The Computer Systems Engineering degree is a practical hands-on course that allows you to combine the study of computing science with a potential focus on electronics. In addition, this particular course allows you to spend your third year engaged in an industrial placement, gaining relevant work experience. The flexibility of the degree programme allows you to either deepen your knowledge of computing systems or broaden it by studying wider elements, such as computer graphics or artificial intelligence.
The opportunity to take part in a year in industry makes for an invaluable addition to your scientific knowledge and technique. It increases your employability and gives you the chance to put your first two years of Computer Systems Engineering learning into practise.
During your academic studies you will be taught how computer hardware and software interact to form more complex systems, and how computer aided design (CAD) tools are used to manage this complexity.

Year In Industry
Completion of a Year in Industry programme will ensure you graduate with relevant work experience, putting you one step ahead of other students. This exciting degree programme provides you with this opportunity.
The School of Computing Sciences leads the university in utilizing its internationally recognized research commercially through SYS Consulting, its consulting company, and through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships. Many of the projects and coursework that you will take part in use data or scenarios that come from real industry and business applications, giving you effective practical experience that can be applied in a working environment.
Depending on which specialties you studied during your degree course, you will have the necessary skills to work in many application areas of computing science, from computer games development to computer systems engineering, and many more. Our students also use their technical and entrepreneurial skills to play influential roles in the creation of companies such as Travel Republic, Evoke systems, Fyfo and Shoretech systems.
