Advanced Digital Systems (MSc)


Course Description

About the course

This programme will enable you to develop strong design skills for the seamless integration of software and hardware subsystems and the emphasis will be on software-hardware co-design methodologies. These design skills will be developed by studying a range of specialist processor architectures and acceleration mechanisms. You will be taught by experienced research and teaching staff with expertise in this field and you will be learning about the latest theories, techniques and technologies. You will need an understanding of both generic and domain-specific research techniques, and the ability to apply them in your own work.

A module in research methods enables you to develop these techniques, moving from generic skills, such as the design and evaluation of experiments, to focus on the specific skills that you will need for your own project. An important outcome of the module is a well-structured report augmented by the use of appropriate artefacts and media, presenting your proposals for your specialist project. In the first two semesters of the programme you take modules exploring a variety of current research topics in electronics and you may also choose elective modules to gain an up-to-date perspective on other fields within the discipline. You will be guided in your choices to ensure the integrity of the specialist programme you study.

At the end of the programme, you complete a project which enables you to demonstrate your understanding of the principles and concepts that you have learned and your ability to apply them to a substantial piece of development or investigative work.

Entry requirements

International qualifications will be considered on the basis of their equivalence to UK qualifications, typically guided by a resource such as the National Academic Recognition Information centre (NARIC). Candidates will be required to demonstrate a suitable level of proficiency in written and spoken English. An IELTS score of 6.0 (or equivalent) would typically be required from candidates whose first language is not English. Candidates who do not satisfy these requirements will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Careers

You will typically be employed in the design and implementation of advanced digital systems and networks in the communication and control industries. Within your area of expertise, you will be making independent design decisions on mission-critical systems.
