    In Depth

    What will I study?

    In Year 1 you will study a set of modules that will provide a solid foundation for the second and third years of your degree. You will study a balanced range of current engineering topics from fundamentals of analysis and construction of systems, to the foundations of engineering mathematics and digital logic circuits. These subjects are focused on the fundamental principles of computation and programming, as well as the mathematical principles that underpin engineering.

    The Year 2 curriculum provides a more specialised focus. You will study modules that allow you to further explore the principles of mathematics for electronic engineering and programming, including signal processing. Year 2 will also introduce new topics encompassing industrial automation and control systems.

    Year 3 offers the opportunity to extend your skillset into more specialist fields of computer vision, security, analytics and management.

    Year 4 develops advanced knowledge and skills. You will complete a research and development project, which may take the form of either an appropriate piece of software or hardware. The emphasis at this level is on the development of independent study and learning.

    How will I study?

    Teaching methods are designed in consultation with leading employers in the region. Many classes are based in computer labs, focusing on student activity as a means of learning. We introduce theoretical concepts by building on concrete practical activity.

    Classes are highly interactive, with practical application of concepts a key factor, as well as cases drawn from real-life. Workshops, seminars, group tutorials and practical exercises provide opportunities for you to work with your peers and develop the essential people skills to complement your technical ability.

    You will be required to attend up to four days a week.

    How will I be assessed?

    You will be assessed through a combination of practical exercises, reports, essays, presentations and examinations. We want you to develop the ability to work effectively both independently and as part of a team, therefore assessment includes both of these forms, though the emphasis is strongly on individual work.

    Who will be teaching me?

    You will be taught by staff who are passionate about student learning and development, as well as benefitting from guest lectures delivered by industry experts. The programme team are specialists in computing and active researchers in areas including complex systems, security, IoT and applied mathematics. Academic staff are regular contributors to academic conferences and journals.
