Course detail

Description

Our course will provide you with a thorough and deep understanding of general electronic engineering design and analysis, whilst also developing key management skills and techniques.

The course is unique in offering specialist modules in robotics and computer science alongside electronic engineering and management. The diverse nature of our course means you are able to develop a strong foundation in electronic engineering and management, whilst also studying more advanced topics in real time and control systems, telecommunication networks, and operations management.

You will be taught by academics who are world-leading experts in their fields and you will benefit from their decades of knowledge and experience. You will explore the essential concepts and principles in engineering management and identify the professional and ethical responsibilities of engineering practice. There is also a strong focus on developing mathematical skills, which you will use to analyse the performance of communication and control systems.

Throughout the course, you will have access to over 250 fast PCs running Windows and Linux located in several state of the art laboratories and for the exclusive use of the Department.

Our student societies organise social and other activities.

Teaching

You are expected to spend approximately 10 hours work per credit for each module you attend in your degree, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15 credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module: lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions, independent study, coursework and preparation for examinations.

Assessment

You will be assessed through written examinations, project reports, and coursework. For the practical and design elements, you will be assessed through laboratory write-ups, design projects, presentations, research project reports and oral examinations.

Special notes

The Department of Informatics consists of expertise in four computer science groups (Agents & Intelligent Systems, Planning, Algorithm & Bioinformatics, and Software Modelling & Applied Logic), and groups in robotics and telecommunications. The selection of available optional taught course modules reflects the range of research interests in the department. All years of our programmes are kept under constant review and we reserve the right to change and improve them at any time.
