Electronic, Computer and Systems Engineering B.Sc. Honours.
Classification: Upper Second Class Honours (2:1).Course included Analogue and Digital Electronics, Control, Communications, Software Engineering, Real Time Systems, Computer Peripheral systems, Object-Oriented Design with C++, Computer Graphics and User Interfaces, Computer and Communication Networks, Quality and Reliability Engineering, Human Resource Management, Financial Management, Marketing, Human Factors for System Design, Ergonomics, Software Project Management, Second Year and Final Year Projects.
My Second Year Project was a hand held Optical Revolution Data Acquisition System. The project was based around an Intel 8051 Microprocessor, Non-Volatile RAM for storage of results, a three-button interface, a LCD and a RS232 Interface for connection to a PC. Software was written in assembler for the 8051 and in Modula-2 for the host PC software that retrieved the data results from the hand held unit and graphed the results.
Final Year Project was a Graphical User Interface for a set of pattern recognition tools. The tools were a set of algorithms that could identify hand written characters. The Graphical user interface was written using Microsoft Windows 16bit API calls and featured Image file decoding algorithms to allow scanned images to be used. The project mainly concentrated on applying User Interface theory and all software was written using the Borland C IDE.
1993 – 1994 Harlow College, Essex.
