About this course
Mixing taught theory and practical work, this Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)-accredited course explores everything from analogue and digital electronics to microwave communications and digital signal processing – leaving you well prepared for chartered engineer status.
In the first year you’ll develop a firm grounding in maths and circuitry, before getting to grips with analogue, digital and microcomputer systems.
You’ll develop your skills with industry software as well as key professional skills and manufacturing techniques, before going on to study embedded systems and data communications in your second year.
In your final year you’ll focus on electronic design for industry and research, and carry out an extensive project based on your own interests.
