Course summary

About the course

This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

This course, for graduates with a background in electronics, was designed with industry experts and is ideal for those aiming to enter a range of specialist careers in digital electronics or communications.

Gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in digital communications, signal processing, electronic circuits and microprocessors, as well as an understanding of engineering best practice and how to apply it in real-life scenarios.

How will I be assessed?

The subject of electronic engineering involves the development of enhanced knowledge and understanding of technical concepts combined with the ability to apply these concepts with practical real world environments. With this is mind an assessment strategy that makes use of the most appropriate assessment technique (be that a written report, research essay, practical laboratory exercise, practical log book, presentation etc.) has been chosen. The assessment methods for each unit on the course have been chosen as the best way for you to demonstrate that you have acquired the requisite technical knowledge and that you can apply this knowledge within a variety of real world context.

In line with University guidelines each unit is assessed using two assessment points. In most cases this will involve the completion of a practical-based piece of work (typically a coursework assignment with a practical element) and a more formal assessment (typically a formal examination). Further information regarding the assessments used within a unit can be found within the relevant Unit Information Form for the unit. Your will be required to have successfully pass all taught units before undertaking the project.

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

Intermediate qualifications available:

  • Postgraduate certificate – 60 credits at Masters level
  • Postgraduate diploma – 120 credits at Masters level

There are six entry points through the year. This allows you to start when it is most suitable.
