To provide the knowledge and skills required of a professional engineer to design control and signal processing systems for complex embedded systems. The course includes modules on advanced control theory and digital signal processing, and also covers the latest software techniques for implementing these technologies on a range of high-performance applications.
Teaching and Assessment Methods
Modules are taught using lectures and seminar sessions and are supported by a range of structured practical and laboratory work. Performance in modules is assessed by means of open and closed examination papers and a range of continuously assessed work. All MSc students are required to produce a dissertation including the results obtained in the individual project module.
Duration and mode of study
The course can be taken full or part-time. The full-time MSc lasts one year or the Postgraduate Diploma nine months. The courses can be taken part-time over a period of up to four years.
As well as completing an individual project, students will take the following courses:
* Matlab and CAD
* Individual Project
* Modelling and Classification of Data
* High-reliability Embedded Systems
* Robust Control
* Design of Discrete Systems
* Real-time Signal Processing
* Non-Linear Control
* Introduction to Biomedical Engineering
