Computer systems engineering is a growing market in today’s computer industry. Embedded systems have become widespread in industry and can be found in almost all modern consumer devices, from washing machines to cars.
This BSc Computer Systems Engineering (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster will equip you with necessary knowledge and engineering skills related to modern day computer and embedded microprocessors, as well as embracing their structure, design and efficient operation.
The course aims to provide an enjoyable learning experience which will serve as a solid intellectual basis for a professional engineering career in embedded systems, systems-based programming and related fields.
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.
The programme aims to create graduates who are well prepared for entry into a career in not only the engineering industries but also in any field requiring engineering skills. With an industry-wide shortage, high quality engineering graduates are enjoying a choice of job opportunities with good salaries.
The course provides an exciting, enjoyable and rewarding learning experience which will serve as a solid foundation for a professional engineering career leading eventually to registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
This course is accredited by the Engineering Council and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), enabling you, as a graduate, to become a Chartered Engineer after a period of professional experience and, in the case of this BEng award, further study to MEng level.
