BSc (Hons) Electronic Engineering

Course Overview

The course will provide you with academic and technical skills to analyse, interpret and make sense of the electronics engineering. It will enable you to meet the demands of tomorrow’s electronics engineering.

You will develop skills in analogue and digital electronics, signal processing, sensors, control systems, digital communications, software engineering and embedded programming. The emphasis on relevant techniques, algorithms, tools and skills will then be put to practice with opportunities to participate in genuine Research and Development projects. Through a combination of theoretical learning and practical application, you will become capable of solving real-world engineering problems.

This course provides the opportunities for gaining hands-on experience in computer software and hardware toolkits that are commonly used in electronic engineering and opportunities for students to be involved in real-world R&D projects.

Assessment methods

The assessments are designed to assist students in meeting the required learning outcomes and their own learning needs in relation to each unit.

The assessments provide you with opportunities to diagnose their skills, abilities, academic/occupational background and level to give you an early indication of what specific learning practices may help you more in some particular areas of study, starting from student induction period in conjunction with Fundamentals of Computing unit and throughout the entire in-course period of study. There will be frequent opportunities to get feedback both from tutors, peers and via self-assessment, and some assessments will allow for draft submissions to be considered by a tutor or peers to identify aspects in need of development prior to final hand-in.

The assessments are to be inclusive such that a variety of methods will be used in assessing students to ensure that no particular group of students are advantaged or disadvantaged. The methods include portfolios, laboratory practical work, group and individual production projects, individual and group written reports and formal written exams.

Mini-projects and case studies provide you with real-world problems. You are expected to find solutions to the problems following the process of analysis, technique evaluation, design and syntheses, and solution evaluation.

These min-projects and case studies are designed in both group work and individual work fashions to allow you to practice your communication skills and team working skills, and to develop the capability of working individually. They are also design in the way in which you need to connect together different elements taught within a unit and also across different units with helps from the course team who explain to you how individual units make-up of the course.

Written exams focus on theoretical knowledge and the application of the knowledge to engineering problems.

Progression route

Post-graduate study, for example Taught Masters courses in in Electronics Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering and Computer System Engineering.

Career opportunities

The critical, theoretical, analytical and practical skills of this degree will prepare you for a range of careers. The most common destination will be in industries dealing with electronics system design, for instance as electronics engineer or design engineer. You may as well work for companies that provide solutions for electronics system design, for instance in communication system, measurement equipment, audio and video system and radar system.
