Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This course covers the ability to apply the knowledge gained in the course creatively and effectively for the benefit of the profession, to plan and execute a programme of work efficiently, and to be able to enhance students' skills and knowledge. Industry-standard equipment, such as a scanning tunnelling microscope for atomic scale probing or an hp4124 parameter analyser for power devices, is used for simulation, implementation and communication. There will be the opportunity to choose and apply suitable prototyping and production methods and components, gain knowledge in constructing and evaluating advanced models of various manufacturing techniques, and be able to differentiate, analyse and discuss various product lifetime management solutions and how they affect different sectors of industry. The modules on the course can also be studied as stand-alone modules for those who are in employment seeking professional development or further knowledge in particular subject fields.

Entry requirements
