These programmes cover digital and analogue circuit design, programming, microprocessors and communications systems. Emphasis is placed on systems and the design of digital and analogue circuits using advanced software tools. You may study very large'scale integration (VLSI), communication systems and digital signal processing (DSP). A design and build group project is taken in the second year and develops team'working skills. The final individual project allows you to tackle in depth a topic of your choice. The Industrial Experience option enables you to spend a year working in industry.
