A candidate for the MEng in Radar is required to complete core courses totalling 120 credits and a 60 credit minor dissertation.
Each course will typically contain a lecture component of five full days, followed by weekly seminars, tasks and a written examination, over a five-week period after the first, intensive lecture session. The programme is designed to support students that cannot be resident in Cape Town for the full duration to complete all courses, by using distance learning techniques during the follow-up period after each course (after the one week intensive lecture period). All students will, however, have to be present in Cape Town for the one week lecture period for each course. Elements of continuous assessment (problem sets, short projects) and a written examination are utilised to assess the course.
