Bachelor of Information Technology (Honours) Computer Engineering

Embedded systems consist of “invisible” computer and related peripherals hidden inside a product which exists in almost every aspect of our lives. We use embedded systems in washing machines, cars, factory automation machines, security alarm systems, smartphones, satellites and many others. Ubiquitous computing and Internet of Things (IoT) are a future trend that greatly enhances our life due to the rapid advancement of embedded systems design technology. 

This programme is to produce graduates with skills in using sophisticated software design tools for designing electronic circuits and systems. It prepares students to excel in the discipline of embedded systems design and computing which shapes the future of information and communication technology. It emphasises the development of design skills and knowledge that integrates both hardware and software into a system with application in Digital Signal and Image Processing (as in camera and video), Intelligent System and Networking.
