University of Greenwich, London, United Kingdom
This programme has been designed for the professional applications engineer who requires a good background in the use of a number of computer software and hardware systems.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band : 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.

Description

Advertisement

This programme has been designed for the professional applications engineer who require a good background in the use of a variety of computer software and hardware systems.

This is a high-level technical programme, but one that concentrates on the applications typically used, rather than the design behind them. You will work, in approximately equal measure, on both hardware and software systems but also gain experience in the use of a number of software applications. You will undertake some networking activity, but the main focus is on the use of software for specific hardware and for computer systems in general. The use of embedded and real-time systems is a particular feature of the programme.

Additionally, you will be given training in management and professional practice and can opt for a year in industry between your second and final year.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To develop knowledge and understanding of mathematical/scientific principles and metholology necessary to support the application of key principles of computer hardware and software engineering problems and scenarios
  • To have the ability to apply quantitive methods and computer software relevant to computer hardware and software engineering principles in a multidisciplinary context
  • To have the ability to use the results of analysis to solve computer hardware and software system engineering problems, apply the relevant technology and implement the pertinent engineering processes.
