Course description

The Computer Systems Engineering programme delivers a degree course that will equip you with the knowledge and skills to develop computer-based systems with real-time response. Sophisticated electronic systems permeate all aspects of life. Typical examples include MP3 players, games consoles, mobile phones, vehicle control systems and radar. All of these are embedded systems, which typically contain one or more microprocessors, memory, a communications capability, application-specific hardware and software. Consequently a wide range of knowledge and skills are needed to support their development, including digital electronics, software engineering, computer architecture, and digital signal processing.

Fees

Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2018 will be £9,250. Future inflationary increases may also be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Tuition fees for international students will be £22,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.

Scholarships/sponsorships

All new UK/EU (home tuition fee) students, applying for first year entry, who achieve an A*A*A (A* in mathematics) or equivalent will be awarded the Kilburn Entry Scholarship worth £1,000.

Well qualified international students will be considered for the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences International Excellence Undergraduate Scholarships.  For further details please see   EPS International Excellence Undergraduate Scholarships  .
