Computer Science (Embedded Systems)
Embedded systems offer constraints and limitations that demand a great level of ingenuity and creativity. As such, developing software for these embedded systems presents a variety of new challenges and requires a more specialised set of skills than developing general computer applications. This MSc course will provide you with such skills. It focuses on low-level software development across a range of different hardware platforms, including autonomous devices such as robots, parallel processing units, and distributed computing environments. You will have the opportunity to work with the latest technology in the field, including 3D printers, flying drones, and our own fleet of robots. The course also benefits from our world-class research in this field, including areas of image recognition, robot navigation, and distributed processing. The course is suitable for graduates of computer systems, computer science, electronics, or telecommunications (with software development experience). The standard course lasts twelve months and consists of two trimesters of taught modules, followed by an individual dissertation project during the third trimester. There is an option to take an extra trimester - immediately before the dissertation - gaining industrial experience through a module based in SEED, our software development unit working with commercial clients and software. This is unique to Hull. The Department of Computer Science creates an excellent experience for students, with a supportive student community. We have an international reputation for our research activities, with a strong record of industrial and public grant funding. We are also affiliated with Microsoft's DreamSpark programme, which allows you to access the latest Microsoft operating systems and development software for home use. Once registered with the department, you can download the software free of charge.
