High-Reliability Embedded Systems

Module code: EG7014

This module is centred around the design and implementation of software and hardware for embedded systems based on a single processor. The key focus of the module is on the production of applications that are modular and highly reliable -based on time-triggered system architectures.

Topics covered

  • Hardware and software design aspects of embedded systems, with particular attention paid to reliability and code reuse
  • The creation of small embedded applications


  • 11 hours of seminars
  • 33 hours of tutorials
  • 106 hours of guided independent study


  • Coursework x 2 (50% + 50%)
