    Part 2: Educational Aims of the Programme

    The programme is designed to provide the balance of theoretical and practical understanding needed to meet the demands of the engineering industry for electronic engineering practitioners in a broad range of industries. It combines precise engineering analysis, proven skills in designing circuits and systems and creativity to contribute into the new innovative practices. Thorough academic understandings of scientific and engineering principles are delivered as the main goals using balanced teaching approaches with the mix of mathematical and laboratory experimental work.

  • Part 2: Educational Aims of the Programme

    To produce graduates with a broad understanding of the discipline in conjunction with a detailed understanding of their chosen specialism of electronic engineering. Innovative designs with creative skills are encouraged for real world implementation using both software simulation and the hardware experimental equipment.

    The programme is specialization in Electronic Engineering and produces graduates with a wide range of expertise relevant to the electronics, aerospace and related industries. The programme covers a broad range of disciplines such as digital and analogue circuit design, power electronics, control, signal processing and project management. A number of developments have occurred in electronic engineering in recent times, although signals are analogue in nature, many electrical or electronic designs involve conversion to digital format as soon a possible and processing by microprocessor or digital integrated circuit. In recognition of this, this programme allows students to develop expertise particularly in system design, microprocessor hardware/software design and simulation and modeling techniques. It also contains topics of software engineering, engineering management and business environment.

    The programme has been designed to cater for students with both industrial and/or academic backgrounds, to develop problem solving skills and be able to demonstrate leadership in a number of engineering settings.

    The specific aims are that the graduate shall:

    Gain a sound knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles governing the behaviour of electronic and digital systems and of the related mathematics;

    Be capable of analysis of the behaviour of complex electronic, digital electronic or electrical systems ;

    Demonstrate a capacity for innovative and creative design and be able to draw on knowledge of fundamental principles and proven systems to further develop existing systems and to generate new systems which meet required specifications;

    Have a broad knowledge and understanding of engineering theory, practices and applications and be

    able to use advanced techniques of analysis, synthesis and simulation, and implementation in the field of electronic engineering or electrical engineering,

    Have developed the ability, interest and motivation to conduct independent study and keep abreast of future changes in technology and engineering practices.

    Be able to work in a largely unsupervised way to undertaken an individual research project and present the findings in a professional manner,

    Be able to communicate clearly, concisely and persuasively with individuals and groups, using a professional standard of English, both orally and in writing.

    Demonstrate the leadership and innovative design expertise required of a Master of Engineering.

    Be able to provide solutions to todays industry problems which deepen the students learning of applying engineering principles in a commercial setting.

    Provide with broad specialist technical choices of the engineering to students where they can concentrate to gain the leadership in the respective specialism.

    Gain the management skills in a wide range of business option including finance, entrepreneurship and innovative management strategies.

    Be able to investigate new emerging technologies where data can be extracted to use in unfamiliar

    problems solutions so that innovative design could be created.

    Programme requirements for the purposes of the Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR)

    Designed in conjunction with key national and multi-national employers, the Electronic Engineering programme provides graduates with the mix of skills and capabilities required by UK business for the specification, design and delivery of electronic and embedded systems and solutions, including safety critical systems, as required by the aerospace, transport, medical, military and other industries. Delivered in a way that develops technically competent individuals who think and communicate effectively and who can conduct inquiry, solve problems, undertake critical analysis and deliver effective electronic and embedded software systems solutions in a constantly changing business context. It provides a solid foundation for lifelong learning, emphasising the development of knowledge, skills and professional values essential to the practice of systems development.
