    Course Summary

    The University of East Anglia’s Computer Systems Engineering BSc (with Industrial Placement) is ideal for students who already have a great deal of expertise with digital technology, but want to make the leap from ‘expert user’, ‘programmer’ or ‘technician’ to become a fully trained Computer Systems Engineer.

    This degree program includes a year in industrial placement. Not only does this allow you to develop real world experience as a Computer Systems Engineer, it is an excellent opportunity to build commercial and industry contacts, which could be vital to your later career.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This is a 4 year program for most students, including your year in placement.

    Year 1:

    Your first year in the University of East Anglia’s Computer Systems BEng program will be spent studying Computer Science, Programming and those aspects of Mathematics which you will need to make the most of later modules in the program.

    Year 2:

    In year 2, you’ll build on the core competencies you developed in year one, but you will also explore more advanced subjects like hardware architecture and computer networking systems, as well as electronics more generally.

    Year 3 (Placement):

    Your third year will be spent in an arranged 9-12 month paid placement in a company appropriate to your interests and special talents. UEA has a wide network of industry contacts and alumni, and will help you to find a placement that suits your intellectual and career needs very well.

    Year 4:

    In your final year you’ll complete an independent Computer Systems Engineering project dealing with your specialty in particular. You will also take several highly advanced modules, both core and elective.

    Learning & Teaching

    The UEA teaches Computer Systems Engineering using lecture classes, smaller seminars and highly focused laboratory exercises. You’ll gain experience with the hardware and software development tools the industries of today actually use, and of course your placement year will make you familiar with the work of engineering in the real world.

    Career Possiblities

    Many UEA Computer Systems Engineering graduates find positions as Programmers and Coders, as Communications Systems Designers, as Instrumentation and Control Engineers, as Management Designers in the Automotive Industry and as Embedded Systems Developers, just to name a few. Others have turned the readily transferrable skills they’ve learned into careers in accountancy, finance or management.
