Course summary

Overview

Embedded systems are computing devices that perform dedicated functions or are designed for use with specific embedded software applications.

Embedded systems engineering is a discipline which designs and implements hardware and software of embedded systems. They are crucial to mobile communications, Internet of things (IoT), household robots and video game consoles, to name a few. Engineers capable of designing and implementing embedded systems and devices for such applications are in demand all over the world.

This accredited course* will provide you with the opportunity to develop practical skills and theoretical knowledge in embedded systems engineering, including embedded systems programming, embedded operating systems, and embedded hardware engineering as well as advanced electronics including Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) based digital system design, image and signal processing, digital communications, wireless intelligent systems, and robotics.

You’ll have access to modern facilities, as well as an annual programme of inspiring lectures on contemporary engineering and computing topics presented by the IET and British Computer Society (BCS) at no extra cost subject to availablity

Work placement option

This master's programme provides you with the additional option to apply for a 'work placement' opportunity during your first semester with us. The 'work placement', which if secured, is designed to further develop your skills, knowledge and professional experience with the aim of maximising your employability prospects.

Course information

The course is designed for graduates with an electronics and computing background. It provides a leading edge MSc degree education in embedded systems engineering.

The technical focus of the course concentrates on a combination of advanced electronics including Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) based digital system design, image and signal processing, digital communications, wireless intelligent systems, and robotics as well as the subject specific knowledge in embedded systems including embedded systems programming, embedded operating systems, and embedded hardware engineering.

An emphasis on applied technical work will strengthen the engineering development skills of students from an academic background. Such work will provide the demonstrable expertise necessary to help secure professional level employment in related industries.
