Course summary

Electronics and computers are all around us and developments in both can have a big impact in our daily lives. ‘Invisible computers’ help to operate everyday equipment like supermarket scanners, central heating timers and car management systems, but also larger systems such as, diagnostic equipment used in hospitals, broadband and satellites. This STEM course has been designed to help you understand how electronics and computers work together, and could help you gain a job at the forefront of technological developments to meet the ever-increasing demand for new sustainable solutions to improve society and everyday life. The aim of the course is to develop your understanding of: * Computer systems architectures * Networks * Internet of Things (IoT) * Embedded systems IoT is a network of physical objects (devices, vehicles, buildings etc) which are embedded with electronics, software and sensors, enabling them to collect and exchange data. We’ll look at software and hardware and how they are designed for embedded systems. And you’ll have the chance to understand the principles of electronic engineering and develop the skills to be able to work in a wide range of industries. The course also covers areas of electrical, electronic and communication engineering enabling you to develop expertise in a variety of electronics and electrical engineering areas. This means you can explore different areas of the subject and if you find you are particularly interested in one area you can tailor your studies towards that. During your studies you have the chance to take a placement after your second year. You could work in the industry and put what you’ve learnt into practice. We’ll also give you the opportunity to take part in national competitions like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student,Railway Challenge and UAS (or comparable design and build team projects). It’s accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. That means you could become a registered Incorporated Engineer (IEng) if you graduate, and following further learning you could also be on your way to becoming a registered Chartered Engineer (CEng). You might like to hear what Philippa has to say about studying Electronic and Electrical Engineering BEng(Hons) at the University of Huddersfield - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCNNgF6vHtI We’re not all about lectures, we’re also about lab work, most of your modules will contain substantial practical elements, so you’ll be in a lab working with equipment, taking measurements and perhaps writing code. I enjoy interacting with students in the lab sessions, posing questions then discussing and experimenting with the solutions. I love student led discussions that challenge me, it makes me think of things in different ways. ~ Dr Haydn Martin, Senior Lecturer. Professional links and accreditation: This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) (http://www.theiet.org/) and fully meets the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) (https://www.imeche.org/membership-registration/become-a-member/incorporated-engineer), and partly meets the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). The IET is one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community and IET accreditation is recognised around the world as an indicator of quality. Our relationship with the IET means they feel our course content is relevant to the needs of industry, which could give you a potential advantage when looking for a job as employers may ask for graduates with accredited degrees. This accreditation is reviewed on a regular basis.
