The syllabus of the 1st year of MEI is structured as follows:

UCE30 | ECTS | Regime | Hours |

Option 1 | 30 | Annual (4 modules + project) | 10 hours per week (5 T + 3,5 TP + 1,5 P) |

Option 2 | 30 | Annual (4 modules + project) | 10 hours per week (5 T + 3,5 TP + 1,5 P) |

A 30-ECTS Specialised Curricular Unit (UCE30) constitutes a coherent educational proposal in a specific specialisation area, embodying three aspects (foundations, technologies and applications) and integrating a transversal project.

Option 1 and Option 2 are UCE30s that can be selected from a collection of 13 alternatives.

Day of the week | Acronyms | Specialised Curricular Unit (UCE30) |

Monday | ACS | Software Analysis and Design |

EL | Language Engineering | |

SD | Distributed Systems | |

Tuesday | CPD | Parallel and Distributed Computing |

CSSI | Cryptography and Information Systems Security | |

EA | Applications Engineering | |

SI | Intelligent Systems | |

Thursday | CG | Computer Graphics |

ERC | Communication Services and Ubiquitous Systems | |

MFES | Formal Methods in Software Engineering | |

Friday | Bio | Bioinformatics |

ESCSU | Computer Network Engineering | |

SSD | Decision Support Systems |

Each UCE30 has a limited number of available positions, which is fixed every year by the direction board of MEI. In previous years, the number was set between 20 and 25 students. Despite the fact that all optional UCE30s are expected to open, restrictions on available labs and rooms and the overlapping of timetables do not allow all possible combinations of pairs of UCE30s to be selected by the students. Each UCE30 is scheduled for the period 8:00-19:00
