Embedded Systems and Sensors (873H1)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

This module will provide a wide-ranging introduction to embedded systems and sensors, using development tools and demonstrating how they can be applied to rapidly produce successful embedded and sensor designs.

If you are a non-engineering student you will be given full support, with a series of carefully constructed concepts and exercises which will start from basic principles and simple projects, and move towards more advanced system design.
