We are seeing an increased skill shortage in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, with many employers finding it difficult to source suitably skilled and qualified graduates.
This course provides students with a highly desirable degree pathway, studied alongside the established and successful Computer Systems and Electronics streams. Students can thus benefit from state of the art Digital Signal processing and Digital Synthesis Development Systems as well as studying core areas such as Circuit Design and Analysis, Engineering Management; Analogue, Digital and Power electronics
The School is equipped with state-of-the-art development systems made possible by large equipment donations from Xilinx and Texas Instruments, which give you the chance to gain first-hand experience of the best technology currently in use in industry.
