Overview

Overview

On this course, you'll expand your current knowledge by learning about key topics – such as microwave and wireless technology, and the practical application and design aspects of electronic systems. In the process, you'll update your skills too.

You'll graduate with the ability to apply new technologies in the design and implementation of modern systems. And because the course has been designed to meet a skills shortage in the field, you'll be in an excellent position to pursue roles from product design to aerospace engineering.

You can start this course in October or February (full time only in February).

What you'll experience

  • Learn more about the practical application and design aspects of electronic systems
  • Use our extensive multimedia computational facilities, which feature the latest industry software
  • Improve your knowledge of VHDL and Digital Systems Design, Advanced DSP Techniques, Analytical Management Techniques, Materials for Electronic Products, Microwave and Wireless Technology and Sensors and Measurement Systems, through a combination of theory and practice
  • Work in our labs, including the Analogue and Digital Electronics Laboratories, the Control Engineering Laboratory and the Telecommunications and Signal Processing Laboratory, which are equipped with professional tools and kits
  • Get to grips with hardware and software development tools for design, development and implementation, as well as our advanced computer suites, which feature the latest analysis and simulation software used by professionals in the industry
  • Complete a personal project based on a significant, in-depth piece of analysis or design
