About Computer Systems Engineering at School of Computing and Engineering, University of Huddersfield

Entry RequirementsEntry requirements for this course are normally one of the following: 220-260 points from 6/12-unit awards, including Mathematics A level. MMP from National Diploma in relevant subject plus Mathematics GCSE. Successful completion of Engineering Foundation Year. Introduction In modern life, computer systems are everywhere: from home entertainment systems and mobile phones through to communication networks, automotive and avionic control systems and industrial process control. Computer systems range from those based on programmable logic controllers or microcontrollers through to intelligent systems. Self-contained computer chips, such as microcontrollers, are most common in embedded systems where they are hidden in electronic products. The sustained growth in this field of engineering is reflected in an ever increasing demand for computer systems engineers across a wide range of industrial and commercial organisations. The multi-disciplinary role of a computer systems engineer requires in-depth knowledge and skills in software programming techniques, computer systems architectures and electronics. You will develop hardware and software skills and the knowledge necessary to design and implement computer systems. The integrative approach we take to the core aspects of computer science and electronic engineering will help in this development.Course StructureYear 1Modelling and Prototyping Professional Development Writing Software Hardware and Networks Electronics 1 Mathematics 1Year 2Enterprise Relational Databases and Web Integration Embedded Systems Algorithms Processes and Data Operating Systems and Network Security Electronics 2Year 3 sandwich Optional Industrial PlacementYear 3 full-time/Year 4 sandwich Individual Project Real-Time Systems and Communication Computer Clusters and Grids Advanced Embedded Systems Digital System IntegrationTeaching and AssessmentTeaching, learning and assessment of knowledge, understanding and design principles are developed through lectures, worked example sessions and tutorials.
