Electronic and Communications Engineering (H647 / H645)
Electronic communications engineering underpins many of the everyday activities that we all take for granted, such as listening to TV or radio, cooking a snack in the microwave oven, text messaging, shopping with a credit card, the internet and air travel.
Because of the diversity of applications for communications engineering, there is a buoyant market for graduates with the necessary background and skills to cope with this very dynamic and fast moving area of engineering. It is the aim of Electronic and Communications Engineering therefore to give you firstly a solid background in the basics of the subject, since these will not change over the course of your career. Secondly we also introduce you to aspects of current and near future technology, since these will help you in the first few years of your career.
As with all our degrees, the technical knowledge and skills of this course are supplemented by important transferable skills, such as project management, interpersonal and presentational skills. Our aim is to produce a rounded graduate who has had a balanced education in both theoretical and practical aspects of the subject.
