Course summary

From the tiny processors in smartphones to the heavy-duty power electronics in wind turbines, electronic and electrical systems underpin many modern technologies.In today's world of complex, high-speed devices, it is important that engineers understand how to design and implement both the hardware and software of general-purpose and embedded computer systems. **Why joint honours?**Electronics and computer science are a fascinating and highly valuable combination for a joint honours degree. Interactions between these fields have generated some of the most significant advances in computer design and communications technology over the last 50 years. Students of electronics and computer science need a clear understanding of physics and the broader system it operates in. Teamwork and the determination to find ingenious solutions are also crucial.Graduates are spearheading advances in fields such as:* technology for medicine* efficiency in transportation* safety monitoring systems* surveillance* entertainment* wireless communications* manufacturing and computing* renewable energy generation**Ties to industry** Our Industrial Liaison Board includes senior representatives from important electronics and electrical engineering companies. This has influenced our curriculum and programme development.
