Course content

Embedded systems are computing devices that perform dedicated functions or are designed for use with specific embedded software applications.

Embedded systems engineering is a discipline which designs and implements hardware and software of embedded systems. They are crucial to mobile communications, Internet of things (IoT), household robots and video game consoles, to name a few. Engineers capable of designing and implementing embedded systems and devices for such applications are in demand all over the world.

This accredited course will provide you with the opportunity to develop practical skills and theoretical knowledge in embedded systems engineering, including embedded systems programming, embedded operating systems, and embedded hardware engineering as well as advanced electronics including Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) based digital system design, image and signal processing, digital communications, wireless intelligent systems, and robotics.

You’ll have access to modern facilities, as well as an annual programme of inspiring lectures on contemporary engineering and computing topics presented by the IET and British Computer Society (BCS) at no extra cost.
