Computer Systems Engineering MEng

Unlike PCs and traditional desktop computers that are designed for multiple tasks, embedded computer systems often have a dedicated function or purpose within a larger electromechanical system, and are often small, rugged and low power. They use microprocessors and microcontrollers, and link to sensors and sensor systems. Electronic and computing systems engineers define the hardware, firmware, and software that enable and are implemented within these embedded computer systems. Students are required to undertake a major project during the final year of the course. The project module allows a selected topic area to be investigated in depth and for a solution to be developed in response. Within the project, the student is expected to integrate and apply material from other modules in the course.

You could also take part in a scheme for undergraduates where you work on research projects with academics over the summer period. In your final year, specialist modules cover topics ranging from intelligent systems and digital signal processing to system design and security. The University is dedicated to supporting ambitious and outstanding students and we offer a variety of scholarships to eligible undergraduate students, which cover all or part of your tuition fees.

Student Wellbeing

For example, the investments made in envisioning post-Moore computer systems will — in many cases — help advance our aspirations for AI and other research areas. As another example, investments in cyberinfrastructure can be instrumental to broadening participation in computing research by broadening access to who has the resources needed to translate their innovative ideas into research impact at scale. CISE’s holistic approach to research investments helps advance both the themes individually and in synergy with each other.

Please check that you meet our University-wide National 5/GCSE English and Maths requirements. Those entering at Year 2 are expected to be proficient in a high-level programming language;Javais our preference.

  • A score of 9 overall with 9 in Mathematics and one other science or technology subject.
  • Please see the Approved Qualifications table on the English Language page for further details.
  • Modules are informed by our world-leading research and designed with input from our industry partners, so you’ll have the best start for your career.
  • Mature entrants without formal qualifications will be considered on an individual basis.
  • This module addresses the various options involved in designing a computer system, the range of design considerations, and the trade-offs involved in the design process.

This module provides the foundation for continuing personal and professional development building confidence to provide students with the potential to maximise academic and career aspirations. For students taking theBrandos Atestatas, typical offers generally range from9.0–10.0overall. We would also typically ask for an average percentage from thebest 3 state examsbetween80%and94%. Where courses require specific subjects, we would typically require these to be taken as state exams. The Apolytirion is not accepted for direct entry to the University when studied on its own. However, we are happy to consider students taking the Apolytirion alongside either 1 or 2 A Levels.

For students who are from backgrounds or personal circumstances that mean they are generally less likely to go to university, you may be eligible for an alternative lower offer. In this module you will develop an understanding of modern techniques used in company management to tackle the challenges of the business sector. You will consider the role of codes of practice and industry standards, and examine relevant legal requirements governing engineering activities. This module introduces the full and holistic life cycle analysis in relation to electronic products and components, their environmental impact and sustainability.

Enhancing waste valorisation for a sustainable industry

Together with Prof. Bryant, he developed the course “Introduction to Computer Systems” that is the basis for this book. Prof. Bryant’s research concerns the design of software tools to help hardware designers verify the correctness of their systems. His research results are used by major computer manufacturers including Intel, Motorola, IBM, and Fujitsu. R. G. Baker Award and a Golden Jubilee Medal from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers . This book is for programmers who want to write faster and more reliable programs.

Learning and assessment

In particular, the underlying principles of the course are the development of creative skills in the context of proposing ingenious solutions to tomorrow’s problems prior to the prototype and product development stages. The Clan Gregor Society is offering an award to new entrants to the University of Glasgow who descend from Clan Gregor. Prospective students will be asked to submit an application highlighting areas of consideration such as academic excellence and financial need. Eligible full-time and part-time students, undertaking an eligible postgraduate course, can apply for a tuition fee loan up to a maximum of £5,500 towards their course.

Our requirements for the French Baccalaureate are the same for students studying the International Option Baccalaureate for this course. We accept this programme for direct entry and our requirements are the same as for a Canadian Secondary School Diploma. A score of 9 overall with 9 in Mathematics and one other science or technology subject.
