Module Semester With effect from
CG1111 1 AY2017/18
CG1112 2 AY2017/18
CG2023 2 AY2017/18
CG3207 1 AY2011/12


CEG students from AY2018/19 intake to AY2020/21 intake may apply for a Minor in Data Engineering at the end of their second year/fourth semester.

CEG students from AY2017/18 intake to AY2020/21 intake may apply for a Specialisation in Internet of Things (IoT), or Specialisation in Robotics at the end of their second year/fourth semester.

Following a change in modular requirements for AY2019/20 intake and AY2020/21 intake, CEG students who are enrolled/keen in any Second Major programmes or Minor programmes should refer to the respective Host's webpages for the requirements.

CEG students from AY2017/18 intake and AY2018/19 intake who are enrolled in

    • Second Major in Business Analytics (BZA) may double-count 16 MCs consisting of CS1010, CS2040C, ST2334 and BT4221 (if taken)
    • BZA Minor (Restricted) may double-count 8 MCs consisting of CS1010 and BT4221 (if taken).
      [Note: BT4221 can count as CEG TE Depth ONLY for students graduating with Second Major/Minor in BZA.]
    • Second Major in Systems Engineering may double-count 16 MCs consisting of CS2113T, ST2334, IE3110R (if taken) and IE4243 (if taken).
      [Note: IE3110R can count as CEG TE Breadth while IE4243 can count as CEG TE Depth, ONLY for students graduating with SE Major.]
    • Minor in Financial Mathematics should take/pass MA1102R, MA1508E, ST2334, MA3269, QF3101 and ST3131. MA1508E and ST2334 will double-count. Note: MA1511 (2 MCs) has a preclusion with MA1505, so Minor host advised affected students to read MA1102R.


1 : Students should read CS2113T Software Engineering & Object-Oriented Programming and CS2101 Effective Communication for Computing Professionals (twinned modules) in the same semester.
The following groups of students will take CS2113 instead because:
- USP students may read UWC2101% in lieu of CS2101,
- RVRC students may read ES1601 in lieu of CS2101,
- Students who qualify to read the advanced ES1501% Critical Thinking and Expository Writing, may read the module in lieu of CS2101.

Note: UTCP students are (still) required to read CS2101 (and CS2113T).

2 : CEG students pursuing a double degree with Mathematics/Applied Mathematics, or Second Major in Mathematics/Statistics will take ST2131 Probability, in place of ST2334.

These students should take ST2132 Mathematical Statistics as a core module in the Second Major in Statistics programme and are strongly encouraged to take ST2132 as an elective in the double degree with Mathematics/Applied Mathematics and Second Major in Mathematics programmes.

If a student has already taken ST2131 but later decides to withdraw from the Second Major in Mathematics/Statistics, he/she will still have to take ST2132 to fulfil BEng (CEG) degree requirements (before the eighth semester, so as not to delay his/her graduation).

Following a change in modular requirements for AY2019/20 and AY2020/21 intakes, affected CEG students pursuing a Second Major in Mathematics/Statistics will still read ST2334.
