Course Description

This computer engineering course includes three years’ study at Bachelor’s level plus a further Master’s year. It’ll give you the knowledge and skills to pursue roles in ICT and computer engineering.

On our MEng Computer Engineering, you'll learn about theoretical programming and gain practical experience in developing and using applications for computing platforms and hardware. You'll have the opportunity to develop applications for robots, embedded and real-time systems, and other innovative information and communications technology.

The final year includes a Master's-level engineering project that will develop your teamwork and leadership skills. You will graduate with the knowledge and skills required for professional roles in computing, engineering and related specialist fields. You could also pursue postgraduate study.

  • Study in the only university in Kent to offer the full range of Engineering courses and 3000sqm of specialist labs
  •  Experience our research-led delivery from computer security to the Internet of Things.
  •  Be at the cutting edge of technology while setting future standards.
