Embedded Intelligent Systems

This programme focuses on hardware and software integration methodologies together with the incorporation of modern neuro-fuzzy technologies, with the aim of developing systems that are able to improve their effectiveness through learning; such systems can include autonomous robots and media-processing-intensive PDAs; students study leading-edge applications such as biometric authentication and speech-based interaction.

Entry requirements

A 1st or 2nd Class degree in electronic engineering, computer engineering, or a closely related discipline. In addition, candidates should have been exposed to relevant material at undergraduate level to sufficient depth to enable them to benefit from their chosen MSc programme. International qualifications will be considered on the basis of their equivalence to UK qualifications, typically guided by a resource such as the National Academic Recognition Information centre (NARIC).
