Module Details

You will study several key topics and complete a four-month individual project in which you apply your knowledge to a significant, in-depth piece of analysis or design. Projects are tailored to your individual interests and may take place in our own laboratories or, by agreement, in industry.

Here are the units you will study:

VHDL and Digital Systems Design: This unit covers the use of a hardware description language (VHDL) to capture and model the design requirement - whilst programmable logic devices enable an implementation to be explored and tested prior to moving into manufacture. The learning will have a practical bias such that experience as well as theory is gained in completing this unit.

Advanced DSP Techniques: This unit aims to introduce you to the fundamentals of statistical signal processing, with particular emphasis upon classical and modern estimation theory, parametric and nonparametric modelling, time series analysis, least squares methods, and basics of adaptive signal processing.

Mixed Signal Processors: This unit focuses on both control and signal processing hardware, how it works, how to interface to it, and software - how to design it and debug it.

Sensors and Measurement Systems: This unit proposes to introduce you to the technologies underpinning measurements including sensors both in terms of hardware and software. It also aims to provide you with an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in a practical setting and gain an appreciation of modern day requirements in terms of measurement.

Microwave and Wireless Technology: The unit combines team working via a project based learning activity relating to a significant circuit simulation and design problem with lectures aimed at analysing and applying the characteristics of a range of devices used in the microwave and wireless industries.

Communication System Analysis: This unit focuses on basic principles in the analysis and design of modern communication systems, the workhorses behind the information age. It puts emphasis on the treatment of analogue communications as the necessary background for understanding digital communications.

Programme Assessment

You will be taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars, tutorials (personal and academic), laboratory sessions and project work. The course has a strong practical emphasis and you will spend a significant amount of time in our electronic, communications and computer laboratories.

A range of assessment methods encourages a deeper understanding of engineering and allows you to develop your skills. Here’s how we assess your work:
