This course is delivered by the School of Computing and Information Systems in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing.
The Faculty's wide selection of undergraduate and postgraduate courses covers a diverse range of subject areas, from aerospace to geography; from maths and computing to biotechnology; and many more. Our collaborative set-up provides new opportunities for our students, and we design our courses with industry professionals to ensure you stay up to date with the latest developments.
The School of Computing and Information Systems offers high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate courses, designed to reflect the developing needs of business and industry. We deliver our teaching in an exciting and challenging learning environment, and make use of modern, well-equipped facilities.
Our courses cover the range of modern technologies in computer science, information systems and software engineering, with specialisations in games technology; network and wireless technologies; information security; electronic business; and embedded systems.
I am a reader in the School of Computing and Information Systems and the course director for the Embedded Systems MSc. I am a member of Kingston University's Digital Imaging Research Centre – one of the largest computer vision groups in the UK, with internationally recognised expertise in visual surveillance, medical imaging and intelligent environments. My research has been in the area of image processing, computer vision, machine learning and pattern recognition for the last 15 years.
The Embedded Systems MSc was developed and launched in 2010 as the School could see the wealth of opportunities in dedicated (or 'embedded') devices that combine hardware and software typically with sophisticated user interfaces, communications capabilities and sensing, and the need to have people with expertise in how to make best use of limited computing resources.
Professor Ordys is a chartered engineer, a member of the IET and a senior member of the IEEE. He currently teaches electronics and control; mechatronics; engine technology; automotive systems; and advanced automotive electronics. His research interests include:
Dr Novak is the director of postgraduate programmes for the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing. He is responsible for the taught MSc degrees' quality; academic coherence; management; and operation.
Dr Novak has been teaching and researching in universities across Europe and Australia since the late 1970s. By training a theoretical physicist, his work on the first supercomputer in the UK, the Cray 1S, introduced him to vector computation and led to a series of published papers. He has published 11 books and is the author of more than 40 research papers.
The British Computer Society (BCS) accredits this course which means you may be able to gain exemptions from some BCS professional examinations.
