Course content

The huge growth of processing power, now available in small power-efficient packages, has fuelled the digital revolution, which has touched all sectors of the economy. The Embedded Systems Engineering masters course is practically-oriented in the area of electronics design and applications and is distinctive in that it provides a strong digital technology core backup up with applications-led modules.

You may study applications as diverse as medical electronics and e-health, and a substantial element of practical work will give you confidence with software and digital hardware implementations using microcontrollers, FPGA, DSP devices and general system-on-chip methodology.

Course highlights

  • Our courses are shaped by our world-leading research, such as the ultrasonic embedded systems research led by Professor Steve Freear, where they are currently developing ultrasound systems for better imaging and cancer treatment.
  • During your studies, you will access specialist facilities and laboratories.
  • There are lots of opportunities for you to work alongside our academics and get involved in the research happening in the School.
  • Small groups and examples classes are used to support the teaching, so you get regular feedback from the academic staff helping you solve any problems that you might have with a particular topic.

Specialist facilities

Our School is an exciting and stimulating environment where you will learn from leading researchers in specialist teaching facilities with high-quality test and measurement equipment. These include our Keysight Technologies Electronics Laboratory and Arm Embedded Systems Laboratory. During your final project, you will be able to work in the NXP Electronics Project Laboratory. Depending on your project topic, you may also get to work in our specialist research laboratories.

Accreditation

The MSc is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Accreditation is the assurance that a university course meets the quality standards established by the profession for which it prepares its students. For this course, these are the quality standards set by the IET.
