Course summary

From the outset, we aim to place an emphasis on innovation, design and development to enrich your technical and transferrable skills. You’ll have access to the latest technologies in the fields of electrical and electronic engineering in our well-equipped micro-electronics laboratories, power laboratory and dedicated project facilities. You will be taught by current staff with substantial research experience and expertise in areas such as: photovoltaics; semiconductor devices modelling, simulation, design and fabrication; electromagnetics; iron core saturation; control theory and applications; wireless sensors and embedded micro-electronics. This informs your teaching, keeping you abreast of new developments and issues, whilst providing opportunities to partner staff on research projects (subject to availability). Key Course Benefits

  • Access to engineering software, such as MultiSim, Proteus, Matlab. TI DSP development tools.
  • Regular expert guest lectures, which previously have covered topics such as National Grid in areas of power distribution.
  • Collaborative links with universities in 20 different countries around the world, providing opportunities for student exchanges.
  • Our four specialist Faculty Research Centres have a strong portfolio of world-leading research in wireless sensors, pervasive Computing, distributed computer systems, digital forensics, computer security, serious games, virtual reality, aerodynamics and electrical energy.
  • Study in our state-of-the-art £50m Engineering and Computing building, with access to extensive cutting-edge facilities in our High Performance Engineering Centre, which houses a 20% scale model wind tunnel (designed and built by the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team), composites lab, metrology lab, four-pot shaker rig, flow lab, AVL engine test cell, automotive workshop, fatigue and tensile testing (Instron), a full size Harrier Jet, three further simulators, civil engineering specialist testing equipment, a range of CNC machinery and a laser workshop.

Course details


Your main study themes are: Analogue and digital electronics: this module aims to develop your capability to produce useful practical designs in the technology area of analogue and digital electronics. You will be given an opportunity to conceive and simulate your own practical computer circuit designs. Topics covered include semiconductor diodes and their application in power supplies, bipolar junction transistors in single-stage amplifiers, and field effect transistors. Digital topics include the realisation of logic gates, design of small and medium scale combinational functions and the use of flip-flops in sequential logic. Digital Signal Processing: Computer-based systems are increasingly required to detect, analyse and manipulate signals, or data, from a wide range of sources, such as sound, light, temperature or pressure. We aim to teach you to analyse continuous and discrete-time signals and systems, developing higher level signal processing techniques and filters, together with knowledge of digital image processing and pattern recognition. Control Systems: Control and instrumentation provides an important link between modern integrated computer-based monitoring and control applications and traditional engineering disciplines. It is used in a wide range of areas, including process control, aerospace, automotive, robotics, environmental and energy efficient manufacturing industries. Upon successful completion of the module, you should develop a broad understanding of the principles, techniques and applications associated with control engineering and instrumentation, gaining a good engineering insight into the implementation of modern computer based control system methodologies. Communications Systems: You will study digital transmission techniques in the context of contemporary communications, including analogue and digital communications. You will also look at the associated methods of modulation and demodulation, as well as reviewing the factors that can impair signals. Electrical engineering: This module explores the concepts, principles and techniques used in electrical engineering including steady state DC circuit analysis, AC circuit analysis, single phase and three phase circuits, transformers, motors and generators.Engineering mathematics: This module aims to develop your competence in mathematical methods relevant to engineering. You should learn to analyse problems using appropriate mathematical techniques, carrying out the manipulation yourself using modern mathematical.
