Overview

The Smart Computer Systems (Honours) programme at the University of Westminster will equip you with in-depth knowledge of the structure, design and efficient operation of smart computer system engineering, through a variety of embedded platforms, peripheral devices, associated operational, supervisory and networking software. 

The course is especially focused on the rapidly growing and changing technologies involving embedded systems, sensors, wireless networks and Internet-of-Things (IoT) ecosystems, and will help you meet the demand from employers for graduates with hardware and software engineering skills and know-how.

Career path

This program will develop students as engineers that will have skills to work in the areas of embedded systems, electronic engineering, and software engineering and so work for companies like BBC and BSkyB as well as electronics and technology giants such as BT, Nokia, British Aerospace, Philips and Mitsubishi, and to smaller private companies. 

Students also go on to work in the financial district in the City of London while others have started up their own businesses in manufacturing or consultancy. Opportunities also exist for postgraduate study leading to PhD qualifications.
