This programme will not have a 2016 intake as the content is being extensively improved.
Microcontrollers are being designed into more and more products e.g. motor cars, washing machines, mobile phones etc. The fast growing and challenging area of embedded systems requires engineers with hardware and software design capabilities for use in this variety of situations. This advanced programme of study offers a natural progression route for graduates in electrical and electronic engineering, physics, computer science, or related disciplines, and is structured to provide the student with the necessary skills for embedded systems development.
Aims and Objectives
To provide knowledge of electronic systems design based around microcontrollers To provide the ability to manage new technologies and integrate them into system design To satisfy the growing demand for engineers with embedded systems experience To facilitate professional development of the student that will lead to a successful professional career
MSc in Embedded Systems is for students who wish to study a programme to engage them in system development and design focussing on microcontrollers, both hardware and software. It will provide advanced knowledge in areas essential for this type of design and development, whilst also providing learning in areas closely associated to embedded systems such as control and communications.
The course conforms to the standard University of Hull structure, consisting of two taught semesters (the Diploma stage) followed by a substantial individual project. Core modules are compulsory; choice of optional modules is based on student preferences.
