The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

Embedded system technology is underlying the ever more capable electronic and computing systems that we use in our daily lives, ranging from cars and mobile telephones to washing machines and aeroplanes. This major growth area has a large and increasing industry demand for engineers and computer scientists who possess in-depth expertise in embedded systems, so our course equips you with the advanced knowledge and skills to work in all aspects of this area.

Our MSc Embedded Systems means you develop practical skills in the design, programming and interfacing of embedded processors, as well as an understanding of current applications, technological trends and their potential impact on systems of the future. We have an international reputation for research in this field, so maintain well equipped laboratories through our links with industrial partners. This enables us to offer you instruction in a wide range of topics including (but not restricted to) hardware/software co-design, task oriented programming, systems integration, middleware, networking, human computer interfaces, embedded agents, and the embedded internet.

Course Content

A Masters course is an academically rigorous programme during which you explore your subject in depth, reaching a high level of specialist knowledge. You draw on knowledge and skills from your undergraduate study or your professional life to produce work of a high academic standard, informed by current thinking and debate.
A Masters course lasts for twelve months (full-time), starting in October, and consists of taught modules during your autumn and spring terms, and normally a research-based dissertation or other project-based work submitted in September. Your balance of modules and research varies according to the subject but, typically, your research counts for 60 credits and there are 120 credits of modules, varying from 10 to 40 credits each. (If you are from the EU, then our Masters courses are regarded as ‘second-cycle’ qualifications under the Bologna Declaration and consist of 90 ECTS credits).
Please note that module information on our course finder provides a guide to course content and may be subject to review on an annual basis.

English Language Requirements

IELTS take IELTS test
6

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

Requirements for Embedded Systems

Upper second class honours degree, or equivalent, in relevant subject area.

IELTS 6.0.

Work Experience for Embedded Systems

No work experience is required.
