Course summary

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.
