Modules

Embedded Systems Team Project 1, Programming in C++, Electronic Circuits and Components, Communications Engineering 1, Principles of Sustainable Engineering, Mathematics for Engineering Science 1, Mathematics for Engineering Science 2, Embedded Systems Team Project 2, Software Engineering for Electronics, Communication Engineering 2, Energy Generation, Conversion and Distribution, Control Engineering, Digital Coding and Data Networking, Electronic Materials and Devices

Assessment methods

All taught modules are worth 15 credit units and there are eight of these in all years except the final year (year 3 for the BEng and year 4 for the MEng), when there is an individual project worth 60 credit units. Practical project work forms part of many modules where appropriate to the subject area, and it involves solving a problem using theory developed within the module and electronic circuit building and/or software skills as appropriate. Teaching activities will include lectures, workshops and seminars and practical project work will be carried out in groups and individually in purpose-built thinking and fabrication laboratories.

Various assessment methods will be used including examinations for theoretical subjects, formal presentations, reports and practical demonstrations for project work with an additional viva voce examinations for final year individual projects. Students are expected to review lecture material after lectures to support their learning and to preview laboratory scripts before coming to laboratory sessions. Basic to the industrial workplace is group working, where excellent written and verbal communication skills are highly valued and sought after; these will be developed and assessed formally as part of project-based work.

All students will have an allocated Personal Advisor as someone with whom any issues can be discussed to enable appropriate advice and help to be given as appropriate

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
