This Masters award concentrates on the commercially important and rapidly expanding area of embedded digital systems. It is the ideal choice if you plan a career in embedded systems engineering, or for professional development if you already work in the engineering industry.
Embedded systems are at the heart of many engineering devices and you will investigate how they are designed and implemented in hardware and software.You will learn how to understand and apply circuit and system simulation techniques, with an emphasis on products that incorporate embedded technology. You will also understand the design of embedded systems, including microcontroller architectures and real-time embedded hardware operating systems.
You will work on industrial case studies and be involved in ‘live’ mini-projects. If you are a part-time student working in the electronics industry, you may be able to relate your major project to an aspect of your company’s work. You will also be given the chance to undertake a six-month unpaid internship*.
*Internships are optional and are available to fulltime students only. Internship places are limited. Students have the opportunity to work in a participating UK company or within a Research Centre at the University.
