Computer technology, telecommunications and consumer electronics are rapidly evolving, so experts in these fields are in great demand. This degree is based on leading-edge research and has been designed with strong industrial input.
In your first and second years, you are introduced to a wide range of computing and engineering modules. You can study the theoretical background of digital technologies, communications principles and object-oriented programming, and take modules in robotics, computer interfacing and engineering mathematics.
The third year allows you to specialise in a particular topic of interest. This could include computer networks and communication, computer security and cryptography, digital signal processing, digital control, digital systems design and embedded computer systems.
The final year of the MEng degree brings your engineering skills up to an advanced level, providing a broad knowledge of business perspectives and extra opportunities for group project work.
All years include project work that replicates industrial practice to maximise the employability of our graduates.
The degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), on behalf of the Engineering Council and it fully satisfies the educational requirements for becoming a Chartered Engineer.
