Explore the exciting space where electronic engineering meets computing to develop the computer systems our world needs now and in the future. Our course combines electronic engineering expertise with advanced knowledge of computer hardware and software skills. During your degree, you'll learn about modern computer systems, software engineering, artificial intelligence, and embedded programming. And you'll explore how you can use these in the context of a world and sector adapting to face the challenges of sustainability now and in the future. There is a lot of scope for creativity and problem solving in engineering and it's important to us that you can really explore the potential of your ideas. Working with the latest digital technology, you'll design systems such as embedded microprocessors and programmable integrated circuits. To make sure what you study is relevant beyond your degree, you'll also learn how to use industry standard programming and hardware design languages, operating systems and applications. The first two years of our four Computer Systems Engineering courses are the same. The units you'll study allow you to build on your technical knowledge to give you the skills and understanding of current challenges relevant to the workplace. These include areas such as engineering processes, professional practice, ethics, and sustainability. Because of the same course structures, you can move between BEng and MEng degrees and decide whether you want to take a professional placement year or not up until the end of your second year. Project work further develops your professional skills in teamwork, project management and self-management. It also allows you to flex your creativity and apply what you have learnt in a practical way. Through this mix of theory, technical work and professional skills, we aim to prepare you for a future in industry, research or whichever path you choose.
