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.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 50 hours of contact time and about 100 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, there may be changes to this module in response to COVID-19, or due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

It may not be possible to take some module combinations due to timetabling constraints. The structure of some courses means that the modules you choose first may determine whether later modules are core or optional.
