Modules

Methods of assessment for this course overall: 62% coursework

Year 1
  • Introductory mathematics 
    This module aims to give you a sound understanding of the basic mathematics that will be required for the rest of the course.
  • Design and practice
    The module covers the following material: design activities, team work, creative problem solving, project management, sustainable development principles, personal development planning, report writing communication, Computer-Aided Design (CAD), employability and transferable skills.
  • Engineering principles
    This module develops the students' understanding of essential scientific principles for the study of engineering to degree level. It is designed to be accessible to students with a wide range of prior science specialisation. The module comprises four blocks of study: three are common to all engineering disciplines and introduce the principles of measurement systems and units, thermal physics, mechanical and electrical principles, and engineering materials and their properties. You'll study the basic circuit theory required for the rest of the course.
  • Introduction to digital electronics
    This module covers the introductory material essential for any electronics engineer before proceeding with any digital designs. The material in this module is divided into two parts. The first part covers the analysis and implementation of Boolean Logic circuits and their modelling using a proprietary CAD and VHDL. The second part of the module will focus on analysis and implementation of Sequential Logic circuits, their modelling and implementation using Programmable Logic Devices.
  • Computer programming for engineers
  • Introduction to electrical and electronic engineering
    The material covered in this module is relevant to the fundamentals of both electronic and electrical engineering. 
Year 2
  • Advanced mathematics
  • Circuits, signals and systems
    This module introduces methods to mathematically modelled circuits, signals and systems required for the engineering of electrical, electronic, telecommunication and control systems. 
  • Analogue and digital electronics
    This module examines basic analogue and digital electronic circuit design and applications, along with some investigation of mixed signal systems involving analogue and digital circuit techniques.
  • Engineering software C++
    This module introduces the syntax and semantics of programming languages C++, together with software engineering principles. The module also teaches advanced topics such as Object Oriented Programming (OOP) and network programming.
  • Group design project
  • Fundamentals of communication
    This module provides understanding of fundamental principles of communication theory and transmission channels.  
Year 3

Optional placement

Year 4
  • Innovation and enterprise
    The module is intended to be practical, with students developing some appropriate ideas of their own in such a way that they become practical, profitable propositions. Students will practice ways of finding ideas, testing those ideas and developing them, and will write their own business strategies, risk assessments and scenario testing so that demonstrate the commercial viability of their ideas. One of the assignments will require students – working in groups, typically to adopt a concept and develop it such that it could be commercially viable and sustainable. This might be a product or a service (such as consultancy or contract management). Topics students will experience will include intellectual property, market research, market placement, advertising and finance.
  • Analogue and digital communication systems
    This module provides deeper understanding of communication theory, system performance analysis and wireless communication technologies. The areas covered are analogue and digital communication systems, modulation techniques, multiplexing, error control and principle of digital modulation. This module will also give an understanding of wireless communication systems. Key topics in this field are explored, such as technologies and architectures, design approaches and applications.
  • Project
    This module covers the planning, execution, review and reporting on piece of practical project work demonstrating in-depth technical understanding and knowledge of a chosen technical subject, as well as competence in personal planning and management skills.
  • DSP for communications
    Today, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is widely used in radio receivers, computers, and many other applications where signals need to be processed. DSP is based upon the fact that it is possible to build up a representation of the signal in a digital form. This module introduces fundamental concepts, algorithms and applications of digital signal processing, starting from a description of how signals can be represented as digital waveforms and how systems may be modelled as digital filters. The module investigates the processing and analysis of signals using the most common approaches and algorithms.
  • Optical and microwave communications
    This module teaches the practical and theoretical aspects of optical and microwave communication technology.

All modules are assessed by a mix of examinations, assignments, reports, presentations and other formats.
