Course Introduction

**Why study this course?**

This is a four-year degree course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0). It's the perfect route into university if you can't meet the necessary entry requirements or don't have the traditional qualifications required to start a standard undergraduate degree. You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.

**More about this course**

Addressing the skills-shortage in the area of intelligent hardware/software systems and applied robotics, this career-focused course aims to equip you with the key skills needed to succeed as a well-rounded professional who is ready to work in cutting-edge computing and engineering sectors.

One of the key strengths of the course is its practical nature, which will allow you to develop hands-on skills and expertise. The course is supported by a number of specialised laboratories in general electronics, microwave and satellite communications, computer-aided design (CAD), embedded systems and digital systems and opto-electronics.

When studying any of our specialised modules you will spend a considerable part of the module in these laboratories and this will provide you with an opportunity to practice what you learn in your lectures and seminar sessions. Using an industry-standard simulation package you will investigate, design, implement, test and document a variety of real-world examples of electronics and communications systems. These sessions are performed individually or as part of a group.

You will gain the skills that employers are looking for and will also acquire relevant experience through a work placement in a real client-driven project in the work-related learning module. The course will also help you develop interpersonal, team working and engineering skills alongside commercial, ethical and environmental awareness.
