Find out more about the TEF.

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 with a choice of units including embedded electronic systems, computational intelligence or electronic design.

Working with the latest digital technology, you'll design systems such as embedded microprocessors, programmable integrated circuits or high-performance computers. You'll learn how to use industry standard programming and hardware design languages, operating systems and applications.

Group and individual projects are an important part of your learning experience. They give you technical, business and management skills to solve engineering problems relevant to industry. You could explore areas including computer systems design and integration, or information systems and interfaces.

Our MEng degrees give you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work and fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.
