About

The MEng Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering (Hons) from Loughborough University teaches you to combine digital electronics, microprocessors and software to develop and enable the potential of embedded computer systems.

Overview

By choosing to study in the MEng Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering (Hons) from Loughborough University you will gain a thorough understanding of electronic design, electronic fabrication, analogue and digital electronics, computer architecture and design, embedded system design, plus much more.

What's the difference between MEng and BEng?

The MEng Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering degree is aimed at the most ambitious of students who wish to develop high-flying careers within different industrial sectors and to become the future leaders of industry in companies concerned with the design, development and application of electronic and computing systems. The MEng course is the preferred route to achieving Chartered Engineer status.

The structure of the first two years are common between the BEng and MEng and provide you with engineering and electrical science core skills, combined with computer systems, programming modules and engineering management. The application of engineering and electrical science shared with the solution of industrial problems is a strong theme throughout the courses.

The MEng structure is distinct from the BEng course in the third and fourth academic years, providing enhanced opportunities to study your chosen specialist subjects in depth. In addition, MEng students follow extra modules in business management, application of management theory, and design and microprocessor control systems.

The MEng courses allow high calibre students to develop their understanding of the role of electronic and computer systems engineering in the industrial context, over and beyond that of the BEng courses.
