Course description

Today, and in the future, we look to electronics to provide answers for complex problems.  Take the mobile phone: a very sophisticated computer and communications system that links to a worldwide network of antennas allowing it to connect to any other mobile or landline as well as the internet.  Or the digital camera, at the heart of which is a sophisticated electronic device containing millions of individual light level detectors. 

Modern electronics requires an understanding of fundamental analogue and digital circuits to enable the design of elements that can be connected together to make small systems, which serve as the modular blocks for bigger, more complex systems. 

We live in an information age.  Complex systems require digital signal processing (for images, audio and other signals).  Technological developments in communications include concurrent processing (to allow the manipulation of the massive amounts of data), data networking and digital communication systems for both local distribution and across the internet.


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2017 will be £9,250, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Future inflationary increases will be applied to each subsequent year of the course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Tuition fees for international students will be £21,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.


These include:

Power Academy, UK Electronics Skills Foundation, International Excellence, Procter & Gamble, National Instruments and many more.  For more information go to the  Undergraduate Scholarships  page.
