Course content

Taking electronic engineering to the next level by adding high frequency devices, micro sensors, micro actuators, biology and novel materials is one of the primary goals of engineers and scientists within the electronic community.

This course focuses on miniaturised systems which are able to describe and diagnose a situation, detect critical conditions, and identify and address each other. They may also be energy autonomous and networked. Students will also learn how to design advanced circuits for high frequency applications.

The course will also include methods of building control loops and associated software; the design of analogue and digital electronic interfaces; and the manufacture of novel packaging technologies.

The dissertation will be on a major industrial project.
