Embedded system technology underlies the ever more capable electronic and computing systems that we use in our daily lives, ranging from cars and mobile telephones to washing machines and aeroplanes.
This major growth area has a large and increasing industry demand for engineers and computer scientists who possess in-depth expertise in embedded systems, and our course equips you with the advanced knowledge and skills to work in all aspects of this area.
You develop practical skills in the design, programming and interfacing of embedded processors, as well as an understanding of current applications, technological trends and their potential impact on systems of the future. We have an international reputation for research in this field, so maintain well equipped laboratories through our links with industrial partners.
This enables us to offer you instruction in a wide range of topics including:
Hardware/software co-design Task-oriented programming Systems integration Middleware Networking Human-computer interfaces Embedded agents and the embedded internet
We are ranked Top 10 in the UK in the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities, with more than two-thirds of our research rated ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent (REF 2014).
This course is also available on a part-time basis. Professional accreditation
