Course content

Our course gives you technical and managerial expertise in electronic systems design and engineering to meet the demands of industry.
You will learn how to research, design and develop electronic systems and engineering technologies, processes and products throughout the industry value chain. You will graduate with the skills needed to take a future lead role in electronic systems industries worldwide.
Learning outcomes
  • Explain and develop designs of electronic systems and sub-systems.
  • Implement electronic systems designs within complex engineering platforms.
  • Use the latest industry-standard electronic system design tools and software.
  • Apply artificial intelligence and modern control, and computer engineering techniques to improve performance of modern electronic equipment and devices.
  • Develop a detailed understanding of project planning and through-life project costing.
  • gain leadership and teamwork skills through project work.
Semester-long placement
You will get to apply the knowledge and skills you learn to a placement in industry in the third semester. We have strong links with companies and businesses, many of which are placement partners with us.
We will do our best to help you find a placement in industry and support and guide you through the application process. However, we cannot guarantee you a position. If you are unable to secure a placement, you will transfer onto our 12-month alternative MSc course.
Collaborative working
You will experience a mix of traditionally taught subject-specific units and business and group-orientated modular work.
These offer you the chance to grow your design, project management skills and creativity while working with students from other subjects.
