  • Course description

    This advanced course of study will offer an academic progression route for graduates in electrical and electronic engineering, control systems, computer science or related disciplines. The focal point of the course will be the fast-growing and challenging area of embedded systems.

    This is a rapidly expanding area of modern technology, and its impact and potential are increasingly evident in devices used in commerce and industry. There are expanding applications with enhanced features for end users in industry, instrumentation, health care, services, entertainment, science and robotics. The course will offer a range of skills and knowledge of immediate relevance to industry.

    Although the primary focus of the curriculum is on the needs of recent graduates, the course is also suitable for more experienced engineers, who require a postgraduate programme to enhance their technical and managerial education. The industrial relevance of the course curriculum is of prime importance. The course offers some flexibility in the subjects studied whilst retaining coherence.

    You are able to select options in technical and management subjects and may also select master's level modules from any postgraduate scheme within the University, provided that the module outcomes are relevant to the role of an engineer or technical manager.
