Course summary

This is a four-year programme that includes a year of foundational study and leads directly into the degree course. Our foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence, before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. This integrated degree in Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering will provide you with the skills needed to work with both software and hardware to design exciting electronic and computer-based systems. Embedded systems are ubiquitous in the modern world and their use will grow with the advent of the Internet of Things and the needs of Industry 4.0. You will gain a thorough grounding in electrical and electronic theory, signals and systems as well as computer programming. You will cover embedded system programming as well as networks and cyber security, addressing the professional and ethical considerations of digitisation. The skills you gain during the course will equip you for graduate roles in this expanding sector. The programme is industry focused, offering opportunities for industrial placements. This programme is seeking accreditation with the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. The course has been designed to meet the needs of accreditation and with a view to back dating the effective date to include all students who graduate from the programme. We offer this programme with two study options. You can choose four years full-time or five years full-time which would include a one-year professional placement before your final year that will give you hands-on experience in a real-life working environment. This sandwich year would give you practical skills that many employers seek, giving you a competitive edge upon graduation.
