Core Module Information
Module title: Advanced Embedded Systems

SCQF level: 11:
SCQF credit value: 20.00
ECTS credit value: 10

Module code: ELE11120
Module leader: Abdelfateh Kerrouche
School School of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment
Subject area group: Cyber Security and Systems Engineering


Description of module content:

The module content will be based on three main areas of embedded systems. The first section will consider the use and application of modern smart sensing devices to cover a range of measurements. These will then be used in distributed systems to put together complete instrumentation systems. The final stage will be the integration of instrumentation systems into the control of industrial plant.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: analyse and rationalise the use of embedded systems components.
LO2: explore and critically reflect on the limitations of accuracy of analytical sensor elements.
LO3: rationalise the impact of intelligent instrumentation in a range of environments.
LO4: examine the elements of design methodologies to implement embedded systems.
LO5: critically appraise the design of intelligent control systems based in different types of microcontrollers.
LO6: engage in critical dialogue in the specification industrial instrument systems.
