Module Descriptions

Year 1

Computer Programming

This module aims to provide the student with the ability to develop a C programme from a given specification. This is achieved through the use of structured programme development using Pseudo code and C programming methodology. The student will learn how to produce a programme in C and how to write C programmes to perform a number of Engineering tasks using arrays and character arrays, amongst others, to solve specific engineering problems. In addition to this the student will, in semester two, learn how to produce C programmes to execute on a microcontroller that can control hardware and perform engineering applications such as to control Traffic Lights, develop a home alarm system, and measure distance, to name a few examples.

Year 2

Advanced Engineering Mathematics

This module is designed to provide the student with a basic course in Laplace Transforms, their use in solving ordinary differential equations arising from physical problems, and their use in describing the behaviour of simple control systems. The student will be introduced to the concept of the harmonic components of a periodic waveform and be shown how this is useful in matching general solutions of partial differential equations to particular boundary or initial conditions. The solution of systems of linear ordinary differential equations using matrix methods will also be considered.

Analogue Electronics and Instrumentation

The sensor systems instrumentation needed to measure a variety of different measurands (for example temperature, pressure and lux level) will be covered, with a view to both the sensors and the signals they produce. Amplifiers and signal conditioning devices that convert the sensor output into usable signals for typical process control platforms will be covered. Operational amplifiers will be used extensively in the module, leading up to an understanding of discrete electronic transistor design. CAD tools will be used to enhance student understanding of instrumentation systems and circuit design, operation and testing (for example Labview and OrCAD).

C Programming and Digital Systems

This module aims to further develop the fundamental digital and C programming knowledge and design concepts established in Year 1. This will involve the design of digital decoder and multiplexers, synchronous counters and an introduction to Finite State Machines (FSM). These are covered with the intent of using a Hardware Description Language (HDL) and associated CAD tools to enhance student understanding of circuit design, operation and testing. The C programming language will be used to programme a microcontroller to perform hardware control as an alternative to using digital hardware. CAD tools will be used to develop and simulate the C programmes, as well as the programming of a microcontroller to implement given specifications. In this way the student will learn how modern electronic systems can be programmed for both hardware and software based solutions to meet a range of applications.

Communications Systems

This module aims to show the methods used in modern communications. It examines the technology for the communication of digital data networks and introduces practical aspects of high speed transmission links using optical fibres.

Option B

Embedded Systems

This module aims to develop the application of microcontrollers in embedded systems. A number of commercially available microcontrollers are considered in terms of hardware and software capabilities. An appropriate IDE (Integrated Development Environment) will be used to design, develop, simulate, build and test a complete embedded system to a given specification.

Digital System Design and Implementation

The module aims to show the student how to design and implement digital systems using a range of powerful techniques and tools, such as Finite State Machine (FSMs) and programmable logic. A central theme of the module is the use of a Hardware Description Language, and how it can be used to capture and describe a digital design at a variety of abstraction levels. Practical sessions involving the use of industry standard simulation, synthesis and implementation software will be used to provide experience of the complete digital system flow, from concept to realisation.

This module also aims to develop an understanding of practical design and implementation issues, such as testing and ‘Design-for-Test’. These and other topics will be reinforced by the use of real-world case examples and designs. The commercial issues surrounding digital system realisation using a variety of technologies will be explored, with emphasis on Programmable Logic.
