Months of entry
An embedded system is an application that contains at least one programmable computer (typically in the form of a micro-controller or microprocessor) which is used by individuals who are, in the main, unaware that the system is computer based. Typical examples include common domestic appliances such as video recorders, microwave ovens and refrigerators as well as sophisticated aircraft and defence systems through to commercial road vehicles. This course will provide the knowledge and skill required of a Professional Engineer to design embedded systems for use in control and diagnostic monitoring.
