What do 3D TV, digital cameras, smart phones, the iPad and sports instant replay have in common? They're all examples of technology which have been developed combining skills from both Computer Science and Electronic Engineering. These subjects have become increasingly intertwined in recent years, so there is a need for engineers with the ability to create and embed intelligence into the products and systems of the future.
Engineers with operational and technical expertise in both electronics and software engineering are needed to design the next generation of computer apps, interactive vehicle robotic agents that monitor driver information and respond accordingly, or digital cinema technology. This Computer and Electronic Systems degree at the University of Strathclyde is designed to produce these skilled professional engineers.
We have very high student satisfaction and graduate employment rates, and offer an extensive industry-supported scholarship programme.
Employability of graduates from these degrees is one of the highest of all disciplines.
With skills including numeracy, problem-solving, IT, critical thinking and analysis, they are able to choose from a wide range of professional career options. The degree's triple accreditation ensures that they have the technical expertise and skills in both electronics and software engineering to compete for jobs on an equal footing with computer scientists and electronic engineers.
They gain hardware and software jobs such as design engineers, systems analysts, electronics engineers and IT specialists in sectors including:
