The Software Engineering Program (3648) has been recently revised.

SE Electives (24 uoc)
Note: semesters have not been shown in the above. Courses do not have to be taken in a particular semester, or even a particular year. The only constraint is satisfaction of prerequisites. However, for the first year of enrolment in the revised program clearly the first year should be enrolled as specified, except for moving courses between semesters.
The implementation of the revision will be staged:
* 2012 Year 1 only, that is new students entering SE
* 2013 Remainder of revised program
The intention is to reduce the impact of the revision on existing SE students as much as possible. Students who commenced before 2012 should be able to contnue in the old program unless they have not completed all courses in years 1 & 2, in which case they may have to move partly to the new program.
Note: courses that have been deleted in the revision may not be included in concurrent programs involving SE.
Some students get very confused over program revisions. They feel that the program in which they are currently enrolled has been changed underneath them. The important point to remeber is that at any stage you are enrolled in the program in which you initially enrolled. That remains true after a revision, as far as possible. If courseshave been discontinued then substitutions will need to be defined.
Consider the current revision in the light of the above principle:
course deletions: these only define the new program, they do not affect previous programs, provided the courses have not been cancelled:
course additions, changes: while the above principle makes it clear that these changes do not normally affect students enrolled in the old version, sometimes parts of the revised program can be used to advantage for students enrolled in an old program.
Courses deleted from the program may be used --if desired-- as free electives in the BE SE program, but must not be used in any concurrent programs.
