This course gives students a strong theoretical background involving the future of electronics, microelectronics and computer systems, as well as covering practical aspects, making use of our facilities in electronics, sensors, computer systems, computer networks, signal processing and laboratories. It will provide students with a detailed technical knowledge of current practice in electronic and computer hardware and its applications.

About the Electronic and Computer Engineering Department at Brunel

Our undergraduate degrees have a common first year during which you will study all of the main specialisms. Based on your own personal learning experiences of these subjects, you will be able to re-evaluate your original degree choice at this level and switch to a related course if you want.
Our courses allow you to specialise so that you can match your studies to your own particular interest, or maintain a broad approach.

Is this course for me?

You must have engineering potential and be someone who is analytical, creative, logical, a problem solver, a realist, versatile and forward thinking. You should be interested in understanding about the big picture as well as becoming a specialist in your chosen area. Intellectual challenge is important to you, as is hands-on experience, and you want to work alongside other high achievers.

Maybe you know what engineering area you want to specialise in already and realise that a broad degree can provide you with an invaluable springboard to any number of careers. You dont want to limit your options. Maybe you are seeking a broad-based engineering degree to explore your interests and strengths in a variety of exciting fields, all of which are of crucial importance in todays world.

Aims

MEng Electronic and Computer Engineering aims to develop a strong theoretical background involving the future of electronics, microelectronics and computer systems. It also offers practical aspects, making use of our facilities in electronics, sensors, computer systems, computer networks, signal processing and laboratories. The need for systems engineers with knowledge and skills in electronic hardware and software co-design is a key requirement of the industry and for future technological systems progression. Engineers, technologists and designers are the architects and implementers of the technological revolution and are in very great demand throughout industry, commerce and the public sector.

This course focuses on producing well-educated, imaginative and professionally-trained engineers with the technical skill to work and research in the field of electronic engineering and computer systems engineering. Graduates will be able to design, integrate and develop technological solutions for the next generation of computer systems. The course will also address electronic, microelectronic and digital systems, embedded systems, computer engineering, computing and applications of the technology.

English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6 CAE score: (read more) Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever. 60 (Grade C) IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
