Comments about BEng Electronic Engineering and Computer Science - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire
This course is ideal for candidates who have a keen interest in both Electronic Engineering and Computer Programming. The first year of this the degree course is the same as BEng. in Electronic Engineering H610 and covers the basics of electrical engineering, engineering mathematics and computer programming. Year 2 deepens your knowledge in specific areas of electronic design, including embedded systems with emphasis on computer systems and software engineering. The final year allows you to broaden out into areas such as computer networking, image processing or robotics as well as further software engineering modules. There is an extensive use of design-based laboratory and project work to support the lectures. Management and business studies are taught and an option exists to take a modern foreign language in the final year.
There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
