Computer Systems Engineering with Industrial Experience

Course summary

Technology is transforming our lives. Combine computing skills and engineering expertise to build the future. Technology is continuing to evolve and rapid developments and digitisation are changing life as we know it. Learn to design the innovative systems behind these developments while examining how they collect and process information.  You could study just computer science or electronic engineering, but by studying a programme that is a 50/50 split, you’ll be able to choose from a wider range of career opportunities.   Our expert teaching team cover the foundations of computer software and hardware, with modules in everything from programming and circuit design to operating systems and signals.  In our Electronics Lab and Informatics Teaching Lab, you’ll get practical experience with digital circuit design, embedded systems and various software development tools. These form the foundation of computer systems, the internet and the applications that run on it. You’ll also learn about intelligent systems, which have a range of applications, from vehicles to smart cities.  Uncover your interests You’ll have the chance to complete two practical projects. In your second year, you’ll team up with other students on an engineering project, which will be software-based. Then in your final year, you’ll work on a hardware or software-based project focused on your interests.  Not only will you graduate with a range of sought-after skills, but you’ll also have built a strong personal brand, thanks to our MySkills initiative within the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. Get ready to impress employers and secure a role where you can put your knowledge into action.  This programme will be reviewed for re-accreditation by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in December 2023. This review is expected to result in accreditation for the 2024 and 2025 intakes. Accreditation can only be granted after a successful review and is subject to approval by the IET’s Academic Accreditation Committee.
