Analogue Electronic Systems (Undergraduate)

This is a Level 4 module introducing you to electronic devices, components, circuits and simple systems. There is particular emphasis on the basic theorems and techniques of electric circuit theory in relation to simple a.c. and d.c. circuits in order to provide a sound theoretical background to both analogue and digital modules in subsequent semesters.

Design and Build Project in Electronic Engineering (Undergraduate)

A group project for second-year electronic engineering students to enable them to learn practical skills in solving engineering problems using electronics. Not open to Associate Students or students from other departments.

Design and Build Project in Robotics Engineering (Robotics II) (Undergraduate)

The second year Design & Build Project is a group-based exercise planned for the whole module that mainly focuses on technical skills related to the design and development of a robotics-oriented project including hardware and software components and also the interfaces between these two sub-systems. The module will also introduce team work and group-based soft skills ranging from project planning and demonstration setting to project management and leadership. Generally, projects are divided into two phases with clear inter-link between the various components and tasks set for the groups.

Digital Electronics and Computer Systems (Science and Engineering Foundation Programming)

This module will introduce SEFP students to basic electronics, with a focus on digital and programmable systems. This module follows on from SEF034 Computing, which introduces basic programming skills and seeks to look below the abstract level at which most computers are programmed and ask 'how are computers created?'.

Electronic Devices and Applications (Undergraduate)

This module describes the physical basis behind common semiconductor devices including the pn junction diode, bipolar junction transistor, MOSFET and related devices (NMOS, PMOS, CMOS) and Operational Amplifiers. Basic circuits using these devices are discussed including rectifiers, amplifiers, inverters, integrators, differentiators, and summing circuits.

Introduction to Business Information Systems (Science and Engineering Foundation Programming)

The module balances business and technical aspects but adopts a high-level view, aiming for example to explain the purpose and use of databases rather than develop specific skills in database query or design. Alongside learning the basic ideas of programming, this module provides an introduction to the context of much IT.

Professional and Research Practice (Undergraduate)

This module provides you with the opportunity to examine the role of engineering in society and the expectations of society for a professional engineer. During the module, you should develop and achieve a level of written and spoken communication expected of a professional engineer. You will also construct a personal development plan (PDP) and an on-going employability skills folder. The assessment of the module is 100 per cent coursework, broken down as follows: oral presentation: 25 per cent; in-class essay: 25 per cent; PDP folder: 25 per cent; employability folder: 25 per cent. Not open to Associate Students or students from other departments.
