Year Two Modules
- Modelling and Analysis II
This module covers series and transforms, partial differential equations for engineers, vector calculus, matrices and Eigenvectors/values, and statistics.
- Design and Professional Practice II
This module provides students with an understanding of the engineering process and practice in carrying it out. The course will provide the engineering skills our students need to succeed in engineering careers in research and/or industry.
- Analog Electronics
This module provides students with a good introduction to the analysis of standard circuit configurations including feedback circuits and the design of advanced circuits such as operational-amplifiers and oscillators.
- Digital Design
This module introduces students to the design process for hardware based digital solutions such as FPGAs and ASICs and software based microprocessor solutions.
- Semiconductor Devices
This module extends the insight into the solid state and devices established in First Year and considers the principles of state-of-the-art silicon diode and transistor operation. A range of devices are studied including current industry standards for fabrication, including economic consideration and the impact of nanotechnology on current and future devices.
- Communications Systems
This module introduces students to the principles of digital communications systems. The module covers both the theory and practice of communications systems and schemes.
- Programming II
This module aims to extend the students' programming skills and introduce them to Java-based object-oriented design and programming, providing the foundations for design and programming in any other object-oriented environment.
- Electromagnetic Theory
This module provides a fundamental understanding of electromagnetic waves and their properties in free space and waveguides in order to enable the analysis and design of high frequency electronic systems and components.
This module provides an introduction to the interaction of optical signals with materials, and to the design of optoelectronic devices and systems.
