In this electronic engineering programme you will investigate platforms for implementing advanced embedded systems in some of the most innovative fields of engineering, including digital signal processing and nanotechnology. These are typically 32-bit RISC processors, DSPs, FPGAs and configurable systems on chip technology.
These platforms may also incorporate the use of a real time operating system (RTOS). An important application area for advanced embedded systems is audio and image processing.
Subject areas are as follows: digital signal processing, mathematics, nanotechnology and electronics, operating systems programming, advanced embedded systems, operations management, programmable logic technology and electronic engineering project.
