The BEng Honours programme in Digital Systems and Computer Engineering is directly awarded by the University of Hertfordshire, England.
The University of Hertfordshire has a history of providing the electronics industry with highly professional, practical graduates.
The digital world is innovative and exciting. A seamless interface between data entities, high bandwidth communication networks and high-performance computer systems are now commonplace. The knowledge and skill to design advanced digital systems, use sophisticated programming techniques, and deploy such systems are key attributes of the modern day computer engineer. This course enables you to gain skills appropriate to the design of both sophisticated embedded microprocessor systems and modern computer architectures. In microprocessor design you study topics such as real world interfacing using digital signal processing algorithms and techniques and intelligent control strategies employing neural network and fuzzy logic technology. In computer architecture you will study areas such as cache coherent systems, multilevel memory structures, super scalar architectures and media processors. These studies are underpinned by work on software specification, design and verification.
This final year top-up degree programme consists of 6 modules and one project and the complete programme consists of 120 credit points.It is conducted over 2 semesters of about 6 months each.

In addition to the requirements stated above, students entering the programme and whose first language is not English or students whose medium of instruction on their qualifying programme was not English will be required to demonstrate a proficiency in English to TOEFL 550/IELTS 6.0 or an equivalent recognized qualification.
Mobile and Digital Communication Networks
Analysis and design of mobile and cellular radio systems, and data communications networks, and examination of interaction of these in the context of modern mobile communications.
Microelectronics and VLSI
Develops design techniques further into the area of integrated circuit design, focussing particularly upon the demands of high-speed analogue and digital IC technologies. The analytical design process is supported by the use of relevant software design and simulation tools.
Operating Systems and Object Oriented Programming (BEng students)
Object oriented software techniques and system design concepts including modern operating system design and its interaction with, and dependence on, hardware architectures.
Digital Signal Processing
Architecture and use of advanced dedicated processors for the manipulation of digital data. Software simulation is used for the evaluation of designs.
Intelligent Systems and Robotics
Extends existing knowledge of control systems to include the design and evaluation of fuzzy logic and neutral network-based systems, taught in the context of robotics.
Modern PC structures, reduced and specialised instruction set processors, and multiprocessor systems, and the specialist programming techniques they require.
BEng Final Year Project
An opportunity for you to demonstrate your abilities as an electronics engineer as you undertake a substantial individual project in your specialist subject area.
Full/part time : minimum of 12 months
This course is conducted only at Bukit Merah. Please call 62735611 for more information.
Day/Evening classes taught by BMC Lecturers with Academic and industry experience.
Assessment and Grading System
Each module(except project module) is assessed for 100%, which comprise of course work(30%) and final exam(70%). The course work comprises of laboratory assessment and phase tests. Final year project module is 100% assessed on course work comprises feasibility report, interim seminar, demo & poster presentation and report.
The pass mark for each module is 40%. Both course work and final exam must be passed separately.
The degree classification is calculated based on the average of best 90 credit modules in which project module is compulsory.
Expected date of release of Assessment result
- First class Honours: 70% to 100%
- Upper second class Honours: 60% to 69%
- Lower second class Honours: 50% to 59%
- Third class Honours: 40% to 49%
Assessment results / Award of certificate will be available to the students within 3 months of the last assessment for that assessment cycle. Appeal on Assessment results will be avaliable to the students within 2 weeks from the date of release of results for that assessment cycle.
