Course summary

Computer systems are all around us from home entertainment packages and mobile phones through to car control systems, agriculture, retail, and complex communication networks. If you want to work in an industry that has the potential to improve everyday life and the society we live in, working and designing components that effect all aspects of society, our course aims to give you the skills you need for a career in this thriving industry sector. During the course we’ll introduce you to a range of computer systems and you’ll investigate the nature of computer systems engineering. From desktop and workstation computers through to high performance computer systems, we aim to give you a thorough background in a wide range of areas. You’ll have the chance to find out what’s really involved in computer systems engineering. If you’re hoping to be a computer systems engineer, potential employers will be looking for you to understand: * Software programming techniques * Computer systems architecture * Electronics This course focuses on these three core aspects to give you the chance to build your knowledge and skills. You’ll be taught by professional engineers, many of whom have worked in the industry, and you can be confident that the course covers topics that the industry is looking for, as we regularly meet up with our Industry Advisory Panel to get their feedback. We want to give you as much practical experience as possible. So after your second year, you’ll have the chance to go on a year-long placement to put your skills into practice. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. When you finish your studies, you could become registered as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng), which could be a feather in your cap when you’re looking for your first exciting role in the industry. The course could also lead on to you gaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status following further study. The teaching team here at Huddersfield has a wealth of industry and professional experience and are also active researchers, with many at the forefront of their research field. We support our students in gaining the skills valued by industry, and inspire them to be enquiring and experimental. Our aim is that you graduate fully prepared for either work or further study depending on your ambitions. With that in mind you'll have access to industry standard facilities in a supportive environment. ~ Professor Nigel Schofield, Subject Area Leader, Electronic and Electrical Engineering.Professional links and accreditation: This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) (http://www.theiet.org/) and fully meets the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) (https://www.imeche.org/membership-registration/become-a-member/incorporated-engineer), and partly meets the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). The IET is one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community and IET accreditation is recognised around the world as an indicator of quality. Our relationship with the IET means that they feel our course content is relevant to the needs of industry, which could give you a potential advantage when looking for a job as employers may ask for graduates with accredited degrees. This accreditation is reviewed on a regular basis.
