Months of entry
The main objective of the course is to educate you in the key engineering aspects of electronic and electrical engineering, enabling you to undertake responsible, creative, challenging and stimulating posts in industry or research.
The course covers the key areas of electronic and electrical engineering. In addition to the technical background provided in these subjects, hands-on experience is gained through a major individual Research and Development project, a group design project and a supporting laboratory programme.Course Structure
The course consists of five core modules to provide an advanced engineering education in Electrical (List A) or Electronic (List B) Engineering alongside an optional module that allows students to increase their understanding in an area suited to their interests and needs. Students choose to follow List A or List B as described below. In addition to these taught modules, you will also complete a group design project and a major, individual research and development project working closely with an academic in your chosen subject area.
