Course summary

Coventry has a long tradition of teaching computing and electronics with a strong emphasis on its applications in practical situations. We have extensive industry links, collaborating with a broad range of commercial partners, many of whom may offer competitive placement opportunities to our students, as well as site visits and guest lectures. Please note that placement opportunities and site visits may be subject to additional costs, competitive application, availability and meeting applicable visa requirements.Meeting the educational requirements of the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC), the technical focus of the programme is intended to develop the practical skills expected of a professional computer system engineer or system administrator. As such, we concentrate on a number of core themes with an aim to develop a strong foundation of knowledge and expertise in: engineering mathematics; analogue and digital electronics; computer engineering, operating systems; computer networking and security and software engineering.We adopt an innovative Activity-Led learning (ALL) approach to learning, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to engage in both individual and team work on practical engineering projects. In the first stage ‘systems project’ module, for example, we have previously implemented an electronic design, providing specific design, simulation, building and testing challenges.You’ll be taught by staff with current teaching experience in the Higher Education sector and/or industry experience, many of whom are active researchers with expertise in electronics and computing. This can help to keep teaching up-to-date, keeping you abreast of new developments and issues, as well as providing opportunities for collaborative research projects. For example, past students have worked on industry inspired research projects, such as the development of an Android application, VeriMaster Mobile, for producing ABB flow meter calibration and verification reports and development of a robotic operating system (ROS).**Key Course Benefits*** Meets the full academic requirements for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) registration upon successful completion of the course. Further details can be found on the IET website.* 94% of computer hardware and software engineering students stated that staff were good at explaining things in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2019.* Well-equipped dedicated electronics laboratory and CISCO laboratory, featuring electronic development and testing equipment, networking devices, associated tools and software.* Regular free to attend expert guest lectures, which have previously covered topics such as 3D printer PCB design by RS Component, embedded development with ARM processors by ST Microelectronics and system security by IET members (subject to availability).
