From desktop and workstation computers through to high performance computer systems, we aim to give you a thorough background in a wide range of areas. You’ll have the chance to find out what’s really involved in computer systems engineering. If you’re hoping to be a computer systems engineer, potential employers will be looking for you to understand software programming techniques, computer systems architecture and electronics. This course focuses on these three core aspects to give you the chance to build your knowledge and skills. You’ll be taught by professional engineers. Many of them have worked in the industry, and you can be confident that the course covers topics that the industry is looking for, as we regularly meet up with our Industry Advisory Panel to get their feedback. We want to give you as much practical experience as possible. So after your second year, you’ll have the chance to go on a year-long placement to put your skills into practice. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. When you finish your studies, you could become registered as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng), which could be a feather in your cap when you’re looking for your first exciting role in the industry. The course could also lead on to you gaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status following further study.
