  • Academic title
    Embedded Systems with Management Studies PgDip/MSc
  • Course description
    By the end of the course, you will have developed the technical skills and professional attitudes needed to progress your career in this rapidly evolving and key technical sector.

    In response to the needs of the industry, this course is offered with a management studies option. This innovative new combined course will enable you to develop key business and management skills and is ideal for students with a background in IT/computing/Engineering who wish to specialise in the area of networking and data communications while also developing the broad skill set and knowledge needed to fast-track their career in leading and managing successful teams and projects.

    What will you study?
    You will develop a disciplined engineering approach to and sound practical skills in the specification, design, modelling and implementation of software and hardware for embedded systems. You will gain specialist knowledge in digital signal processing and processors, control systems, mechatronics and automation and research methods.

    You can then choose from a wide range of optional modules encompassing computing, engineering and digital media processing. It may also be possible for you to undertake a 'real-world' project in an industrial placement or work alongside the Faculties' research teams (eg digital imaging, industrial control, aerospace, wireless mutimedia and networking).

    Following the ‘with management studies’ route, you will learn the fundamentals of marketing, finance and/or managing people and organisations, which will set your technical knowledge in a management contex.
