Course summary

Ranked among the top Computer Science (and Information Systems) departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017), our BEng Computers with Electronics combines the study of computers with electronics (particularly digital electronics). You share many modules with our BEng Computer Systems Engineering but also draw upon material from our electronics and telecommunications courses, without requiring A-level mathematics. You study computer hardware and software, operating systems, logic design and embedded systems. This degree is accredited by both the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the British Computer Society (BCS). These accreditations are increasingly sought by employers, and provide the first stage towards eventual professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).On this four year version of this course you can spend your third year on a placement with an external organisation, focusing on using the specialist technical skills acquired in the first two years of the course.
