Electrical engineering and electronics have transformed the way we live. We see this in everyday items like the laptop computer, television, mobile phone or MP3 player, or the lighting and equipment in our homes and work places. Less obvious, but just as important, is the contribution made to medicine, road transport, aerospace, and industry in general. This programme provides the education and training needed for holders of a relevant HND to gain an Honours degree, and hence contribute as a professional to these ground-breaking technologies. This BSc(Hons) Top-Up degree programme is intended to give students who have successfully completed the HND or Foundation degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering the opportunity to progress to Honours Degree level. The programme is vocationally oriented. It has been developed by the University of Derby, and benefits from their close association with local and regional industry. It is further informed by their research and scholarship profile, and their contacts internationally. The content and structure of the degree is designed to provide you with an academically challenging and vocationally relevant top-up programme, building on an appropriate HND or Foundation degree. It encompasses the main competencies needed to maintain and progress your career within industries engaged in electrical and/or electronic engineering. You will be taught using demonstrations, laboratory sessions, lectures and tutorials.
Electrical Power Systems; Electronic Devices and Systems; Innovation in Sustainable Engineering Design; Sensors and Control; Independent Project (Double Module).
A variety of assessment methods will be used. Some modules are assessed through coursework only, others by a combination taken from portfolios of work, case studies, oral and graphic presentations, team work projects, computer testing and examinations, so providing a flexible and effective means of assessing your progress.
