Turn on your career in electronic engineering at Manchester, a university with a prestigious history in the subject and a bright focus on the future. We're home to one of the largest departments dedicated to the subject in the UK, have fantastic links with industry, and have taught the discipline here since 1905. Both today and in years to come we look to electronics to provide answers for complex problems. Take the mobile phone: a very sophisticated computer and communications system that links to a worldwide network of antennas allowing it to connect to any other mobile or landline, as well as the internet. Or the digital camera, at the heart of which is a sophisticated electronic device containing millions of individual light level detectors. We live in an information age. Complex systems require digital signal processing (for images, audio and other signals), and technological developments in communications include concurrent processing (to allow the manipulation of the massive amounts of data), data networking and digital communication systems for both local distribution and across the internet. Explore these themes and acquire the skills to take them forward at Manchester.
