming module names.

Within the department it is possible, though it is dependent which two courses.

Computer Science to Computer science and Maths. I was told by the department that maths and computer science was run by the computer science department.

Its both as its a 50/50 course if its the 'and' version, you'd have to switch the moment you get there or ask now...

I asked admissions about it they told as its after the 7th of may deadline they can't do anything and that its run by the computer science department only not the maths department, in that case would it be easy to transfer?

Unfortunately I cant, my question just is as maths and computer science admissions are just handled by the computer science department, which admissions told me they were, would that theoretically make it easier to transfer from computer science to maths and computer science?

Also are you doing a Beng or Meng?

Also would you say you have to be fairly good and programming to get a 1st would it be possible to get a first even if your not good at programming?

I am mathematically inclined taking both maths and further maths at A-level would be mathematical be helpful in doing well on the degree?

Yeah, in the first month people do drop out or transfer courses. Just go to the Computer science department to fill in a form and also check with the mathematics department after all that give it in and wait for a change to your course.

BEng.

Yeah, you'll learn the basics of programming, the majority of the programming is kind of easy, Object orientated programming will require more work...........jjust a heads up do remember the degree alone doesn't get you the job , you may get a first but if you got nothing else behind that then you wont be that good of a candidate for a graduate scheme.

What grade are you on track for if you don't mind me asking? Are you graduating this year?
