Computer Systems Engineering (wth placement) University of Bath

Undergraduate

Combine electronic engineering expertise with advanced knowledge of computer hardware and software skills to develop the computer systems of tomorrow.

Our course prepares you for a career in an advancing field at the interface of engineering and computing. You'll gain in-depth knowledge of modern computer systems, software engineering, computer graphics and embedded programming to become a systems-level expert.

Learning the foundations of electronic, electrical and computer principles gives you a broad understanding of the subject. Later in your degree, you can specialise in an area of choice with units including embedded electronic systems, computational intelligence or electronic design.

Working with the latest digital technology, you'll design systems such as embedded microprocessors in modern mobile devices or high-performing computers. You'll learn how to use industry standard programming and hardware design languages, operating systems and applications. Group and individual projects give you the technical, business and management skills to solve engineering problems relevant to industry.
