Overview of the programme

 

Electrical & Electronic engineering is now an important part of many leading edge industries.

 

In the automotive industry, for example electrical & electronic engineers are required to design engine control units, dashboard indicators, air-conditioning, safety, braking, and infotainment systems. 

 

Electrical & Electronic engineers are also involved with signalling and advanced railway control systems, as well as telecoms, for mobile phone applications. There are also many roles for them in the energy industries, for example designing and running complex control systems such as those needed to run the National Grid or to control a nuclear power station.

 

Electrical & Electronic engineering graduates are also desired for the fast moving consumer goods industry e.g. development of the latest smart screens and the use of intelligent transducers in both and industrial and a home automation environment.

 

To prepare students for these fast-changing roles, the programme covers design, modelling and test algorithms for complex assemblies. Analysis of circuit design for both low and high frequencies is an important element of the course content.

 

Software development is an integral part of a modern Electrical & Electronic Engineers role and to support this, software tools such as VEE, MULTISIM and MATLAB are used extensively in the course. Consideration of sustainability, compliance with RoHS directives and obsolescence solutions are also considered.
