Why study this course?

This career-focused course is designed to help you kick-start your career in a range of industrial sectors that require you to use internet connected electronic and cyber-physical systems. It will equip you to work in areas such as aeronautics, automotive, defence, smartphones, telecommunications and with medical devices and railway systems. 

You could also progress to further postgraduate study such as a master’s degree or MPhil/PhD.

More about this course

Businesses around the world view the lack of skill and knowledge of Internet of Things (IoT) within their workforce as one of the biggest obstacles to using it more extensively. Consequently the demand for graduates with knowledge and skills in electronics and IoT is rapidly growing.

The course is supported by several specialised laboratories in general electronics, IoT, high frequency communications, computer-aided design (CAD), embedded systems and digital systems and opto-electronics.

When studying any of our specialised modules you will spend a considerable part of the module in these laboratories and this will provide you with an opportunity to practice what you learn in your lectures and seminar sessions. Using an industry-standard simulation package you will investigate, design, implement, test and document a variety of real-world examples of electronics and communications systems. These sessions are performed individually or as part of a group.

You will gain the skills that employers are looking for and will also acquire relevant experience through a work placement in a real client-driven project in the work-related learning module. The course will also help you develop interpersonal, team working and engineering skills alongside commercial, ethical and environmental awareness.

Assessment

You'll be assessed through coursework reports, case studies, individual and group research assignments, written and laboratory-based examinations and a final engineering project or dissertation. You'll receive regular, supportive feedback throughout the course.
