Courses

This program is designed as a one-year full time program. Coursework includes seven foundational courses with lectures and laboratory, and two project courses leading to a final project. Courses emphasize embedded systems: hardware and software, sensor networks, real-time systems, security and control.

Graduation Project

Students will acquire integrative knowledge of systems as well as hands-on experience in an applied domain through a group or individual graduation project.

Cyber-physical Systems

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are a broad range of complex, multidisciplinary, next-generation engineered systems that integrate embedded computing technologies (sensors and actuators) and computational algorithms into the physical world.

Careers

Embedded and cyber-physical systems are entrenched in almost every aspect of our daily lives. Information technology researchers forecast that by 2020, upwards of 20.8 billion connected things will be in use worldwide.

Faculty and Staff

Faculty from UCI’s schools of engineering, and information and computer sciences will share their breadth of knowledge in this interdisciplinary program that prepares graduates for jobs in a variety of industries: electronics, aerospace, automotive/transportation, biomedical, manufacturing, robotics, security, defense, civil infrastructure and construction.
