Electronics & Communication

Course summary

There can be very little left in life untouched by electronics. Together electronics and communications technologies are transforming the world and our lives in it; they may also hold the key to solving some of our most pressing social and environmental problems. Designed to meet detailed requirements of the electronics industry, this course explores everything from analytical methods and principles to advanced CAD techniques, and electronic system design. The course begins by looking at analytical methods, focussing on the mathematical strategies and processes involved in solving a wide range of engineering problems. You will also learn electrical and electronic theory and principles and begin to analyse electronic circuits and devices and investigate their performance. You will explore 2D and 3D modelling, and use computer simulation in engineering tasks, evaluating wireframe, surface and solid modelling techniques, and their relationship to manufacturing. As the course progresses, it introduces principles of control systems and electronic systems design, communications engineering, micro-programmable systems and instrumentation and control. Using the knowledge of all these aspects of electronics and communication, you will complete an engineering project. The project is an individual investigation of a routine problem in any of the engineering disciplines encountered in the programme, demonstrating your understanding of the inter-relationships in a range of engineering disciplines.

Assessment method

Assessment is through a combination of assignments, in course assessments and end of module examinations. The majority of students' project module is industry based and has been acknowledged as exceptional by both academics and industry.
