Electronic Engineering and Computer Science are both concerned with enhancing our experience of the world and shaping the convenience of our future in terms of solving problems and developing products and systems which will increase the accuracy, speed and quality of information sources and technology. These disciplines are closely linked and specifically interweave in the manufacture of equipment such as pocket computer products like mobile phones or e-books. Electronic Engineering and Computer Science encompasses not just the software aspects of computing but also the hardware. Knowing how the hardware works as well as the software enables the design of systems that incorporate both counterparts and presents an understanding of the whole process from writing software that works on a particular operating system to the communication of this operating system with the hardware. Combining these two disciplines at Exeter gives you an excellent grounding in both subject areas and prepares you for a wide range of careers in both or either fields. This cross-discipline study gives you the advantage of becoming a multi-skilled professional engineer with a thorough understanding of the concepts and techniques from other closely related areas that are likely to influence and affect your career, such as object oriented programming or artificial intelligence.
