Course Presentation: Electronic & Computer Engineering

  1. 1. BRUNEL UNIVERSITY LONDON Electronic and Computer Engineering
  2. 2. Staff and Students • Staff:  43 Academic Staff  10 Administrative Staff  15 Technical Staff • Students:  500 Undergraduate Students  150 Postgraduate MSc Students  170 Research Students
  3. 3. Undergraduate Programmes Three main teaching areas: • Electronic Engineering  BEng and MEng programmes • Computer Systems Engineering  BEng and MEng programmes • Digital Media  BSc programmes
  4. 4. BEng Electronics Courses Broad based courses which aim to produce well rounded electronic engineers with high levels of analytical and engineering design skills Common first year grounding in all electronic engineering disciplines, with increasing content of either electrical, communications or computer engineering in years 2 and 3 • BEng Electronic and Electrical Engineering • BEng Electronic and Communications Engineering • BEng Electronic and Computer Engineering
  5. 5. Electronic Engineering • You are: • Our courses cover:  Analogue and digital electronics, microelectronics and microprocessors, digital signal processing, sensors, instrumentation, control systems, embedded systems, telecommunications, mobile and wireless systems, management and professional skills “interested in the future of electronics equipment and products that are a vital part of our daily lives”
  6. 6. Electronic Engineering • You will be:  An architect and implementer of the technological revolution
  7. 7. BEng Computer Systems Courses • BEng Computer Systems Engineering • BEng Computer Systems Engineering (Networks) • BEng Computer Systems Engineering (Software) The aim of this course is to provide professional engineers who have the required skills to design the next generation of computer systems By selecting suitable final year modules and a relevant project, students may elect to graduate with one of the specialist ‘Networks’ or ‘Software’ degrees
  8. 8. Computer Systems Engineering • You are: • Our courses cover:  Digital systems and microprocessors, web design, programming, data networks and security, computer architecture and interfacing, multimedia design, object-oriented programming, distributed systems design, management and professional skills “interested in the interface between hardware and software and using technology to enhance our lives”
  9. 9. Computer Systems Engineering • You will be:  An architect and implementer of the next generation of computer systems

  11. 11. MEng Courses • Aim to produce graduates equipped to play leading roles in related industries:  First two years follow the BEng programmes  Third year similar to BEng but with 1 or 2 specialised modules (programme specific)  Final year includes specialised technical modules and a more wide-ranging interdisciplinary group project with an industrial and/or commercial involvement
  12. 12. MEng Courses • All MEng programmes have a related BEng programme:  The corresponding BEng course for MEng Electrical Engineering with Renewable Energy Systems is BEng Electronic and Electrical Engineering • Students may change from BEng to MEng at the end of Level 2 if performing at the required standard
