Course content

This is a broad programme in advanced electronics, reflecting the latest developments in telecommunications, embedded systems, instrumentation and control. Despite this considerable breadth, an extensive range of options allows students to tailor the course to suit their individual requirements. The programme enables students to develop advanced skills in various aspects of modern hardware, software and firmware engineering.

This programme reflects the latest developments in electronic system design and illustrates the use of electronic systems technologies in instrumentation, measurement and control. You develop the skills to design and build complex electronic systems, in a wide range of applications, using appropriate technologies and techniques.

We have developed the programme with a number of industrial organisations, which means that successful students will be in a strong position to build a long-term career in this important discipline.

Modules

Most programmes will require you to study a combination of compulsory and optional modules.

Teaching and Assessment

The project module is examined by a presentation and dissertation. The Research Methods and Project Design module is examined by several components of continuous assessment. The other modules are assessed by examinations and smaller components of continuous assessment. Students must gain credits from all the modules (180 credits in total).
