About

This Masters in Computer Systems Engineering at the University of Glasgow exposes students to state-of-the-art miniaturised and mobile computer systems and smart device technology, allowing them to acquire the complementary hardware and software knowledge and skills required for understanding and designing such systems.

Why this programme
  • With 95% overall student satisfaction in Electronic & Electrical Engineering and 97% in Computing Science (National Student Survey 2014), both Schools continue to combine both teaching excellence and a supportive learning environment.
  • You will be taught jointly by the Schools of Engineering and Computing Science. You will benefit from their combined resources and expertise and from an industry-focused curriculum.
  • The University of Glasgow’s discipline of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is ranked 4th in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2015).
  • If you are a computer engineering graduate, this programme will enhance your knowledge; if you are an electronic engineering graduate you can focus on developing your software skills; or if you are computer science graduate you can focus on developing your hardware skills.

Academic Requirements

Entry requirements

Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent (eg GPA of 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified. A sound understanding of programme relevant core engineering principles, such as mathematics, is expected and must be demonstrated in a 2.1 or equivalent in core subject components from your Honours degree. Additionally we look for students to have studied approximately 1/3 electronics modules in their previous degree and also a computing science module which ensures that students are proficient with an object oriented programming language (C++ or similar).

International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.

StudyPortals Tip: Students should consider taking one of the Pre-Master's below. these courses will be necessary if:
