The MEng allows you to study your areas of interest in more depth and also gives you the time to widen your knowledge of both Electrical and Electronic Engineering and other subjects including management. This degree leads more directly to Chartered Engineer status than the equivalent BEng (Hons) programme and it is the choice programme for a career in engineering management. On H607 you will spend Year Three on placement in industry. The first two years of the MEng and BEng programmes are identical and there is some flexibility to allow switching between programmes, although a higher academic performance is expected for the MEng. In the third year you study core subjects including Analogue and Digital Communications, Embedded Computer Architecture and Total Quality Management. In the final year the core subjects are Advanced Signal Processing, Information Theory and Coding, Management of Design and Management of Product Development. In both years you also choose additional lectures from a list of about 30 module options. Practical project work is very important and you will do a group project in Year Three followed by a major individual project in the final year. Previous group projects have included the design of an inexpensive heart monitor for use on horses in an outdoor situation. A previous individual project was the production of automation software for ‘system on chip’ design for a major silicon chip design company.
