Course summary

This four-year MEng course will develop your engineering skills in computer software and hardware. The key difference between this and a computer science degree is the focus on engineering systems: electromechanical design, robotics and computer programming for embedded systems.Modules are informed by our world-leading research and designed with input from our industry partners, so you'll have the best start for your career. You'll use industry-standard equipment and learn about state-of-the-art applications in infrastructure, medicine and aviation.Our courses share a common first year. You'll study subjects that are fundamental to computer systems such as mathematics, computing, control, electronics, software and embedded systems.In the first year, you'll learn how to control robotic systems and you will work as part of a team to design, analyse and test robots, autonomous vehicles and other complex electro-mechanical systems.In your second year, core modules cover subjects such as programming (including C++, Python and Java), mathematics and data modelling, signals, systems and communications. You'll apply your skills to a practical project, where you'll design a system using 3D CAD tools. You'll then build the system in our iForge makerspace. This innovative facility gives you access to 3D printers, laser cutters and more.In your third year, specialist modules cover topics ranging from intelligent systems, machine learning and digital signal processing to system design and cybersecurity. You can tailor your degree to suit your interests with optional modules.The highlight of your final year is an advanced project. Working individually with one of our world-leading academics, you'll deepen your technical knowledge and develop your expertise in a range of engineering techniques and skills such as project management and communication. You'll also study real-time embedded systems while choosing from advanced topics such as deep learning, agent-based modelling and multi-agent systems and cybersecurity.Other options for you:-You could switch to the version of this degree with a year in industry.-You can choose to study a year abroad.The content of this course is under review and there might be some changes before you start. We'll publish an up-to-date course description soon.**This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institute of Measurement and Control and the Engineering Council UK.**
