About this course

Most of the world's computers are embedded computers - computers that are hidden within cars, appliances, digital cameras, MP3 players, phones and other devices. Electrical and Computer engineering is concerned with the design and management of computer-based systems, including embedded systems and more conventional computers such as personal computers (PCs) and personal digital assistants (PDAs). Electrical and Computer engineers have skills and knowledge in digital logic design, computer networks, embedded and desktop operating systems, microcontroller selection and programming, electronics, telecommunications and signal processing.

This major builds on the first three years of the BE (Electrical & Computer) which progresses through a broad foundation of preparatory courses in engineering, mathematics, software engineering and physics, followed by more advanced coursework and laboratory training, where engineering analysis and design techniques are applied to computer systems and real world problems.
