Course Title: Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Computer Engineering in Mobile Systems

Holders of an appropriate Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Engineering or equivalent should apply to the CAO in the year for which admission is sought. Entry is subject to normal entry requirements.

There’s growing demand for graduates with a mix of hardware and software skills, needed for the expanding world of mobile systems and the Internet of Things, from sensors and electronic devices to app development and networks, and all the technology in between.

The use of mobile systems and the Internet as part of ICT has played a major part in the growth and transformation of technology-enabled devices such as specialised sensors and medical devices that sustain life, environmental monitoring, businesses, real-time and secure social interaction platforms.

Subjects covered include everything from Digital Electronics and Microprocessor Fundamentals to Computer-Aided Design, Web Technologies and Databases, Software Design, Computer Architecture, and Wireless and Mobile Networks. In Year 4, you’ll study more advanced subjects such as Linear Systems and Optimisation and Internet of Things Technologies. This course will develop your competencies in basic electronics and microprocessors; embedding computers into products, and developing software drivers to make them work. Close links with companies such as Intel, IBM and Cisco increase the career opportunities of graduates of this course.
