The rapid growth in the field of Electronic and Communications Engineering and with new and innovative products from the basic household electronic products to the current trend in wireless communications including 3G and 4G mobile phones, wireless networks and Wi-Fi and WiMAX. This BEng Electronics and Communications Engineering education is combined with discipline recognized in the comprehensive engineering professional community and you can be the expertise in the fields of electronic and communication.
This 3 year degree programme has been carefully designed with a strong electronics component to better suit modern-day electrical engineers, this sufficiently covers the important areas such as computing, communications, signal processing, instrumentation, automatic controls, and projects/business management. Because electrical and electronic circuits are present almost every practical systems today. Electronic and communication engineers can easily find employment opportunities in the large reputed industries such as electrical power, energy, manufacturing, automotive, lighting and household appliances, consumer electronics, entertainment, and telecommunication.
First two years of the degree programme is mapped to Pearson BTEC HND in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. At the year 3, students will follow the Final year of BEng (Hons) in Electronic and Communications Engineering degree programme offered by London Metropolitan University.
The module enables students to demonstrate their acquired knowledge and skills through a systematic and creative investigation of a project work, either individually or as part of a group, in accordance with their course requirements. The topic of investigation will cover a broad spectrum of various analysis and techniques and will lead to a comprehensive and concise academic/industry-related report. Students will be assisted in exploring areas that may be unfamiliar to them and encouraged to develop innovative ideas and techniques. Students will be able to choose a project that may require the solution to a specific problem, creation of an artefact in a real-world environment or an investigation of innovative ideas and techniques related to an area within their field of study. Collaboration with outside agencies and projects with industrial, business or research partners/ sponsors will be encouraged
This module provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of a range of digital signal processing techniques including z-transformation, Discrete Fourier Transform, Power Spectral Density and their applications in a variety of scientific fields such as Sonar and Radar, Telecommunications, Medical, Geology and Astronomy. It also provides fundamentals of control systems engineering concepts and develops knowledge and understanding of the various feedback control systems leading to the design of such systems mainly in continuous time but also touches upon discrete-time systems.
This module introduces students to microwave and optoelectronic technologies. It covers the key features of modern microwave wireless systems, their operations and design requirements. Also covered is basic concepts of optoelectronics. Students are shown how various optoelectronic devices are currently used in laser line-of-sight and fibre optic communication systems. The module develops analytical and design knowledge, and provides experience of team working through a group work.
This module extends the digital design techniques learnt at intermediate level to the use of Application Specific Integrated Circuits. It provides an extensive treatment of the use of Virtual Hardware Description Language using the industry’s standard (Xilinx and its associated hardware).
This module reviews a selection of sensors and transducers and the signal conditioning necessary for including these in a data acquisition system. It provides a good grounding on analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversion principles and their practical applications.
The theoretical components of the module are delivered through a series of lectures supported by directed independent learning. The practical aspects are covered in a laboratory programme that requires students to work through a series of exercises, where the scheme of work is designed to encourage co-operative working. The case study integrates theory and practice in a realistic design exercise.
