Developed with input from industry, our Computer and Internet Engineering programmes offer an integrated training in communications (both hardware and software), and media and content delivery, developing the next generation of engineers for the internet age. Our programmes focus on the applications of computers, programming, big data and information for media and communications technologies.

Tomorrow’s connected world demands engineers with well-rounded training, spanning both electronics and cutting edge software for the internet age. Our Computer and Internet Engineering programmes are informed by our leading edge research in next generation mobile communications, audio-visual processing and Engineering for Health – with on-campus facilities including our 5G Innovation Centre and new £12.5m Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory. Our aim is to develop engineers with a firm grounding in electronics, plus the specialist skills needed to work at the forefront of mobile and internet technology.

After a common foundation year in programming and electronics you will go on to study advanced modules in topics such as mobile communications, digital signal processing and artificial intelligence.

The structure of our programmes follows clear educational aims that are tailored to each programme. These are all outlined in the programme specification documents which include further details such as the learning outcomes. Please be aware that these specifications are applicable to the current academic year.

Modules listed are indicative, reflecting the information available at the time of publication. Please note that modules may be subject to teaching availability and/or student demand.
