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

Entry RequirementsThe normal entry requirement for a Master's degree is an Honours degree or equivalent qualification in electronic engineering or related disciplines. Other qualifications and/or experience that demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at Honours degree standard may also be acceptable. The normal entry requirement for the postgraduate diploma course is a degree or equivalent qualification. A lower level qualification together with appropriate experience or, exceptionally, substantial industrial experience alone may also be acceptable.IntroductionThis advanced course of study will offer an academic progression route for graduates in electrical and electronic engineering, control systems, computer science or related disciplines. The focal point of the course will be the fast-growing and challenging area of embedded systems. This is a rapidly expanding area of modern technology, and its impact and potential are increasingly evident in devices used in commerce and industry. There are expanding applications with enhanced features for end users in industry, instrumentation, health care, services, entertainment, science and robotics. The course will offer a range of skills and knowledge of immediate relevance to industry. Although the primary focus of the curriculum is on the needs of recent graduates, the course is also suitable for more experienced engineers, who require a postgraduate programme to enhance their technical and managerial education. The industrial relevance of the course curriculum is of prime importance. The course offers some flexibility in the subjects studied whilst retaining coherence. You are able to select options in technical and management subjects and may also select Master's level modules from other postgraduate schemes within the Schoo of Computing and Engineering, provided that the module outcomes are relevant to the course.Course StructureYou may complete the course in one year by full-time attendance. In exceptional circumstances we can extend it over a period of part-time study to suit students and their employers. The postgraduate diploma (PgDip) and MSc both require the satisfactory completion of 105 credits, forming the taught part of the course. In addition, the MSc requires the satisfactory completion of a major project worth 75 credits. All modules are worth 15 credits each unless noted otherwise and include: Core modules: Embedded Systems (30) Embedded Controllers Option modules: Digital Design (recommended) Virtual Instrumentation (recommended) Real-time Systems Project Management (recommended) Software Development Methods Research Project Random Signal Analysis Total Quality Engineering Personal Development Human Computer InteractionTeaching and AssessmentYou will be taught through structured lectures, tutorials and practical laboratory-based sessions. For the practical sessions, you will work in the our modern embedded systems laboratory which is equipped with the latest development tools and software design packages and an electronics lab for manufacturing boards with surface mount components. The student centred delivery of the course allows you to take greater control of your learning through on-line learning material and exercises, the Internet and by interactive demonstrations. You will be assessed through a mix of examinations, reports on laboratory experiments, laboratory-based assignments and projects.Career OpportunitiesCareer opportunities for embedded systems engineers are numerous and are rapidly expanding into a variety of large and small organisations. Master's graduates are equipped with theoretical knowledge and practical design skills to open up new career opportunities and be valuable assets to their employers.
