Teaching

Advanced Control Systems (Postgraduate/Undergraduate)

This module introduces the advanced topics in control systems and the control engineering application in power electronic systems, automotive and robotics design. Topics include stability analysis of nonlinear systems, digital control systems, intelligent systems, model predictive control, adaptive control and variable structure control, estimator design and modeling and real-time simulation. This module will have labs either in the electronics lab, or in the ITL.

Electronic Engineering Mathematics I (Undergraduate)

This module covers linear algebra, vector algebra and analysis, and differential equations. Linear algebra includes: introduction to Matrices, addition of Matrices, multiplication of Matrices, Systems of Equations; Eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Differential Equations cover first and second order D.E, and vector algebra includes field operators and surface and volume integration in different coordinate systems. All topics will be related to engineering applications.

Team Project (Undergraduate)

A group simulation project to be taken by all third year MEng students registered for an MEng programme of study in Electronic Engineering. The module aims to give students experience in: * commercial quality simulation packages * working as a team * problem solving skills * using simulation tools * implementing a design or development project using simulation tools.

Team Project (Undergraduate)

This is a group project where you will undertake an extended examination of a given topic. The assessment will be by group report and group viva, followed by an individual viva where candidates will discuss their contribution. The project tests group-working skills, technical ability and organisation, communication and evaluation skills. This team project, undertaken with supervision from a member of academic staff, requires students to undertake scientific investigation on a chosen research topic. The roles within the group should be complementary and all members will be assessed on both their individual contribution and also on the final group thesis. Group members will have to work together on project management issues (eg efficient and effective division of work) and to plan for the integration of individual contributions in the bigger picture of the team project. The project is seen as an excellent indicator of a student's overall ability to carry out a serious piece of work, and consequently employers are likely to be impressed by competence shown. It will give you a topic of conversation at your job interview. This module is compulsory for the degree title G401 MSci in Computer Science. Online information is available from https://intranet.dcs.qmul.ac.uk/courses/coursenotes/projects/bsc/ Not open to Associate Students.
