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 on digital system design, image and signal processing, digital communications, wireless intelligent systems, and robotics 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. To name a few, they are crucial to mobile communications, Internet of Things (IoT), household robots and video game consoles.
- The course is designed for graduates with an electronics and computing background. It can provide a leading-edge MSc degree education in embedded systems engineering.
- The technical focus of the course concentrates on a combination of advanced electronics including FPGA based on 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 can strengthen the engineering development skills of students from an academic background. Such work can provide the demonstrable expertise necessary to help secure professional level employment in related industries.
- You will have the option to apply for a ‘professional work placement’ opportunity2, designed to further develop your skills and knowledge with the aim of maximising your employability prospects. See modules for more information.

This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which will could vary depending upon the module. Assessment methods include individual and group work, presentations, laboratory work, formal examinations, technical reports, in-class test, online quizzes, posters and computer simulation employing Simulink, Matlab, Multisim and PSCAD. The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the achieving the intended learning outcomes. Assessments may include exams, individual assignments or group work elements.
Applicants should hold a good honours degree 2:2 or above in a relevant academic discipline, such as a Science pr Technological subject. Applicants with a degree in another discipline or with relevant experience will be considered on an individual basis
