This course is designed for students who have obtained a BTEC Higher National Diploma and wish to continue their studies to degree level to become Incorporated Engineers. If you have the right pre-requisites you may continue for an additional semester and gain an Honours level BSc degree.
You'll study a balanced programme of modules alongside students on the BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. In semester one, the modules are at Level 2 and the rest of the modules are at Level 3.
You'll gain wide experience of using industry standard equipment and simulation packages, learning to use the latest computer interfacing technologies in our National Instruments laboratory. Sponsored by National Instruments, the laboratory contains virtual instrument workstations using Labview software and NI Elvis hardware prototyping boards. Students use these workstations for designing and testing electronic circuits.
You'll also develop skills enabling you to exercise independent, critical and creative thought and develop the knowledge, self-confidence and maturity to be successful in your future career.
This course will prepare you for a career within many fields of electrical and electronic engineering where electronic systems are in use, specifically in embedded control systems where large scale integrated circuits are programmed and used to automate typical processes.
The course will enable you to develop a wide range of employability skills through the focus on technical expertise, including: knowledge of both analogue and digital systems; the ability to create computer models for simulation; and testing of new systems. And if you graduate from this course, you'll be able to apply for further study at postgraduate level.
LSBU is committed to supporting you develop your employability and succeed in getting a job after you have graduated. Your qualification will certainly help, but in a competitive market you also need to work on your employability, and on your career search. Our Employability Service will support you in developing your skills, finding a job, interview techniques, work experience or an internship, and will help you assess what you need to do to get the job you want at the end of your course. LSBU offers a comprehensive Employability Service, with a range of initiatives to complement your studies, including:
