Course content

The programme is designed for engineering graduates with some computing background. The modules are a combination of software engineering and electrical engineering with an emphasis on technology and project management. Specification of software systems and system interconnectivity are addressed, whilst unifying the whole engineering process in systems engineering. This will especially suit those aspiring to project management and engineering management roles, and aims to address the complexities of systems and project management with dedicated modules.

We have over 100 years of experience teaching Engineering and have developed programmes which are current, and will give you the opportunity to develop your understanding and skills. With a large proportion of computer laboratory and other practical work you will reinforce the theories and practices learnt in the classroom with 'hands on' experience. Our programmes offer you the opportunity to study the advanced knowledge and theories required for systems engineering, project management and advanced engineering topics, and apply these to the practical work environment.
