Course content

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.

Key Course Features

Specialism's within this programme feature modern power electronics and drive systems combined with their controlling mechanisms and modelling using MATLAB and state space models.

What Will You Study?

FULL-TIME MODE (SEPTEMBER INTAKE)

The taught element, Part One, of the programmes will be delivered in two 12 week trimesters and each trimester has a loading of 60 credits.

You will cover six taught modules which include lectures, tutorials and practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.

Part Two will then take a further 15 weeks having a notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.

The six taught modules will have lectures and tutorials/practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.

Part Two will then take a further 15 weeks having a notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.

FULL-TIME MODE (JANUARY INTAKE)

For the January intake, students will study the three specialist modules first during the second trimester from January to May. The three core modules will be studied in the first trimester of the next academic year from September to January.

On successful completion of the taught element of the programme the students will progress to Part Two, MSc dissertation to be submitted in April/May.

PART-TIME MODE

The taught element, part one, of the programmes will be delivered over two academic teaching years. 80 credits or equivalent worth of modules will be delivered in the first year and 40 credits or equivalent in the second year. The part time students would join the full time delivery with lectures and tutorials/practical work during one day on a weekly basis.

The dissertation element will start in trimester 2 taking a further 30 weeks having a total notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.

AREAS OF STUDY INCLUDE

  • Engineering Research Methods & Postgraduate Studies
  • Engineering Design & Innovation
  • Engineering Systems Modelling & Simulation
  • Advanced Control Engineering & System Analysis
  • Power Electronics, drives and Energy Systems
  • Circuit Design and Electronic Testing
  • Dissertation

The information listed in this section is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal academic framework review, so may be subject to change.

Assessment and Teaching

You will be assessed throughout your course through a variety of methods including portfolios, presentations and, for certain subjects, examinations.

TEACHING AND LEARNING

Teaching methods include lectures, laboratory sessions, student-led seminars and guided research. Independent learning is an important aspect of all modules, as it enables students to develop both their subject specific and key skills. Independent learning is promoted through guided study or feedback given to students.
