Electronics and computers are all around us and developments in both can have a big impact in our daily lives. 'Invisible computers' help to operate everyday equipment like supermarket scanners, central heating timers and car management systems. This course has been designed to help you understand how electronics and computers work together, and could help you meet the ever-increasing demand for new technologies.
The aim of the course is to develop your understanding of computer systems architectures, networks, and the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is a network of physical objects (devices, vehicles, buildings etc) which are embedded with electronics, software and sensors, enabling them to collect and exchange data. We'll look at software and hardware and how they are designed for embedded systems. And you'll have the chance to understand the principles of electronic engineering and develop the skills to be able to work in a wide range of industries.
The course also covers other areas of electrical, electronic and communication engineering. It's accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. That means you could become a registered Incorporated Engineer (IEng) if you graduate, and following further learning you could also be on your way to becoming a registered Chartered Engineer (CEng).
After your second year you'll be given the chance to take a year's placement working in industry. It could be the ideal opportunity to develop your skills even further to help you when you apply for a job after graduating.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!
