    • Academic excellence for business and the professions Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Professor Panos Liatsis
    • Welcome to City!
    • Who studies at City? • Around 13,000 students from all over the world – 1500 on Engineering and Technology related subjects – Around 300 on Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE) subjects • Gender of students: 22% Female and 78% Male • Status of students: 60% UK, 11% EU and 28% Overseas • All ages – majority of undergraduates aged 18 - 30 • All cultural backgrounds and walks of life
    • What is an Engineer? • someone who fixes your car, your house electrics or boiler? • someone who ‘does engineering’ ? • an ‘applied scientist’? The Engineering Council says: “engineering is the practice of creating and sustaining services, systems, devices, machines, structures, processes and products to improve the quality of life; getting things done more effectively and efficiently”
    • What is an Engineer? • Almost everything around you is there because of an engineer – If an engineer didn’t design it, then an engineer made it fit-for- purpose! • Engineers make things work – We are more interested in ‘how it works’ than ‘why is it so’ – We exploit scientific knowledge to achieve goals – We make decisions based on incomplete information
    • Interpretation of limited, incorrect or contradictory information Trials Reverse Engineering and product improvement Risk Assessment Management Measurement and analysis of system behaviour Teaching Market analysis Changing the world! Development and application of mathematical models Technology Development Design Research Some examples of the roles of an Engineer
    • What do I need to know to be an Engineer?
    • What do I need to know to be an Engineer? • Engineering Science – Mechanics – Electricity – Magnetism – Fluids – Thermodynamics – Waves and light • Engineering Practice – Design – Communication – Team work – Management • Engineering Analysis – Mathematics – Computing – Problem solving
    • What do I need to know to be an Engineer? • Specialist topics! – Electronics – Renewable Energy – Electric Circuits – Dynamics and Control – Signals and Communications – Image Processing – Web Design – Video Editing – Networks – Biomedical Instrumentation – Anatomy and Physiology – Languages!
    • Electrical and Electronics Engineering • BEng Programmes in – Electrical and Electronics Engineering – Computer Systems Engineering – Telecommunications Engineering • MEng Programme in – Electrical and Electronics Engineering • Accredited by – Institution of Engineering and Technology – Institute of Measurement and Control
    • Biomedical Engineering • BEng/MEng Programme in – Biomedical Engineering • Accredited by – Institution of Engineering and Technology – Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine – Institute of Measurement and Control
    • Interdisciplinary • BEng Programme in – Engineering with Management and Entrepreneurship
    • Course details 7-8 modules every year Each module has a practical component Support available for industrial placement after year 2 Courses provide a good balance of electronics, computing, science, management and mathematics Group and design projects part of the course EE / CSE / Telecom programmes have common 2 years Excellent University services: career advice, library, personal development Access to first class research
    • Why study electronic engineering and related areas? Challenging career Range of options after graduation Respectable income Creative profession Intellectual Development Discovery Helping Society
    • Why City University London? Long Tradition Research and Teaching excellence 83% of student completely satisfied 2010 NSS (75% sector average) 14th in the UK in RAE 2007 Courses fully accredited In top 10 Universities in the UK for employability Creative international atmosphere Excellent links with local industry for student placements Small and friendly environment Excellent facilities
    • Industrial Placement Student: Amardeep Course: Computer System Engineering Company: BBC / Siemens (Maidenhead) Job Title: Junior Software Developer Role: Developing Streaming software for BBC website (single most accessed website outside of USA). Skills acquired: Detailed knowledge of Microsoft.Net technology. Comments: “I am currently in talks with a company about the video conferencing system that I developed for my final year project. I have allowed them to license my product”.
    • Industrial Placement Students: Gavin & Abi Course: Computer System Engineering Job Title: Support tester Role: Functional software testing. Skills acquired: Detailed knowledge of Java and software testing procedures.  Accenture provides a $4000 training budget for each placement student.
