  • Computer systems have a dramatic impact on the way we work and live with new technology developing every week.

    Modern digital electronics and computing systems and desirable gadgets are all pervasive in commerce, industry and the home. They form one of the most rapidly changing and influential technologies in modern society.

    To gain the competitive edge over its global rivals British industry and commerce needs trained computer systems engineers with skills in both hardware and software who can assess, contribute to, harness and influence the growth of information technology.

    The EECS course at Aston aims to meet this challenge by expanding the breadth and depth of our students’ knowledge in electronics, internet technology, computing, digital systems and software design and by encouraging the development of essential professional skills.

    You will gain a solid grounding in software engineering and computing systems which will be complemented by engineering expertise in digital electronics and telecommunications. The emphasis is on gaining a specialist and extremely valuable set of skills that form a bridge between the hardware and software specialist; to achieve this you will study computing and electronics with single honours students from the electronic engineering and computer science subject groups.
