About the course
Electronics equipment and products are becoming a vital part of our daily lives, from simple MP3 players, mobile phones and computers to highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment used in hospitals and state-of the-art fibre optic communications systems. Computers, telecommunication systems and consumer electronics are advancing at a fast pace.
This is a traditional and broad-based course which aims to produce well-rounded engineers with a high level of analytical and engineering design skills. You will develop a sound knowledge of:
- all aspects of electronic and electrical engineering and related areas
- the future of electronics, microelectronics and computer systems.
The course also offers practical aspects, making use of the university’s well resourced labs and facilities in electronics, sensors, computer systems, computer networks, signal processing.
Our undergraduate degrees allow you to specialise so that you can match your studies to your own particular interest, or maintain a broad approach. They have a common first year during which you will study all of the main specialisms.
Based on your own personal learning experiences of these subjects, you will be able to re-evaluate your original degree choice at the end of level 1 and switch to a related course if you want.
