Computer Systems Engineering
This Master's in Computer Systems Engineering exposes students to modern miniaturised and mobile computer systems and smart device technology, allowing them to acquire the complementary hardware and software knowledge and skills required for understanding and designing such systems.
Normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent (eg GPA of 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject. International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Master's courses.
Core courses: Digital signal processing; either networked systems or computer communications; human�computer interaction; software and requirements engineering; MSc project. Optional courses typically include: Advanced operating systems; artificial intelligence; computer architecture; digital communications 4; human centred security; information retrieval; internet technology; microwave and millimetre wave circuit design; optical communications; real time embedded programming; safety critical systems.
In addition to taught work and practical assignments students also complete a joint research project worth 60 credits in one of the laboratories in the schools. This extended project is an integral part of the MSc programme: many of these are linked to industry while others are related to research in either of the participating Schools.
