First Year: Circuit theory, computers, programming and software engineering are studied and students are introduced to practical experimentation.
Second Year: Analysis of Electrical and Electronic Systems is complemented by further study of Programming and Software Development. The design process is introduced through analogue and digital project assignments. External options may be used to pursue a foreign language in preparation for an exchange visit during the Third Year:.
Third Year: Emphasis turns to design synthesis. Subjects include Energy Systems, Power Electronics, Communications and Signals Processing. Group project in digital/analogue electronics and robotics.
Fourth Year: Options from: Computer and Internet Engineering; Mobile and Digital Communications; Microwaves and Photonics; Real-Time Control and Robotics; Electronics and Microelectronics Manufacturing; Power and High Voltage Engineering; Sustainable Energy Systems; Imaging Science and Technologies; Engineering Management; two group-project modules; Advanced Mathematics; and a five-month industrial placement
Fifth Year: Modules covering topics such as Engineering Systems and Architectures; Advanced Telecommunications; plus further specialist options. The project, normally based on industrial placement work, continues throughout the year and includes a dissertation and presentation of project work.
