Units

  • Digital, Microwave And Optical Communications (CIS117-6) Compulsory
  • Research Methodologies And Project Management (CIS120-6) Compulsory
  • Signals And Electronic Systems (CIS115-6) Compulsory
  • Wireless Embedded Systems (CIS116-6) Compulsory

You are assessed in a variety of ways. The majority of units are assessed through coursework, group and individual projects, portfolios, essays, presentations or exams. Presentations are usually given and assessed in the context of a group seminar. You will also produce software artefacts in the area of your specialism. Constant feedback and advice from a supervisory or unit team will be provided to support you in your work. You will progress from well-defined briefs to more open-ended and challenging assessments, which culminate in your major project - the MSc Project - Electronic Engineering where you will be given freedom to choose your area of work.

The feedback on your submitted assessments will be provided within 15 working days. The lecturers are expected to take every effort to provide you the feedback as early as possible before the next assessment if any. If you fail an assessment and need to retake or resit the assessment, you can do so in the next available opportunity, which is normally in the assessment week of the next block. If you fail a unit and need to retake this unit, you can do so when the unit is run again.
