The vast majority of modern computer system development is targeted at embedded, portable, household or industrial systems, such as mobile phones, tablets, set-top boxes, games consoles, car-building robots or in-vehicle entertainment. To develop such exciting new products, the embedded systems industry needs graduates having not just software skills, but also the expertise to design specific electronic solutions and their electrical connections to the outside world. Our Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering course will equip you with the digital electronic, microprocessor and software skills to design, build and integrate the technologies behind the products of the future. The IET and InstMC accredited MEng degree courses are aimed at the most ambitious of students who wish to develop highflying careers within different industrial sectors and to become the future leaders of industry in companies concerned with Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering. The MEng courses are the preferred route to achieving Chartered Engineer status. This course of four academic years allows high calibre students to develop their understanding of the role of Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering in the industrial context, over and beyond that of the BEng courses. Years 1 and 2 of the BEng and MEng courses are similar; from there on each course develops its own flavour and engineering emphasis and each student can further tailor their course with optional modules to suit personal preferences and aptitudes. In the third and fourth academic years, the MEng courses provide enhanced opportunities to study your chosen specialist subjects in depth. In addition, MEng students follow extra modules in business management and application of management theory, and are offered the chance to study a language.
Years 1 and 2: Areas studied include circuits, computer architecture, electronics electromagnetism, introduction to fpga, mathematics, programming and software design, signals and systems, and software engineering. Optional placement/study year: Salaried professional placement and/or overseas study. Years 4/5 Areas studied include advanced FPGAs, applying management theory, business management, digital interfacing and instrumentation, electronic system design with FPGA, embedded software development, group project, individual project, and real-time software engineering.
