The foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to explore new ideas, opening up new perspectives on the key debates within your chosen field. During the foundation year you will explore a range of creative disciplines and get a chance to develop in your chosen field, benefiting from workshops in our high end facilities and working with leading academics who will encourage you to become a confident and creative thinker. Core modules accelerate your academic and professional development and you will also take modules within your chosen field, giving you the chance to develop a cross-disciplinary perspective on your course. On successful completion of the foundation year, you'll be able to progress onto the Software Engineering with Electronics BEng Honours where you'll study for a further three years. Our new Software Engineering with Electronics BEng is designed for students who wish to enter the world of computer systems engineering, where a mix of hardware and software skills is highly advantageous in today’s job market. The course will teach the physical realities and use of real-world electronic components, interfaces and systems in addition to developing the core skills required to write efficient secure code for machines and devices. Jobs traditionally associated with software engineering or electronic engineering have changed significantly due to a number of reasons, including the increasing universal use of smart digital technologies. Today, engineers that can develop novel solutions using both software and hardware technologies are increasingly in demand across all industries. Successful completion of our course will allow you to do just this! Our Software Engineering with Electronics BEng is focused on the implementation and programming of the underlying hardware and system layer that all computer systems run on, whether they are an Internet of Things (IoT) smart sensing device, an autonomous robot, a gaming system, a smart home hub or a medical imaging machine. Through the course, you’ll develop and put into practice essential practical and theoretical hardware engineering know-how in addition to supporting software skills. With these skills and knowledge, you’ll be able to develop intelligent products that will sense and monitor properties of the real-world, develop sustainable engineering solutions or control hardware in a safe, sustainable, timely and power efficient manner. Our practical Software Engineering and Electronics BEng will provide you with hands-on activities, including laboratory skill development sessions and work-based industry-inspired design projects.
