Course Summary

Overview

This programme is designed as a specialised extension to the study of Electronics at undergraduate level. The programme provides students with the opportunity to deepen their understanding and develop specialist expertise in a range of advanced electronics subjects including microelectronics, sensors, signal processing, hardware and software design, communications, and digital systems.

Electronics Highlights

World Class Facilities

Our facilities have recently undergone a £10m refurbishment and include laboratories for Microengineering, Electronics, Communications, Circuits, Instrumentation, Virtual Reality, Software Engineering, Renewable Energy, Power and Machines. The Queen's Advanced Micro-engineering Centre (QAMEC) is a Centre of Excellence for research and development employing silicon technology and MEMS technology.

Internationally Renowned Experts

An example of our research includes our work in the area of space technologies, where we are involved in a number of projects with the European Space Agency, the new UK Space Applications Catapult Centre, the European High Power Radio-Frequency Space Laboratory and companies such as Astrium, Thales and QinetiQ.

Modules

You will learn how to design a stabilising model predictive controller (MPC), which is an advanced control methodology used in modern control applications (robotics, process industry, aerospace, automotive, etc). We will also give an introduction to probability and statistics and learn the basics of estimation theory, with special focus on the Kalman filter and nonlinear state estimation methodologies. The module includes lab sessions where the students acquire hands-on experience in the applications of control and estimation theory.
