Course Introduction

**Why study this course?**

This career-focused course aims to equip you with the key skills needed to succeed as a well-rounded professional who is ready to work in cutting-edge computing and engineering sectors as computer engineers, robotic and intelligent systems developers, hardware designers, software developers or scientific programmers.

Designed to kick-start your career in the age of autonomous, intelligent and computer connected systems, the course puts emphasis on microprocessor and microcontroller-based computer systems design, development and programming. It also allows you to specialise in computer networking or distributed and internet systems.

One of the key strengths of the course is its practical nature, which will allow you to develop hands-on skills and expertise. The course is supported by a number of specialised laboratories in general electronics, microwave and satellite communications, computer aided design, embedded systems and digital systems, and opto-electronics. When studying any of our specialised modules you will spend a considerable part of the module in these laboratories, providing an opportunity to practise what you learn in your lectures and seminar sessions and (using an industry-standard simulation package) investigate, design, implement, test and document a variety of real-world examples of electronics and communications systems. These sessions are performed individually or as part of a group.

You will have opportunities to enhance the skills that employers in the industry are looking for and gain real experience through placements in real client-driven projects – working with business and industry through our work-related learning module. The course will also help you develop interpersonal, team working and engineering skills alongside commercial, ethical and environmental awareness.

As well as setting you up for a rewarding career, this course will also equip you to undertake postgraduate study such as a master's degree programmes or MPhil/PhD.
