Course Summary

Electronics is at the heart of a wide range of business and entertainment systems. The integration of computing and communications with interactive digital media is evident in many modern innovations that are creating a revolution in business and the life of individuals. These systems are vital to the growth of the global economy; reducing costs, improving quality and providing ever more sophisticated services. All aspects of business, from research and development to production, marketing and sales, benefit from rapid advances in such technology. Our social lives, entertainment and education are also enhanced by continuing advances in personal electronic systems, media compression and seamless connectivity using communications systems. This degree programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you will need to play a leading part in the future research, development and application of these technologies. The wide range of modules allows you to create a personalised study package and your individual project is an opportunity for you to develop your specialist knowledge even further. Some projects are undertaken in collaboration with companies and, in some cases, you may work on company premises investigating issues of direct concern to future product development. Example projects include wireless access systems, 3G mobile radio for light aircraft and wearable computing.
