Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Computing Systems
By the end of this content area, students will be able to have: 1. coherent knowledge of their branch of engineering including some at the forefront of the branch in real time systems; 2. the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding of computing systems to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems using established methods for deterministic systems; 3. the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding to develop and realise designs to meet defined and specified time requirements; 4. an understanding of design methodologies, and an ability to use them. 5. workshop and programming skills. 6. the ability to select and use appropriate equipment, tools and methods; 7. the ability to combine theory and practice to solve problems of computing systems; 8. an understanding of applicable techniques and methods in computing systems, and of their limitations.
