This course provides the opportunity to obtain the skills required to develop and commercialise new technologies in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Students will have an invaluable chance to work with experts in both engineering and business, providing an excellent basis for those engineers who wish to commercialise their ideas or graduates who wish to develop their knowledge of management and entrepreneurship in a high tech environment.
The course brings together strengths and resources from of both the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Nottingham University Business school. As will have invaluable chance to experience the steps necessary to commercialise a technical idea, this programme provides an excellent basis for the engineers who wish to commercialise their ideas or graduates who wish to explore the exciting world of commercialisation.
The course provides an excellent basis for engineers who wish to update their knowledge in this area, or students/engineers who wish to go on to do research or study for a PhD degree, as well as first degree students who would like to enhance their training.
Students will develop:
the skills required to develop and commercialise new technologies in electrical and electronic engineering
the ability to plan and undertake a research project and work in a team environment
interpersonal, communication and professional skills
the ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports
an awareness of contemporary problems in the fields of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and both present and futuristic approaches to their solutions
Following the successful completion of the taught modules, a group research project is undertaken during the summer term.
The project will demand the completion of a major piece of commercialisation work on an advanced technical topic.
Previous research projects on this course have included:
Industrial cure monitoring in the automobile and aerospace industries
Assessment of market potential for embedded ultrasonic sensors for structural health monitoring
Commercial opportunity for novel capsule endoscopes
Commercial assessment of portable laser Doppler blood flow monitors
