Analogue Electronic Systems (Undergraduate)

This is a Level 4 module introducing you to electronic devices, components, circuits and simple systems. There is particular emphasis on the basic theorems and techniques of electric circuit theory in relation to simple a.c. and d.c. circuits in order to provide a sound theoretical background to both analogue and digital modules in subsequent semesters.

Digital Circuit Design (Undergraduate)

The module covers: Number Systems and Codes; Boolean Algebra and Basic Logic Functions; MAP minimisation; Combinational Logic; Synchronous Sequential Logic; VHDL

Digital Electronics and Computer Systems (Science and Engineering Foundation Programming)

This module will introduce SEFP students to basic electronics, with a focus on digital and programmable systems. This module follows on from SEF034 Computing, which introduces basic programming skills and seeks to look below the abstract level at which most computers are programmed and ask 'how are computers created?'.

Electric and Magnetic Fields (Undergraduate)

This module covers the basic laws of electric and magnetic fields, their application to elementary problems involving steady and time changing fields and currents, and an introduction to electromagnetic radiation. The Maxwell Equations, which explain the relationships between time varying electric and magnetic fields, will be introduced. The emphasis is on physical intuition and visualisation supported by mathematical modelling and analysis and labs.

Electronic Devices and Applications (Undergraduate)

This module describes the physical basis behind common semiconductor devices including the pn junction diode, bipolar junction transistor, MOSFET and related devices (NMOS, PMOS, CMOS) and Operational Amplifiers. Basic circuits using these devices are discussed including rectifiers, amplifiers, inverters, integrators, differentiators, and summing circuits.

Skills for Robotics Engineering (Undergraduate)

This module is designed to support first year students on the MEng Robotics Engineering programme through the transition from school to university. It will provide students with the opportunity to work with others to develop and share basic practical skills that underpin many first year modules and beyond, foster a sense of enquiry and intellectual curiosity, develop basic graduate attributes that underpin effective student learning, and prepare and encourage students to obtain some work / voluntary experience at an early stage in order to enhance their employability.
