BSc Hons Computer Systems, Edinburgh

In this module you will develop an understanding of computer and network security. You will look at software vulnerabilities, hands-on hacking-oriented attacks, memory errors, and web and network security. You will learn how to identify such vulnerabilities and consider the countermeasures that can mitigate their exploitation. You will also examine malicious software as a typical consequence of a successful software exploitation. A 2.1 equivalent degree (GPA 3.0) in either Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Mechatronics. Must have modules in electronics, maths and advanced/object oriented programming.

Students who have studied the Thanaweya A’ama will need complete a suitable Foundation Year. Students who have studied the Tawjihiyah/Thanawiya amma will need to complete a suitable Foundation Year. We recently invested over £70 million into developing the west side of campus where the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering is based. This course comes with the option to study abroad for a year, at the end of which you will gain a Diploma in International Studies .

Fees & funding

In the second stage of the competition, 17 of those teams were selected for awards of up to $1 million to conduct and evaluate ready-to-implement pilot projects in a 12-month timeframe. Teams will also collaborate across the entire program, sharing approaches and positioning projects to have a wider impact. The expertise of the researchers engaged in the AI Research Institutes spans a wide range of disciplines, providing an integrated effort to tackle the challenges society faces, drawing upon both foundational and use-inspired research. CISE’s Principles and Practice of Scalable Systems program aims to build a community of researchers who will work across computing stack layers to improve the scalability of modern applications, systems and toolchains. PPoSS encourages holistic approaches that address performance as well as important issues like correctness, accuracy, security and privacy, domain-specific design, and heterogeneity. In 2021, CISE selected four collaborative projects (to be funded at a total of $12 million over four years) to investigate scalability and other issues of parallel, heterogeneous, and edge systems.

This amounts to around hours of expected teaching and learning per week, inclusive of attendance requirements for lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical work, fieldwork or other scheduled classes, private study, and assessment. Part-time study load is the same as full-time pro-rata, with each credit point representing 10 hours of student effort. The Computing Research Association’s Committee on Widening Participation in Computing Research (CRA-WP) is one of CISE’s Broadening Participation in Computing Alliances.

  • Many of our courses receive a large number of applications for each available place.
  • A UK Engineering Council accredited course is an important mark of assurance that the course meets the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence.
  • The University of Glasgow has a total of 28 PGT Excellence Scholarships available to UK students entering any of the University’s Colleges.
  • In this module you will engage in theoretical and practical work on an agreed specific area relevant to electronic engineering.

You will need to gain an overall grade of Distinction, including a Distinction in at least 20 credits of Level 4 Mathematics. As our courses require solid foundations in Mathematics, we prefer you to have studied AS or A level Mathematics in addition to your HNC/HND qualification and encourage you to take this route if it is available. You will typically be expected to have completed five Scottish Highers and your grades in these will be considered as part of your application. Most of our students will join us with three principal subjects, but you may have study beyond this which demonstrates your individual talents that will help you with your degree. Most of our students will join us with three A levels, but you may have study beyond this which demonstrates your individual talents that will help you with your degree.

Data Storage

We accept GCE and International A levels and the IB Diploma whether you have studied them in the UK or abroad. We work with industrial partners to make sure our course content reflects the needs of engineering industries worldwide. You’ll graduate with the technical expertise and transferable skills that will open up employment opportunities for you. You can pursue a career in high-technology industries in electronics, power, aerospace, communications, robotics or manufacturing. Or you could find employment in other sectors such as IT, financial services, accountancy, the armed forces or business. Many of our graduates continue their studies to pursue an academic or research career.

In this module, labs and several individual assignments will build proficiency in creating C programs as solutions to engineering problems. Typical offers are based on an average of best 5 university preparatory level subjects in theHigh School Graduation Diplomaand offers typically range from80%-93%with specific subject marks required for some courses. Typical offers are based on an average of best 5 grade 12 subjects in theHigh School Graduation Diplomaand offers typically range from80%-93%with specific subject marks required for some courses. Where courses require achievement in GCSE Maths, we would normally look for a score of60%or higher ingrade 10Maths.

The practical application of these mechanisms in typical IT systems and architectures are incorporated. Our three year degree provides in-depth knowledge and skills in computer networking, including routing and switching, network security, data centres and the cloud. You will learn the necessary skills to design and manage, state-of-the-art enterprise networks.

Current students

Using contemporary examples, this module provides students with an in-depth coverage of data structures and algorithms within the scope of object oriented programming. Courses are continually reviewed to take advantage of new teaching approaches and developments in research, industry and the professions. The exact modules available and their order may vary depending on course updates, staff availability, timetabling and student demand.
