Year 2

The second year develops the themes of the first year,  combines them with a broadening view of the field and introduces subjects such as:-

  • control concepts
  • power and energy management
  • communications
  • electromagnetic wave propagation

All of these subject areas are supported by laboratory assignments that involve working with hardware as well as circuit and system simulation software.

A typical laboratory exercise in the second-year is the “Radio-Frequency Modem” project to design and build an operational wireless link between two computers (much like the Bluetooth connections used on mobiles and laptops). This is an industrially-relevant topic, and the exercises bring together many aspects of the curriculum from circuit and filter design to communications and radio antenna performance.

We get a lot of support during our projects and modules from postgraduate students and lecturers, so you always feel like you can get the most out of any learning experience.
