Program Description

MEng/ BEng (Hons)/ BEng (Hons) Extended Engineering for Intelligent Systems

University of Greenwich

The digital world is changing from a world of computers to a world of connected smart devices and intelligent systems embedded in the environment, commonly described as the Internet of Things. The future of technology is increasingly focused on bringing the virtual world into the real world through innovations such as Google Glass and smart watches. At the same time, there are hardware advances such as robots that can vacuum your floors, walk, dance, and even climb stairs. Developments in sensing technology allow people to play with games consoles by simply waving their arms. These trends will gain pace as technology moves away from the keyboard and screen to become truly embedded in the environment around you. The move towards smart interconnected devices is going to be as revolutionary as the advent of personal computing, but will only be successful if companies can combine the traditional disciplines of computing and engineering to develop a new generation of intelligent systems that are designed to integrate together seamlessly.

The first year of all of our engineering degree programmes at the University of Greenwich focuses on the understanding of engineering science fundamental principles. This approach ensures that all of our graduates experience a solid foundation of broad technical knowledge and a working understanding of all the major Engineering disciplines – an essential prerequisite for a successful career in engineering management. At the end of the 1st year, students will be invited to choose to either continue on their initial degree programme or to swap to any of the other engineering degree programmes on offer. We feel it is very important that our students are empowered to be able to choose the degree programmes that are most appropriate for their ambitions and goals and we recognise that those may change during your studies with us as you learn more about each discipline. Engineering at the University of Greenwich. Quality. Industry. Rigour.

Who is this course for?

Students on this degree programme will typically be those who are interested in new technologies and devices and who want careers developing exciting new products that bring together electrical, electronic, computing and mechanical engineering. They will be intrigued by the technical challenges and possibilities of embedding intelligence into everyday objects in the environment to develop wholly new technological solutions to everyday life. These new technologies have to be scalable, secure, user-centred and fun to use and represent an exciting design and development opportunity. If you have ever thought, “They should design a device that …” then this is the degree programme for you.
