Internet. In addition, you will gain related analytical skills that can be applied in designing modern communication systems and information networks.
• Analogue Electronics Circuits 20 credits
This module provides an introduction to the principles of high frequency electronics and to familiarise you with the theory and application of analogue building blocks for high- frequency applications.
It will enable you to gain an in-depth understanding of power electronic devices and analysing power electronic circuits.
➢ Individual Honours Project (BEng Only) 40 credits
The purpose of the module is to enable you to undertake a sustained, in-depth and research-informed project exploring an area that is of personal interest to you. In agreement with your supervisor, you will decide upon your topic which will take the form of a practical outcome (artefact) with accompanying contextual material. The main consideration when choosing your topic is that it must be aligned to the programme you are studying, and you should consider the relevance of this topic to your future academic or professional development .
At this level, you will be expected to work independently but you will receive additional one-to-one support from your supervisor, who will be familiar with your chosen topic area. As you progress on the module, extra support will be available and this may take the form of group seminars, workshops and online materials that will help to develop your project.
Year4: In order to complete this programme a student must successfully complete all the following CORE modules (totalling 120 credits):
➢ Digital Microelectronics and Hardware Description Languages 20 credits
The aim of this module is to allow you to develop an appropriate knowledge of the use of hardware description languages for digital design such that on completion of the module you will able to specify, design, implement and test digital circuitry implemented in FPGA, CPLD and other programmable digital devices. The module has been designed to provide you with a high level of practical work to consolidate the theoretical aspects and improve employment options.
➢ Control Engineering 20 credits
The module utilises the mathematical concepts such as transform calculus and matrix theory used to model systems using both the transfer function and state-space paradigms. You will then be able to design controllers for linear systems using time and frequency
