This course is designed to help you take your place in the communications industry, focusing on building your skills to start a fulfilling career. On the course you’ll be taught by professional engineers. Many of them have worked in industry, while others have specialised in research. We’ll give you the chance to gain a broad overview of electronic engineering, as well as specialist skills in communications as the course progresses. We’ll also take a wider view to explore other areas of electrical, electronic and computer systems engineering. Year 1 of the course is designed to support you in gaining a through grounding in the principles of electronic engineering. In Year 2 you’ll begin to specialise in communications, from basic methods such as AM or FM through to digital communications. In Year 3 you have the chance to spend a year working in industry gaining great experience. Then in your Final Year you’ll be supported to expand your knowledge, by looking at topics such as optical communications. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. Once you graduate, you could become registered as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). The course could also lead on to you gaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status following further study. While you’re studying at Huddersfield, you’ll have the chance to spend a placement year working in the industry. It could help you gain some really useful skills, and some handy contacts in your chosen field too.
