Electrical and Electronic Engineering is principally about the generation, control and application of electrical energy. Electrical and electronic engineers make enormous contributions in terms of technological invention and advancement in an extensive range of specialised fields such as in the automotive and aerospace industries were rapid advancements in technology are taking place example motor drive solutions via digital signal controllers. Similarly in civil engineering large projects such as the introduction of high speed trains require electrical and electronic engineers, equally there are innumerable other fields where electrical and electronic engineers make significant contributions. Graduates of this course are well prepared to take on challenges in the aforementioned fields of engineering and science typically progressing to lead/senior engineers, Chartered Engineer’s and if research inclined Doctors of Philosophy (PhD).
Engineering Foundation Year
This programme provides a generic engineering route of study enabling students to access the first year (Level 4) of a range of degree programmes. It will provide a foundation of core knowledge that students on successful completion can apply to their chosen future engineering degree programme. Additionally, the programme aim to develop the students English Language Skills and equip them with academic and professional skills that are essential to their success in the flowing years.
Learning will be facilitated through a variety of methods, which may include lectures, seminars, lab, workshops, online activities and group work. Students are expected to engage in both class and online activities and discussions. This module also requires students to participate in additional guided reading and self-directed study to reinforce the learning gained from timetabled sessions. Formative assessment will be used to prepare students for summative assessment and give students an early indication of their progress towards the course intended learning outcomes.
