Course outline

Master of Engineering in Embedded System

  • A coursework based course

Embedded systems are single purpose computers that normally perform very specific tasks only with emphasise on cost, power and speed. Since tight integration of application specific hardware and software are required, embedded systems require formal design techniques. They are fast becoming essential equipment/products in many industries including automotive, manufacturing, medical, telecom, banking, digital consumer, agriculture and even defence and aerospace. The programme is designed to introduce a range of topics that will prepare its graduates to embark on the embedded system business.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs):

  • PEO1: To produce graduates who are able to design and apply embedded systems. 
  • PEO2: To produce graduates who will be leaders in driving innovation in embedded system applications. 
  • PEO3: To produce graduates who are able to conduct research in embedded systems. 

Programme Outcomes:

1. Possess the passion for acquiring knowledge and skill in embedded systems 

Graduates are exposed to a solid foundation in embedded system to ease the process of acquiring new knowledge or new development in embedded system.

2. Able to design and develop embedded systems (hardware, peripherals and firmware)

A working prototype requires intimate knowledge and technical details of the hardware, peripherals and operating systems being selected.

3. Able to demonstrate embedded system applications 

In order to contribute to the embedded system industry, graduates must be able to demonstrate practical and marketable applications.

4. Possess analytical and problem solving skills

Literature search is a basic research skill. This skill is enhanced throughout this course through searching database such as IEEExplore, ScienceDirect, Google Scholar, and others. From the literature search, students are able to understand the current research state of a particular topic in the field of embedded system. They are able to analyze and formulate new technical problems to be explored and to be solved.

5. Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in lifelong learning and development 

To create the awareness of the importance of continuous self-improvement and lifelong learning is by exposing the students to new and emerging technology, through the core and elective subjects. The students' experience via working in the industry and coupled with knowledge gained in the course will allow them to venture into a new and exciting career path. As technology changes rapidly, and for the students to be competitive, they will need to continuously educate and update themselves.
