Computational Embedded Systems Engineering

Embedded systems are found in many devices that we normally use for everyday tasks, from the camera found in our smartphone, or the touchpad in our laptop, to the intercom system found inside buildings, or the controller buttons on a photocopier. These systems differ from computers in that they are designed to fulfill very specific functions.


To develop well qualified bilingual engineers, especially knowledgeable in the areas of physics, mathematics, and computational electronic engineering techniques; thus being properly skilled to create intrinsically integrated innovations in fields such as planning, design and construction of embedded electronic systems, avionics, aerospace, opto-electronic systems, signal amplification and control systems, and industrial processes.
