Study for a career in a growing and cutting-edge industry, in a department with a high league table position, excellent student satisfaction and employment rates, and strong links to business.
Most people aren't familiar with Embedded Systems, but we use them every day of our lives. Smartphones, digital TV, MP3s and iPods, washing machines, even toys or a talking greetings card they all contain a microprocessor or a microcontroller. Embedded systems are the backbone of the digital revolution.
As the complexity of embedded systems increases, the industry needs skilled graduates to fill the talent shortage.
In-depth knowledge at your fingertips
With the MSc Embedded Systems and Wireless Networks you'll develop a sound technical knowledge of the fundamentals of electronics, embedded systems, software and hardware, and become an embedded system designer with a multidisciplinary background. You'll develop software programming and hardware design skills, and a broad knowledge of electronics fundamentals.
Graduates of electronic engineering, systems engineering or other appropriate sciences can develop, deepen or update their skills and knowledge in advanced electronic engineering technology and cutting-edge research fields.
MSc Embedded Systems and Wireless Networks course is ideal for graduate engineers interested in electronics, embedded systems, signal processing, mobile communications and wireless technology.

Learning and Teaching
You'll be taught by experienced specialist academic staff who are experts in basic and advanced electronics, control systems, basic and advanced robotics, mobile communications, wireless sensor networks, embedded systems, power systems, power electronics, signal processing and sensor technology. Many of them are involved in cutting-edge research.
You'll attend lectures, then apply what you've learned to real life through tutorial sessions, case studies, classroom discussions, project work, laboratory exercises and visits to or guest lectures from professionals working in engineering organisations.
You'll have access to cross-disciplinary facilities that incorporate electronic, electrical or embedded computer systems. For example, robotic assembly cells, power distribution systems and motor drives, as well as subsonic and supersonic wind tunnels.
We host our own servers to provide Windows, Linux and Unix-based operating systems, and have over 500 workstations in our teaching laboratories. We also have a large open-access laboratory, providing PC and Unix-based machines. We have our own IT Helpdesk and there are 24-hour computer labs on campus.
