Course summary

The foundation year of this Coventry University degree will be delivered from our CU Coventry campus. Course delivery from year 1 of the degree course onwards will be from Coventry University campus. This course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career across the electrical and electronic engineering sectors. The foundation year seeks to provide opportunities to develop fundamental knowledge and skills in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concepts of electrical and mechanical engineering. Students who successfully complete their foundation year will then progress onto the Electrical and Electronic Engineering BEng (Hons) degree within Coventry University’s School of Future Transport Engineering. Key benefits of the degree

  • Strong academic content conveyed with a factual focus, with the aim of preparing you to take on the challenges present in the field of electrical and electronic engineering
  • Opportunity to develop and implement a multiplicity of systems associated with electrical and electronic engineering
  • Emphasis on innovation, design, and development to enable you the opportunity to enrich your technical skills in the field of electrification of vehicle and control systems
  • Opportunities in the generation, transmission and control of electrical energy or machine design and the implementation power drive systems, linking to power electronic engineering
  • Develop your intellectual and independent thinking necessary to participate in contemporary projects and to peruse further studies and research in the field of electrical engineering
  • Well-equipped dedicated electronics laboratories and modern electrical labs to explore high voltage systems
  • Opportunities to gain international experience through field trips and group-based final year project

Modules

The foundation year seeks to provide opportunities to develop fundamental knowledge and skills in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concepts of electrical and mechanical engineering. Foundation year modules include: Fundamental Pure Mathematics Fundamental Applied Mathematics Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Fundamentals Mechanical Engineering Fundamentals The common first year enables you to work alongside students doing similar courses to you, to widen your knowledge and exposure to other subject areas and professions. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with other students, so you can share your insights and experience which will help you to develop and learn. Year One Modules: Engineering Mathematics Electrical and Electronic Engineering Principles Engineering Design Analogue and Digital Devices Electronic Systems in Action Introduction to Programming Year Two Year two builds on Year one learning and introduces new curriculum material. You will be introduced to the signal and systems module, which will prepare you for more advanced signal processing technique on the following year. More advanced electronics and system design topics will be covered in the electronic modules. This will include electronic system design, manufacturing, and testing. Electrical engineering and Analogue Control module will deal with classical engineering and control theory problems. Modules Analogue and Digital Systems Signals and System Analysis Embedded System Design & Development Manufacture of Electronic Systems Electrical Engineering Analogue control and Instrumentation Placement Year There’s no better way to find out what you love doing than trying it out for yourself, which is why a work placement* can often be beneficial. Work placements usually occur between your second and final year of study. They’re a great way to help you explore your potential career path and gain valuable work experience, whilst developing transferable skills for the future. If you choose to do a work placement year, you will pay a reduced tuition fee* of £1250. For more information, please go to the fees and funding section. During this time, you will receive guidance from your employer or partner institution, along with your assigned academic mentor who will ensure you have the support you need to complete your placement. Final Year This year aims to bring you to a level of professional capability equivalent to that of a graduate electrical and electronic engineer. As part of your Year three studies, you will undertake an individual project, which will entail undertaking research and design studies with the guidance of a supervisor to provide a set of engineering solutions. Other study subjects are as shown below and include an optional subject choice thus giving the opportunity to tailor your level three studies. Modules Digital Signal Processing and Applications Power Electronics and Renewable energy Individual Project Preparation Individual Project Realisation Digital Control and Instrumentation High Frequency Electronics Power Systems Additional Year Following on from successful completion of the BEng (Hons) study you can opt to proceed to the MEng Electronics and Communication degree. In this additional year, more advanced topics related to electronics and communication engineering will be investigated which is beyond the scope of undergraduate study. We regularly review our course content, to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
