BSc Hons Computer Systems, Edinburgh

You’ll be taught and assessed by a variety of methods and it will vary between units. These methods are designed to promote in-depth learning and understanding of the subject. Vital to any in-house IT infrastructure, the specification and quality of your servers dictates the performance and usability of the many business systems and applications you rely on every single day. Where courses have an A Level maths requirement, it would be necessary for applicants to achieve a high mark in AP Calculus BC or SAT Math Level 2.

In year two you will engage and deepen your understanding of issues related to networking and relevant supporting technologies including security and databases. There is a strong focus on employability and you will develop an in-depth understanding of web and mobile application development. The Integrated Project module incorporates your knowledge learned in Year 1 and enables you to design, develop and evaluate a security application as part of a team. In year one you will develop fundamental core knowledge in networks and information systems. You will engage with underpinning principles of computing and networking technologies together with relevant areas of programming, mathematics, statistics and business. You will build practical experience within a dedicated Cisco networking lab which you will continue in your second year.

Please note the University cannot guarantee the availability of all modules listed and modules may be subject to change. For further information please refer to the terms and conditions at /termsandconditions. This module explores modern hardware and software infrastructures of data centres and servers, including services, maintenance, configuration and monitoring, virtualisation and performance and resilience. Networked smart environments and the deployment of Internet of Things are also considered.

  • These allow you to specialise in particular areas of knowledge that interest you.
  • The AI Institutes support foundational and translational research in AI technology and its application to vital sectors of the economy, as well as education and workforce development for the next generation of AI talent.
  • He has been involved in industrial projects, training schemes and outreach programs in the areas of embedded systems, media systems and VLSI including the development of a training programme for Siemens and linked training courses with the BBC.
  • From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience, and this is particularly the case as we continue to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Investments in advanced communications, networking, and broadband access ensured that millions of Americans could continue to work and access education and medical services.

Students who have studied the Tawjihiyah will need to complete a suitable Foundation Year. Students applying for Science or Engineering courses would generally be expected to have followed theNatuur en Techniekstream within the VWO and have taken theMaths Dcourse. Students taking the MARA Diploma will be considered for first year entry on a case by case basis.

Upper Secondary School Leaving Certificate Kotogakko Sotsugyo Shomeisho

In this module you will you conduct a research project exploring a specific topic in electronic engineering. The aim of this module is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge of electronic components and their use in circuits. As computer systems have reduced in size, and are increasingly mobile with more complex functionalities, they are now a fundamental component of smart device technology. This postgraduate programme is particularly suited to acquiring the complementary hardware and software knowledge and skills required for understanding and designing such systems. This Masters in Computer Systems Engineering provides an extensive introduction to state-of-the-art miniaturised and mobile computer systems and smart device technology. This allows you to acquire the complementary hardware and software knowledge and skills required to design and develop such systems.

Typical offers are based on an average of best 5 grade 12 courses in theGeneral High School Diplomaand offers typically range from80%-93%. TheCertificat d’Enseignement Secondaire Supérieur andDiploma van Secundair Onderwijs are both acceptable qualifications for direct entry into first year undergraduate courses. Where the 20 point marking scale is used, we would typically require marks between15/20and17/20.

Modelling dynamical systems from first principles via Newton’s, Kirchoff’s or other known physical laws is often challenging and costly, requiring substantial expertise. An alternative is offered through ‘system identification’ that takes observations of inputs and outputs from physical systems and infers or estimates a dynamical model directly. Mature entrants without formal qualifications will be considered on an individual basis.

Plagiarism, collusion and commissioning will be described as activities that undermine academic integrity, and the possible consequences of engaging in such activities will be described. Activities, with feedback, will provide you with opportunities to reflect and develop your understanding of academic integrity principles. Working in groups, you will carry out a project using methods and techniques that parallel industrial practice. You will look at digital logic in the context of combinational and sequential logic with discrete logic gate circuits and consider how their responses can be modelled in practice using Boolean algebra, truth tables, De Morgan’s theorem and Karnaugh maps. You will also become familiar with the professional team working attitudes and skills required to take projects from inception to the fabrication of a final product prototype. From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience, and this is particularly the case as we continue to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a year in industry after completing the second year of your study. This will help you gain work experience and enhance your employability after you graduate. You’ll be offered help and support to find and secure placement opportunities through various workshops and events organised by the Careers and Employability Service and the course team. Typically, you’ll be assigned into roles involving tasks related to software and/or hardware computer engineering. Our course aims to provide an exciting, enjoyable and rewarding learning experience, which will serve as a solid foundation for a successful professional engineering career and meet the current demand from employers. In this module you will develop an understanding of the scientific principles underpinning practical signal processing.
