Are you a keen problem-solver looking to learn new skills in computer engineering? Solent’s computer engineering postgraduate conversion degree is well-suited to students from non-computing backgrounds, helping you to learn new skills and develop advanced theoretical and practical proficiencies for a range of computing careers.

Solent University’s computer engineering master’s conversion degree exposes students to a wide range of both existing and emerging technologies and covers areas such as coding, software development, problem solving, computing, digital technologies and engineering.

Working with the latest technology, students on this course will also have the opportunity to learn to program robotic devices, and can learn to develop apps for Android devices. To test these apps, students have access to the University’s new device laboratory which is a special test area consisting of a range of mobile devices, allowing students to assess their website designs and apps on real equipment.

The course curriculum is developed with input from a variety of sources, including an industrial liaison panel, to ensure students are studying the latest technology and working practices employed by industry experts.
