B.Sc. Computer Systems and Software Engineering

School of Engineering, University of Greenwich

This programme has been designed for the professional applications engineer who requires a good background in the use of a number of computer software and hardware systems.

This is a high-level technical programme, but one that concentrates on the applications typically used, rather than the design behind them. Students work, in approximately equal measure, on both hardware and software systems but also gain experience in the use of a number of software applications. Students undertake some networking activity, but the main focus is on the use of software for specific hardware and for computer systems in general. The use of embedded and real-time systems is a particular feature of the programme.

Additionally, students are given training in management and professional practice and can opt for a year in industry between their second and final year.

Career options
Graduates can pursue careers as technologists or mathematicians at UK government institutions or at places in the aerospace industry that require knowledge of systems at the hardware and software level.

Applicants should have:

180 UCAS points FROM

EITHER A-levels, ideally from Computing/IT subjects

OR a National Diploma in engineering at MMP

PLUS at least 3 GCSEs at Grade C or above (including English, mathematics and science) or equivalent qualifcations.

Language skills
If English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your fluency in English before you can begin a programme. The main systems for measuring this are IELTS with a minimum score of 6.0 for degree programmes or TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 for degree programmes. Recently the TOEFL computer-based test has been abolished to make way for the introduction of the Internet-based test, gradually eliminating the traditional paper-based method. Other qualifications may be satisfactory. We can tell you what is acceptable.
