BEng FT Computer Systems Engineering with Industrial Experience

H163 BENG HONS 4 Years

Overview

This unique programme include the digital circuit design elements of the electronic engineering programmes but also emphasise computer systems and software. It also focus on the increasingly important areas of artificial intelligence and network computing, internet protocols and applications.

Beyond these core themes there is an opportunity to specialise by selecting from optional modules. These include Security (developing firewalls, secure e-commerce transactions and anti-fraud technology), data processing (including data mining, signal processing, and advanced databases), and Networking (enabling sensors, home appliances, entertainment and security systems to be networked to each other and the internet, creating the “internet of things”).

This sandwich degree combines academic study with a one-year industrial placement between your second and third years of study. Taking the Industrial Experience option as part of your degree gives you a route to develop real-world, practical problem solving skills in a professional context. This can give you an important edge in the graduate job market.

As a leading research School, we have excellent links with industry. We also employ dedicated staff to help you arrange your year in industry. We will provide you with additional training and support in developing professional skills such as interview techniques and CV writing to help you secure a good position.

The programmes prepare you for a wide range of careers related to the computing, internet and manufacturing industries.
