Please read the detailed information on the Part IIB modules.

You are reminded that you must confirm your choices for Michaelmas Term modules by midnight on Wednesday of week 1.

Modules with coursework

Please read the detailed information on the Part IIB modules with coursework.

You must keep safe all your Part IIB coursework as you must submit it all for scrutiny by the examiners at the end of the Easter Term.

Procedures regarding IIB coursework hand in (Coursework Candidate Numbers)

All IIB coursework is marked anonymously, and each student is given an individual coursework candidate number (CCN).  It is your responsibility to enter your CCN onto the coversheet.  You will be able to access this number on COMET

Please ensure that your name does not appear anywhere on the coursework.


Each student must undertake a major individual design, research and/or computer project at a high technological level on a topic of practical relevance. A member of CUED staff will act as your project supervisor. Work on the project proceeds over the whole of the year and 3/7 of the credit at Part IIB is associated with the project and 4/7 with the module examinations or assessed coursework.

Plagiarism avoidance in projects

It is self-evident that research-based project work requires extensive discussion and cooperation with your supervisor and others.  However, all reports and presentations must document the individual work of the author, with specific reference being made to any material taken from another source (including concepts, theories, equations, figures, or computer code, whether published in the open literature or on websites, or unpublished work obtained by other means).  Failure to reference the work of others is cheating and will be penalised.

You must read the Department's information about plagiarism, cooperation & cheating.

Risk Assessement Briefing

All students are required to attend a talk by the Safety Officer on Wednesday 5 October, 2-3pm, in LT2.  No practical work may be undertaken before the risk assessment form has been seen by the Safety Office.

Part II careers talk

A 30 minute briefing entitled ‘the Careers Service - what can it do for you?’ will be held at 11.30 am on Wednesday 5 October in LT2 by Dr Harding of the Careers Service. All Part II students and staff are welcome to attend.

During Michaelmas, the Service has organised a range of careers information events and there will be evening presentations from approximately 160 organisations. Students should register with the Service. The careers information email service, CLICK, enables students to receive a weekly diary of events plus specific information on various employment/further study options. An email vacancy list for engineers can be accessed via CLICK.
