Durham University Band E English requirement.
Months of entry
The main objective of the course is to educate you in the key engineering aspects of electronic engineering, enabling you to undertake responsible, creative, challenging and stimulating posts in industry or research.
The course covers the key areas of electronic engineering. In addition to the technical background, experience of applying theoretical concepts is gained through a major individual Research and Development project and a group design project. These projects enable students to develop the capacity to solve problems across the traditional engineering boundaries.Course structure
The course consists of a set of core modules to provide an advanced engineering education in electronic engineering alongside an optional module that allows students to increase their understanding in an area suited to their interests and needs, sometimes straying beyond electronic engineering. 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.
Core taught content:
- Radio and Digital Communications
- Advanced Electronics Measurement
- Communication Networks
- Advanced Electronics
Students usually select one optional module from modules such as:
- Environmental Engineering
- Internet of Everything
