Modern electronic system design is based on an understanding of a wide range of subjects from electrical network behaviour through signal processing and programmable systems, to the programming languages used to design hardware circuits.
All our first-year students take part in the faculty's Global Engineering Challenge, working with students from other engineering disciplines to solve a real-world problem. All second-year Electronics and Computer Engineering students get to work on a week-long project devised by one of our industry partners. You'll also get the chance to work with an engineering company through the Sheffield Industrial Project Scheme.
In your third year, you'll carry out your own research project, supervised by an academic. You'll start to focus on more advanced topics such as digital signal processing, VLSI design, hardware description languages and operating systems.
In your final year, you will work as part of a multidisciplinary team on a research project led by an academic with industry input.
Our Electronics with Computer Engineering courses are new degree titles and the department is seeing accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) which will be backdated to entry. If you take our three year BEng you will need to complete some further learning to satisfy the requirements to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. A
