Wireless communication and mobile computing are currently the largest growth sectors in electronics and are expected to continue growing in the future. The impact on the consumer market is widespread with new mobile phones and tablets continually under development. Wireless communications is pervasive and extending to many everyday objects including vehicles, personal health, entertainment systems and the internet of things (IoT). This one year full-time taught MSc integrates electronics, communications and computing from core principles to cutting-edge applications and provides you with valuable skills for future employment in this growth sector. One of the major features of the MSc is the teaching of embedded programming using ARM processors which are included in over 90% of all mobile phones. In addition to learning to program the processor during the group project, you will be involved in interfacing it to wireless nodes and sensors, and building real-world solutions to problems. We will provide you with your own development kit when you arrive. The programme content features: *Modules in computing (C and embedded programming), electronics, internet, mobile and data communications. *Specially designed modules to support recent developments in relevant technologies such as programming for embedded and mobile devices. *A 60 credit group project in which you will develop skills and knowledge that will prepare you for working in industry or undertaking further academic study. The project will involve the design and practical implementation of internet and wireless devices using ARM processors.
The MSc in Embedded Wireless Systems considers the subject at a systems level, bridging the interface between electronics, communications and computing. It is designed to provide students with a good theoretical background and practical design experience (including ARM programming).
2:1 degree with significant electronics and/or computing content. Will also consider applications from students with lower qualifications, particularly when the student has high marks in relevant modules and/or appropriate industrial experience.
