Course content

Are you a hardware or embedded systems engineer? Are you looking to undertake a research level qualification whilst still doing your job?

The EngD in Computer Systems Engineering is tied into advanced processor technologies and embedded systems development in as well as advanced FPGA systems development. We work with a range of stake holders in cutting edge and industry relevant research that addresses real world challenges. If you already work on computer hardware or in embedded systems, or need training to make the move into this area of engineering then this EngD is for you. You'll spend 75-80% of your time with your company, working on 4-6 flexible but research level projects. The remainder you'll spend with us training in Advanced processor topics, while being guided by your academic supervisor building on your industrial work and solving it's associated research problems.

An EngD gives you a solid industry application focus and offers a range of flexible pathways of differing duration to suit your individual needs. The research conducted as part of the EngD is applied to specific problems faced by the industrial partner, each problem couched as a research challenge.

Throughout the programme, students can undertake a tailored range of Advanced Masters courses that supplement the in-built research skills training and development provided as standard in the EngD programme.

Academia and industry work together in mentoring and training the student, who will graduate with the academic rigour necessary to undertake applied research, with skills and experience to apply that research capability directly within industry.
