About this course
We can show you how to use your problem-solving skills to their full potential in our Computer Hardware and Software Engineering BEng.
The use of computer technology is now pervasive within modern day society – crucial in electrical devices as diverse as tablets to traffic lights, air conditioning to air traffic control. As potential uses of technology grow, so too does the demand for developers and software engineers capable of designing and implementing such applications.
Fully endorsed by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this course enables you to register with the Engineering Council as an Incorporated Engineer on completion. It provides a broad technical education in the hardware and software aspects of computer systems engineering and applications development.
You’ll have access to facilities, placement opportunities at companies which have previously included the National Grid, GlaxoSmithKline, Severn Trent Water and Mercedes Benz and an annual programme of inspiring lectures on contemporary engineering and computing topics presented by the IET and British Computer Society (BCS).
