Thousands of students have had to make the decision you are making right now. For those who have chosen computer systems, where have they ended up? In my next two posts, I will be asking key questions to previous Computer Systems graduates, to gain insight into what Computer Systems is like, and why anyone would…Continue Reading Interviewing real Computer Systems Engineers #1
What do Computer Systems Engineers actually do?
As I sit in my Engineering Management and Communication lecture, the existential crisis begins once again. Despite extensively researching computer systems engineering in my first year, I still sometimes wonder exactly what it is I am studying. Why am I not doing software or electrical? What makes computer systems different? In this post, I will…Continue Reading What do Computer Systems Engineers actually do?
Semester One – Solving Circuits in My Dimly Lit Room
“One of my team members hasn’t done anything yet!” “We have so many labs I can barely keep up!” These are both sentences I am yet to mutter. Is it because I magically had great teams and I love labs? Nope, it’s just because semester one of Computer systems is approx 95% theory. Semester one…Continue Reading Semester One – Solving Circuits in My Dimly Lit Room
Life = ComputerSystems;
Hi, I’m Angela, the Part II Computer Systems blogger for 2019! If you’re reading this with no clue about what computer systems engineering (CSE) is, you join the club of my parents, extended family, friends, and practically anyone who hasn’t done the degree (yes, I’ve had a lot of practice trying to explain to people…Continue Reading Life = ComputerSystems;
Hey boys and girls! Today I’m going to talk about the most software heavy paper we do this year, COMPSYS202. The lecturers are great, the people who didn’t get into software are now happy and we get to do this paper with mechatronics students which is pretty dope too. COMPSYS202 basically extends what you learn…Continue Reading OOPs
Three weeks have gone past so far into semester 2 and, as usual, the workload has already started to pile up. However, the cool thing about this workload in particular is that it’s all project work. We only have 1 exam to ‘look forward to’ this semester. But of course that just means that these…Continue Reading Mainly 209

I chose computer systems because I’m the type of person that’s unable to stick with one thing. I have the attention span of a goldfish so having the ability…Continue Reading Beep Boop
Semester 2 so far
Hi everyone! We are halfway through the second semester and its getting busy. We have our 209 project and labs due every week for 209. However, the labs help us understand the project specifications and allows us to do the project tasks with a little ease but it still is pretty hectic. We have tests…Continue Reading Semester 2 so far
One Semester of Computer Systems
Semester one has officially come to an end and our exams are finally all over, I can tell you one thing and that is that it has been a hectic semester keeping up with all the assignments and tests as they were being thrown over at us one after the other. As all that is…Continue Reading One Semester of Computer Systems
What’s a Social Life?
It has been exactly 10 weeks and Computer systems hasn’t let me down, not even once. The lecturers are extremely nice and amazing teachers. The two hour long lectures do tend to get tiring and it gets harder to concentrate but overall, it’s not too bad. This semester we have 3 two-hour long lectures, from…Continue Reading What’s a Social Life?
