To provide a coherent selection of electrical and electronic engineering subjects to advanced level. Module combinations include communications and signal processing through control engineering to electrical machines and drives. The course is ideal for the engineer who wishes to follow a career in the design and implementation of electrical and electronic circuits within the wider engineering environment.
Core modules: - Matlab and CAD - Individual project Option modules (three from the following): - Modelling and Classification of Data - High-reliability Embedded Systems - Robust Control - Electrical Machines and Drives - Radio Systems Option modules (four from the following): - Electronically Controlled Motor Drives - Design of Discrete Systems - Real-time Signal Processing - Non-linear control - Digital Communications - Advanced Computational Methods in Materials Modelling and Engineering Design - Industry placement You may, if you wish, choose to study for an MSc in Advanced Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Industry, which includes the opportunity to apply for a range of industry placements arranged by the Department. Your placement, of between three and nine months, will be undertaken after the taught part of the course, allowing you to acquire industrial experience and develop an appreciation of how the new skills you have acquired relate to problems in industry.
Teaching and assessment methods
Modules are taught using lectures and seminar sessions and are supported by a range of structured practical and laboratory work. Performance in modules is assessed by means of open and closed examination papers and a range of continuously assessed work. All MSc students are required to produce a dissertation including the results obtained in the individual project module.
