The increased need for communications in modern day society has led to the development of a complex global communication infrastructure that uses the latest wireless and wired technologies for the communication of information.
To keep up with the increasing demands placed on this infrastructure requires engineers with the latest knowledge of and skills in current and emerging technologies.
Studying this course enables you to gain an advanced understanding of current telecommunications and electronic systems and acquire the skills necessary for their design, development and maintenance.
You study key technical areas such as digital electronics and communications with the option of selecting management modules to develop your project and managerial ability.
A number of option modules ranging from artificial intelligence to software engineering allow you to focus your studies towards your career aspirations and tailor the course to your requirements.
As well as improving your technical skills and knowledge, we also focus on building wider professional skills, such as planning, research techniques and promoting innovation.
We emphasise learning through practical investigations and problem solving, where you explore the complex issues that are typical of modern telecommunication systems typically through real world case studies. You complete a major project, supported by a project tutor, in an area of your choice allowing you to focus on a topic that can contribute to your career aims.
• advanced control methods • applicable artificial intelligence • communication engineering • computer networks • control of linear systems • microprocessor engineering • digital signal processing • group project – international product development • network applications • object-oriented methods • operating systems • software engineering • machine vision • embedded systems • mixed signal design • electrical energy systems • efficient machines and electromagnetic applications.
One of the primary motivations in developing this course is to enhance your employability or to allow you to progress to higher levels of study such as academic research.
You can consider employment in a number of areas of telecommunications and electronics at senior and management level or alternatively undertake further study by working towards a research degree and pursue a career possibly in academia.
