  • Course description
    Course description
    The average home contains around 200 embedded computing systems. We use them and rely on them, but what are they? The PC is a computing system, with which we interact through a keyboard, mouse and VDU. As users, we can program the PC and direct it to perform a whole range of applications. In an embedded computing system the microprocessor is integrated into the product and pre-programmed to carry out a dedicated control task.

    Engine management systems, MP3 players, mobile phones, audio signal processing and TV remote controls are all examples of embedded computer systems. The Electronic Systems Engineering programme equips you with the knowledge and skills to design such systems.

    You also spend a year in industry to develop your business, teamworking and transferable skills, all of which are sought after by graduate employers. Industrial experience will increase your awareness of the broad range of careers on offer and guide your choice of option subjects. Industrial placements can also be accredited by the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) towards the training required for attaining Chartered Engineer status.

    What our students say
    'Originally from Loughborough, where I studied electronics at the local college acquiring my ND and HND. I decided to go to university to further my knowledge in the subject, to become a chartered engineer and to move away from home. Manchester was the obvious choice for me due to recognition in industry worldwide and the fact the course is accredited by the IET. The subject so far has been interesting and has provided numerous challenges, such as teamwork in the embedded systems project. But university isn't just about work, although the workload is heavy sometimes; there still time to enjoy the lifestyle. And where better than Manchester, it's a great place to live. With it being a big city there's always something going on, there is never a reason not to feel part of Manchester and making it your second home.' - William
