This MSc has been designed to capture the essence of the rapidly developing fields of Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems. It is suitable for a computer science or electrical/electronic engineering graduate who wishes to specialise in the high-speed technology of embedded microelectronics and wireless systems including mobile communications.
As a leading university we are committed to the advancement of embedded microelectronic systems. Research in the University is carried out in several faculty research centres such as Transport & Mobility, Manufacturing & Material Engineering and Cogents Lab, where advances in fields associated with embedded microelectronics and wireless systems include designing real-time wireless networks, the application of systems modelling, statistical and artificial intelligence techniques.
WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
-Electrical and electronic research carried out in the Faculty is recognised as world-leading, 45% Internationally Excellent (RAE 2008)
-Excellent links with a number of industrial organisations enable access to the use of high-cost equipment for real-time investigations
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems curriculum consists of a fixed menu of study and a substantial MSc project. Successful completion of both parts leads to the award of MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems. Completion of the taught modules without a project leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.
The mandatory modules are as follows:
-Digital System Design with VHDL
-Object Orientated Programming
-Digital Signal and Image Processing
-Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics and Applications
-Embedded Operating Systems
-Wireless Intelligent Systems
Prospective students should be aware that most of the mandatory modules include an element of programming, usually in the C/C++ language.
HOW WILL THIS COURSE ENHANCE MY CAREER PROSPECTS?
Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems are now ever-present in all aspects of technological life for example automotive, biotechnology, communications fixed and mobile networks, information technology, industrial electronics process control, security, and computer technology.
So much so that there is a demand for top graduates in the fields of embedded microelectronics and wireless systems to work either in their development or in the vast number of industries that employ these technologies.
Opportunities also exist to complete a PhD research degree upon completion of the master’s course. More information can be found on our Research page.
GLOBAL LEADERS PROGRAMME
Centre for Global Engagement logoTo prepare students for the challenges of the global employment market and to strengthen and develop their broader personal and professional skills Coventry University
has developed a unique Global Leaders Programme.
The objectives of the programme, in which postgraduate and eligible undergraduate students can participate, is to provide practical career workshops and enable participants to experience different business cultures.
Entry to this course is possible from wide range of backgrounds, i.e. an honours degree in a science or technology subject, a relevant professional qualification, an unclassified degree in science or technology plus relevant professional experience.
