Employability is central to our degree provision and through this programme students will develop the necessary Computer Engineering skills to ensure a successful career in this industry. Programme delivery allows for students to concentrate in their chosen area depending on module choices, including computer hardware, software engineering, robotics and networks. This ensures that their studies are shaped to suit their career aspirations. We consider practical experience an important component of our students’ future employability. Through a number of modules, students have the opportunity to get hands-on, practical understanding and experience to enhance their skills. Industrial placements may also be available to broaden their practical work experience and to consolidate their learning, as well as establishing a professional network, which can provide them with a significant advantage in their early career development. Experienced Computer Engineers can find themselves employed as Solution Architects or System Architects who are considered amongst the 10 most well-paid jobs globally. Computer Engineering as well as its sub-specialisations are considered highly researched areas and fast evolving fields, therefore there are many opportunities for graduates to pursue a research related career.
