Entry requirements

Normal requirements are at least a UK second class honours degree or equivalent in a related engineering or technology discipline. If you do not meet the above but have significant appropriate experience, your application will be considered, provided that you satisfy the University that you are capable of responding to the challenge of postgraduate work. If your first language is not English, you will need to demonstrate that you are fluent enough to cope with the course. A minimum score of IELTS 6 or TOEFL 550 (213 computer-based) is normally required.

Course content

New technological advances, coupled with powerful CAD and synthesis tools, have changed the way in which electronic, instrumentation and telecommunications systems are designed and implemented. Today, most signal processing functions are carried out using digital techniques and digital systems are realised using VHDL, ASIC and FPGA devices.

It is crucial therefore, that graduates and practicing engineers have the skills, knowledge and understanding to apply new technologies in the design and implementation of modern systems.

The course provides coherent and up to date coverage of electronic engineering with modules in Microelectronic Systems, VLSI, Digital Signal Processing and Telecommunications.

The approach spans specification and design to realisation, with particular emphasis on the application of industry standard CAD tools and DSP devices to develop solutions to practical engineering problems.
