Computing, communication & information systems

This module is intended to bring together core content from various Y1 modules in a substantial group design project. The group project involves controlling a mobile robot to navigate to a destination safely and smoothly. This robot is provided as a take-home kit for students to work on this project in their own time. This module also covers important skills needed in the workplace, such as project management and teamwork, as well as other crucial employability skills. This module will introduce principles of modelling of simple continuous dynamical systems.

You’ll also be able to access MS Teams and Zoom through your university account. Carat is partnered with companies including DELL, Leveno and many others to provide you with the technologies available. Companies, therefore, target the School with sandwich year opportunities and a number of companies offer sponsorship, for which there is intense competition. Students seeking sponsorship are urged to consult publications such as Career Research and Development and Engineering Opportunities. Fees are reviewed annually and are likely to take into account inflationary pressures.

The proportion of coursework assessment is approximately 30% to 50% depending on degree course, semester/year and optional modules. Project module assessments require written reports and technical presentations, preparing you for your subsequent career. The aim of the module is to extend the student’s understanding of both theoretical and practical issues in classical Control. Use these in the execution of a research, design and build project in a specialised area of electronic and electrical engineering. The aim of the module is to introduce students to the basic laws, theories and theorems regarding the analysis of linear AC electrical circuits.

  • Topics will include Bayesian decision theory, Artificial Neural Networks and Support Vector Machines .
  • Where courses have specific subject requirements, a score of6or7would normally be required.
  • You will look at the different cryptographic algorithms, considering their use, advantages and disadvantages.
  • The notional workload and the equivalence across types of assessment is standardised.

Further develop methods and tools required for planning and managing an engineering project. The aim of the module is to develop an understanding of the key concepts of digital systems. The aim of this module is to introduce a range of mathematical methods appropriate to the needs of first-year engineering students.

You’ll learn through a combination of lectures, practical labs and tutorials and independent study. By the end of your first year you’ll have learnt the full range of core foundations for control and systems engineering, as well as broader engineering skills. Our teaching is based on a systematic and structured approach to support your learning. ​​The module is designed to introduce engineering students to​ ​key areas of financial and legal risk​ ​that engineers should be aware of in​ ​their working environment. The module will draw directly on practical issues of budgeting, raising finance, assessing financial risks and making financial decisions in the context of engineering projects and/or product development. Through a series of parallel running lectures in the two disciplines, the module will provide a working knowledge of the two areas and how they impinge on engineering practice.
