This course is closely linked to the needs of the automotive, aerospace, medical and power generation industries.
The course will cover a range of topics at the cutting edge of the discipline using the latest digital tools. Topics will cover core aspects of Electronic Engineering along with their application in design and manufacturing. The project will also develop research skills and you will learn to apply these to apply the latest technologies to real and current engineering problems.
Project work will be a strong focus of the course and you will learn interactively by applying the skills you develop using our recently upgraded laboratory facilities.
Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, group work, laboratory projects and e-learning. We encourage you to develop independent study skills. You will also have opportunities to present ideas to other students and develop concepts within groups.
As well as assessments that count towards your degree, there are also on-going assessments for feedback and consolidating your learning. Assessment methods include exams, multiple-choice tests and projects.
