What will I learn?

Overview of the Programme

Electrical & Electronic engineering is now an important part of many cutting-edge industries.

In the automotive industry, for example, electrical & electronic engineers are required to design engine control units, dashboard indicators, air-conditioning, safety, braking, and infotainment systems.

Electrical & Electronic engineers are also involved with signalling and advanced railway control systems, as well as telecoms, for mobile phone applications. There are also many roles for them in the energy industries, for example, designing and running complex control systems such as those needed to run the National Grid or to control a nuclear power station.

Electrical & Electronic engineering graduates are also desired for the fast moving consumer goods industry e.g. development of the latest smart screens and the use of intelligent transducers in both industrial and a home automation environment.

To prepare students for these fast-changing roles, the programme covers design, modelling and test algorithms for complex assemblies. Analysis of circuit design for both low and high frequencies is an important element of the course content.

Software development is an integral part of a modern Electrical & Electronic Engineers role and to support this, software tools such as VEE, MULTISIM and MATLAB are used extensively in the course. Consideration of sustainability, compliance with RoHS directives and obsolescence solutions are also considered.

Key Course Features

  • Specialism's within this programme feature modern power electronics and drive systems combined with their controlling mechanisms and modelling using MATLAB and state space models.

Assessment and Teaching

You will be assessed throughout your course through a variety of methods including portfolios, presentations and, for certain subjects, examinations.

Teaching and Learning

Teaching methods include lectures, laboratory sessions, student-led seminars and guided research.

Independent learning is an important aspect of all modules, as it enables students to develop both their subject specific and key skills.

Independent learning is promoted through guided study or feedbacks given to students.

Wrexham Glyndŵr University is committed to supporting our students to maximise their academic potential.

Career Prospects

The course equips you with a thorough knowledge and skills in engineering at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. Graduates will be well placed to become subject specialists within industry or to pursue research careers within academia.
