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. Modern communication devices, systems, and networks are expected to support a broad range of critical and essential services, incorporating computation, coordination, and intelligent decision-making. The resiliency of such systems, which subsumes security, adaptability, and autonomy, will be a key driving factor for future NextG—or Next Generation—network systems. You will study five advanced courses drawn from a wide range of our research and technical specialisms. You will also conduct a substantial individual project, on a topic of your choice or suggested by an academic, lasting the whole year. If you do not meet the entry requirements for this degree, have a look at Heriot-Watt Global College, where you can follow an accelerated pathway which will get you onto the second year of this degree.

Like all computers, embedded systems are subject to Moore’s Law, and are increasing in capability, year by year, thus increasing the opportunity for application management and control. The course will engage you imaginatively in the process of learning through creative hands-on group and individual project based activities, enabling you to develop your independent critical thinking and judgement. The aim of the module is to introduce the application of information, information systems and information technologies within organisations and understand the impact of such systems on organisational performance. Group and individual projects are an important part of your learning experience. They give you technical, business and management skills to solve engineering problems relevant to industry. You could explore areas including computer systems design and integration, or information systems and interfaces.

  • We recently invested over £70 million into developing the west side of campus where the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering is based.
  • Students applying for Science or Engineering courses would generally be expected to have followed the Sciences direction.
  • Being taught by someone who is changing the world with his or her ideas makes for exciting lectures and ensures you stay fully up to date.

If English is not your first language, you have to show that your English is good enough to succeed on your course. With Go Global, Heriot-Watt’s global student programme, you can carry your studies to new places and experience new cultures, expanding your horizons on the way. A broad range of IT services to ensure all your requirements are met smoothly and efficiently.

Academic profile

If a student does not satisfy the accreditation requirements but does satisfy the requirements for a standard QMUL BEng/MEng degree, the “EngC Pathway” suffix will not be added. In the final year, you’ll design and carry out an individual project based on your own interests and linked to current research areas within the schools. If the University discontinues any courses, it will use its best endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course. Fees illustrated are based on academic year 22/23 entry and are subject to an annual increase. This module addresses the various options involved in designing a computer system, the range of design considerations, and the trade-offs involved in the design process. The University employs over 1,000 suitably qualified and experienced academic staff – 59% have PhDs in their subject field and many have professional body recognition.

Pass with A in 200 credits in Mathematics including Mathematics 4 or 5 and A in 200 credits in a second science or technology subject plus A in a further 600 credits and B in a further 1000 credits. 9.0 overall with 90, 90, 90 in three state exams including Mathematics and one other science or technology subject. 5 in all subjects with 80% in Higher Mathematics and one other Higher science or technology subject. AA in A level Mathematics and a second science or technology subject, plus A in the IFS Diploma in Financial Studies.

Smart Computer Systems BEng Honours

Students will be introduced to the different types and applications of robotic systems. Sensing and actuation is also covered, with a focus on control of robot manipulators. Students will be exposed to a wide range of practical applications of robotic systems, and encouraged to discuss and reflect on the implications of using robots (e.g. ethical considerations, safety, social and economic impacts). This module will introduce students to the modelling and analysis of dynamic systems. Students will learn about the different types of physical systems based on real-world case-studies.

Indian qualifications

You’ll learn from academics with expertise in electronic and electrical engineering. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Where courses have specific subject requirements, a score of6or7would normally be required.
