There continues to be considerable demand for professionals in software engineering with a good background in the design behind hardware methods and systems. This programme, which has a broad focus and is set at a high technical level, produces graduates with the skills and knowledge to meet those needs.

During the programme, you will work, in approximately equal measure on both hardware and software, looking in detail at two programming languages. You will undertake some networking activity, but the main focus is on the design and development of software for specific hardware and for computer systems in general. Embedded and real-time systems development is a particular feature of the programme. Additionally, you will receive training in management and professional practice. All students can opt for a year in industry after their second year.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To develop knowledge and understanding of mathematical/scientific principles and methodology necessary in order for them to be applied to a number of computer hardware and software engineering problems and scenarios
  • To understand computer hardware and software engineering principles and have the ability to design, apply and analyse the key engineering processes which relate to these principles
  • To have the ability to identify, classify and describe the performance of hardware and software system components through the use of analytical method and modelling techniques
  • To have the understanding, knowledge and skill in order to investigate and define a computer hardware and software problem, as well as identify system constraints, including environmental and sustainability limitations, health and safety and project risk assessment issues.

English Language Requirements

IELTS take IELTS test
6

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advise you to

take an IELTS test.
