Electronic Engineering

This course focuses on miniaturised systems which are able to describe and diagnose a situation, detect critical conditions, and identify and address each other; they may also be energy autonomous and networked. Students will also learn how to design advanced circuits for high frequency applications. The course will also include methods of building control loops and associated software; the design of analogue and digital electronic interfaces; and the manufacture of novel packaging technologies. The dissertation will be on a major industrial project.

Entry requirements

A 2nd Class Honours degree, or its equivalent, in a related engineering discipline which may include communications, electrical engineering, computer systems and physics. An HND together with appropriate practical experience may also be acceptable. Students whose 1st language is not English require evidence of proficiency in the English language.

Course modules

Modules include: Smart systems; intelligent control; advanced embedded systems; high frequency electronics; linking group project; system on chip engineering.
