This MSc concentrates on the commercially important and rapidly expanding area of embedded digital systems. It is the ideal choice if you plan a career in embedded systems engineering, or for professional development if you already work in the engineering industry.

Embedded systems are at the heart of many engineering devices and you will investigate how they are designed and implemented in hardware and software. You will learn how to critically understand and apply circuit and system simulation techniques, with an emphasis on products that incorporate embedded technology. You will also understand the design of embedded systems, including microcontroller architectures and real-time embedded hardware operating systems.

The course has significant input from industry and as part of the course you will be given the chance to undertake a 6-month unpaid internship*. Whilst not compulsory, internships provide the opportunity to put the theory you’ve learned in the classroom into practice in the real world.

Routes of study:
The course is available to study via two routes:
- MSc Embedded Systems Design (with internship)
- MSc Embedded Systems Design (without internship)

Please note: *Internships are available to full-time students only. Internship places are limited. Students have the opportunity to work in a participating UK company or within a Research Centre at the University. You can also opt to study the course without an internship which will reduce your course length.

See the website http://courses.southwales.ac.uk/courses/1492-msc-embedded-systems-design-with-internship

What you will study

Modules include:
- Embedded Systems Design
- Designing with RTOS
- Digital Design with HDLs
- Research Methodology and Product Management
- Opto-Electronics Devices for Life Science and Measurement
- Applied Digital Signal Processing
- * Six month Internship*
- Msc Major Project (60 credits)

Learning and teaching methods

MSc Embedded Systems Design is delivered in three major blocks that offer an intensive but flexible learning pattern, with two entry opportunities for applicants each year in February and September. You will learn to use the latest computer-aided engineering tools and techniques for the design, manufacture and testing of electronic products. There are six taught modules and an 18-week major project. If you study part-time, you will study three modules per year.

The course is available to study via two main routes, you can opt to add further value to your studies by undertaking an internship or simply focus on building your academic knowledge through a on-campus study as detailed below:


MSc Embedded Systems Design (with internship):

- Delivery: Full-time only | Start dates: September and February
If you choose to undertake an internship, your course will be delivered in four major blocks that offer an intensive but flexible learning pattern. Six taught modules are completed during two teaching blocks featuring 12 contact hours per week. This is followed by 6 month period of internship, after which the student returns to undertake a 16-week major research project. Please note: Course length may vary dependent on your chosen start date.


MSc Embedded Systems Design (without internship):

- Delivery: Full-time and Part-time | Start dates: September and February
The study pathway available without internship is available full-time and part-time. The full-time route is delivered in three major blocks. Six taught modules are completed during two teaching blocks featuring 12 contact hours per week followed by a 16-week major research project. The full-time course duration is about 12 months, if you study part-time then you will complete the course in three years. Part-time study involves completing three modules in each of the first two years and a major research project in the final year. The use of block-mode delivery in this way allows flexible entry and exit, and also enables practising engineers to attend a single module as a short course.

Work Experience and Employment Prospects

Many industries need specialists in embedded systems design, and by the time you graduate, your skills and knowledge will be highly desired by employers. Careers are available in industrial and technology sectors such as embedded systems hardware or software development, telecommunication implementations, instrumentation, general real-time device applications, and signal processing development.

Internship

Internships are only available to students studying full-time: Following successful completion of six taught modules, you will be competitively selected to join participating UK companies or University Research Centres on a six-month period of unpaid work placement before returning to undertake your major research project. All students who have an offer for the MSc Embedded Systems Design (with internship) are guaranteed an internship either in industry or in a University Research Centre.

There are 10 internship places available. Students who wish to undertake an internship must apply for the MSc Embedded Systems Design (with internship). It is anticipated that there will be significant demand for this programme and applicants are advised to apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Applications will be considered on a first come first served basis and the numbers of students offered a place on the programme with internship will be capped.

If the course is already full and we are unable to offer you a place on the Masters course with internship, we may be able to consider you for the standard MSc Embedded Systems Design (without internship) which is a shorter programme.

Assessment methods

Typically, each module will be assessed through coursework.

An MSc-level conversion programme for those with first degrees in numerate disciplines (e.g. Maths, Physics, others with some mathematics to pre-university level should enquire). The programme targets producing engineers with knowledge and skills required for designing the integrated circuits which lie at the core of the vast array of consumer electronics of today’s world. The demand for people to fill such roles is extremely high, in companies (small and large) covering the range of electronics and ICT products, and integrated circuit design companies that supply them.

Integrated circuits have been powering the information revolution for over 50 years. Continuous innovation has resulted in greater processing power, memory and new devices. This, together with ever reducing manufacturing costs and reliability, has enabled the mass production of integrated circuits for consumer products that are more powerful han the supercomputers of the 1980s. While the fabrication technology advances, there is an increasing need for innovative design which can harness the power of these circuits, while taking into account constraints such as requirements for energy efficiency.
