Electrical and Electronic Engineering - Coventry University

Electrical and electronics engineers perform a critical role in today’s modern world, advancing the technology which drives much of the activity in our everyday lives – from heat, light and power to telecommunications and transport. Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this course aims to enable you to qualify as a Bachelor of Engineering or progress straight to the Master of Engineering award. You will have the opportunity to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary for the generation, distribution, application and control of electrical energy used by industries as diverse as aerospace and automotive, chemical and construction. You’ll have access to state-of-the-art facilities, the chance to apply for placement opportunities at companies which have previously included the National Grid, GlaxoSmithKline, Severn Trent Water and Mercedes Benz, as well as an annual programme of inspiring lectures on contemporary engineering and computing topics presented by the IET and British Computer Society (BCS). **Year 1** The first year is designed to allow students from a wide range of backgrounds to make a solid start on the course; the curriculum lays a firm foundation in the essential subjects of electrical and electronic engineering to motivate and ensure that you are prepared for a detailed study over the full duration of the course, as well as introducing key aspects of computing. Within the subject of electrical engineering, we cover essential electrical circuits and power systems topics to give you the ability to power large computer systems reliably and efficiently, whereas in the study of electronics, we explore digital logic and electronic circuits in computing, together with the fundamentals of computer hardware engineering. **Year 2** The second year introduces specialist application areas, such as control and instrumentation or embedded microprocessors. During this part of the course, you will have the opportunity to participate in a microprocessors group project, which can allow you to apply appropriate theoretical and practical project management methods to design, develop, manufacture, construct, commission, operate, maintain, decommission and recycle engineering processes, systems, services and products. One group developed a fully controlled agricultural environ controlling a multiplicity of factors, such as light, humidity and temperature, to increase horticultural efficiency, while others have developed small robots and their sensory and mobility systems. **Optional Placement Year** Following your second year, you will have the option to apply for a one-year professional work placement or study abroad in a partner institution. Past students have undertaken a variety of placements working, for example, on design and development of vehicle software and electrical systems for Nissan. **Year 3** The final undergraduate year aims to bring students to the level necessary to enter professional practice in electrical and electronic engineering; reflecting both the latest advances and research work in the subject, together with the contemporary jobs market. You will perform a detailed research or design study with the help of an experienced supervisor into a technical aspect from the course. You can choose a topic to suit your interests or to assist your career aspirations. **Additional Year** Should you choose to progress to the Master’s programme, the fourth year of study is designed to provide you with a comprehensive knowledge of scientific principles and mathematics related not only to electrical and electronic engineering, but other related disciplines too, including developing technologies and research.
