Edith Cowan University ECU

Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems) Honours

Edith Cowan University ECU

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00279B

Computer systems engineering requires in-depth knowledge of digital and analogue electronic systems along with a detailed understanding of computer architecture, software design and hardware-software interfacing. Graduates of this course will be conversant with all aspects of computing from the development and application of individual microprocessors, to the design of personal, mainframe or supercomputer systems, as well as real-time and embedded systems implementation, robotics, and software engineering. The program focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will gain strong analytical skills, and have the ability to lead complex projects. The course provides a sound basis in mathematics, and in the fundamentals of electronics and engineering design principles in the first two years of study, along with relevant computer technology and programming principles. In the final two years of study, advanced topics from both the electronics and computer systems engineering fields are covered including software engineering, data networks and communication systems, digital signal processing, real-time embedded systems, industrial control, and robotics to prepare students to enter their chosen profession with relevant knowledge and skills. The first year of this course includes a set of eight units that are common across all engineering honours courses. This allows students the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the various engineering disciplines on offer and the flexibility, if desired, to switch to another engineering discipline/course without penalty after the first year of study.
