Bachelor of Engineering (with Honours) - BEng (Hon)
Our Electronic and Electrical Engineering (Computer Systems) BEng degree is a modern course that has been developed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to work and research in electronic and electrical engineering with specialisation in embedded systems. This programme will help to develop an understanding of the various engineering, scientific and economic tradeoffs necessary in the design and implementation of Embedded Systems, provide familiarity and experience with a range of architectural techniques, design methodologies and their applications and suitability for some Embedded Systems such as FPGAs and help to understand the utilisation and principles of reconfigurable computing.
You’ll gain a good understanding of the different engineering areas, giving you the opportunity to learn more about the fundamental engineering subjects such as design, structures, materials, fluid mechanics, electronics and maths and gain skills in technical drawing.
By specialising in Computer Systems you’ll learn to design and implement computer systems based on scientific and economic trade-offs.
Access is available to modern technical facilities including computer, electronics, and power and control laboratories where you’ll work on your experiments. The latest industry standard engineering software packages are available for you to use in dedicated computer clusters.
Due to recent changes to the engineering curriculum, our accreditation for 2019 entry is currently being re-confirmed with The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). We have every expectation that our accreditation will be renewed later in the academic year.
The BEng degree meets the educational requirement to become an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). You may wish to transfer to the MEng route of study at the end of your second year, subject to meeting the progression requirement. The MEng degree fully meets the educational requirement to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and involves a further year of academic study.
We encourage the placement year option. This time in industry helps you to further prepare for the world of work and you’ll have a year’s worth of invaluable professional experience when you graduate. If you decide to go on an engineering placement year, you will have the opportunity to work in an engineering or technology company.
