Course Description

** School ranked No 1 in the UK in the latest Research Assessment Exercise ** The huge growth of processing power, now available in small power efficient packages has fuelled the digital revolution. All sectors of the economy have been touched by the digital revolution. From the consumer electronics industry we have seen MP3 players, PDA devices, HDTV and games consoles. The car industry has seen tremendous developments in adaptive control, engine management and GPS. Advances in Personal communications have given rise to WiFi and GSM networks. Medical and Process Industries now have sensing and imaging technologies that can visualise three dimensionally in real-time. Banking and commerce require secure online transactions which are only possible through encryption algorithms encoded within embedded systems. The growth of tools and techniques within this sector has led to a significant skills shortage, particularly for those trained at the highest level. This is practically-orientated and advanced course in the area of electronics design and applications. It is distinctive in that it provides a strong digital technology core backed up with applications-led modules. Examples of these applications include medical and electronics, e-health, intelligent building design, automotive electronics, retail and commerce. This broad coverage of diverse applications cannot be found in any comparable courses in the UK and is particular beneficial to students as it equips them for a range of careers in industry. Another feature of the course is the substantial amounts of practical work, giving students the confidence with software and digital hardware implementations using microcontrollers, FPGA, DSP devices and general system-on-chip the methodology. Sample taught modules include: Data Communications and Sensor Networks, Digital Design for System-on-chip, Digital Media Engineering, Digital Signal Processing for Communications, DSP Hardware Implementation, Embedded Systems Design, Main Project, Medical Electronics and E-Health, Mini Projects and Laboratory, Pilot Study. This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
