A motivation letter must be added to your application.
Embedded systems are at the heart of many engineering devices and you
will investigate how they are designed and implemented in hardware and
software. You will learn how to critically understand and apply
circuit and system simulation techniques, with an emphasis on products
that incorporate embedded technology. You will also understand the
design of embedded systems, including microcontroller architectures
and real-time embedded hardware operating systems.
The MSc Embedded Systems Design degree involves an 18-week project,
which you may conduct in industry and could lead to job opportunities.
You can also complete industrial case studies and be involved in
‘live’ mini-projects. If you are a part-time student working in
the electronics industry, you may be able to relate your major project
to an aspect of your company’s work.
Possible Career Options
Many industries need specialists in embedded systems design and by
the time you graduate, your skills and knowledge will be highly
desired by employers. Careers are available in industrial and
technology sectors such as embedded systems hardware or software
development, telecommunications implementations, instrumentation,
general real-time device applications and signal processing
