Our Computer Engineering degrees place your future at your fingertips. They enable you to develop the computer systems of tomorrow and prepare for a career as a software engineer, control engineer or network engineer, as well as a variety of roles working with intelligent systems.

You can study a broad-based computer engineering degree or specialise in electronic engineering, robotics and artificial intelligence, or systems automation.

A range of three-year undergraduate degrees and a four-year integrated Masters degree are available, providing you with opportunities to focus on distinctive topics such as the Internet of Things (IoT), virtual reality, programming, communications systems and instrumentation engineering.

Whichever programme you choose, you will gain practical experience working on real-life projects and develop the essential people skills to complement your technical ability.

Open Days and Virtual Events

Two students walk away from the Tech Hub.If you are considering studying at Edge Hill University, the best way we usually recommend to gain an insight into the student experience is by attending an open day.

Our November 2020 open day is going virtual. We will ensure that you can still discover everything that Edge Hill University has to offer and get answers to all of your questions. You will be able to find out more about computer engineering and the University through a series of online activities.

If you would like to see our stunning campus for yourself, private campus tours, led by a student guide, are also available on a variety of dates. Pre-booking is essential.
