About Computer Science and Cybernetics at University of Reading

We offer two MEng programmes in Computer Science and Cybernetics; one is the 'straight' four-year programme (GHK6); the other is the Applied version (GHL6) and offers a fourth year in industry.
Both programmes are enhanced degrees based on the standard BSc programmes. Computer applications are studied not only in more depth but also in more breadth and a significant amount of time is dedicated to an individual Final Year project. The study of the core theory of Cybernetics and Computing principles remains the same.
