Course Description

This three-year degree allows the widest possible choice of modules in the fields of electronic design, instrumentation, communications, optical engineering, new electronic devices, microelectronics, VLSI and engineering software. Final-year project work may be within any of these fields.

The field of electronic engineering continues to dominate the world of entertainment, automation technology, IT and global communications. This three-year degree allows the widest possible choice of modules in the fields of electronic design, instrumentation, communications, optical engineering, new electronic devices, microelectronics, VLSI and engineering software. Final-year project work may be within any of these fields.

The department has very strong research teams working in medical electronics, advanced instrumentation techniques and VLSI design applications. The department is also internationally recognised for its work in new ultra-high speed electronic and optical devices. This means you are taught by world leaders in their field.

Year one 

The first year is common to all of our courses. This gives you the option to transfer onto other courses within the department once you know more about the specialist areas. You will gain an understanding of the principles and practices on which all specialisms within electrical and electronic engineering are founded. The electrical and electronic engineering construction project allows you to apply your knowledge and gain valuable practical and fault-finding skills. Week-long practical sessions will help you engage fully in your work and develop as a professional engineer. Your appreciation of science and mathematics will also be enhanced.

Year two

You will continue to improve your understanding of electrical and electronic engineering, and your design skills will be developed through a variety of laboratory-based subjects. This will prepare you to study, in the final years of your course, emerging and advanced technologies usually taught by internationally recognised researchers.

Group projects, presentations and seminars enable you to gain the skills and understanding essential for the workplace.

Year three

In year three, you will be able to choose from a range of specialist topics, with flexibility to maintain a broad base or focus on specific technologies. Your individual project forms a major part of the final year. Working in an area of your choosing, you will develop design, analysis, construction and fault-finding skills.

This three-year degree allows the widest possible choice of modules in the fields of electronic design, instrumentation, communications, optical engineering, new electronic devices, microelectronics, VLSI and engineering software.
