Dr Bell will share some of the reasons behind choosing MDIS as the collaborative partner for Northumbria University’s Engineering programmes.

 

Northumbria University

    Northumbria is a research-rich, business-focused, professional university with a global reputation for academic excellence.  By putting students at the heart of an outstanding experience, and with world leading research and award-winning partnerships, Northumbria is a new kind of excellent university.

Northumbria works with major global employers, including Nike, IBM, Nissan, Proctor & Gamble, the BBC, and the NHS, while more than 560 employers and 60 professional bodies sponsor or accredit the University’s programmes. Innovative and entrepreneurial, we are also ranked fourth in the UK for graduate business start-ups.

Northumbria University works with prestigious Institutions of Higher Education throughout the world, including MDIS. Together we offer an exciting portfolio of programmes that will develop international citizens who are equipped to work in a global marketplace. Northumbria University and MDIS have a successful working relationship for a number of years, starting initially with just one programme BSc (Honours) Biotechnology but has grown to now offering a number of undergraduate and post graduate programmes across a range of subject areas.

  • Ranked 21st out of 111 universities in the 2014 Times Higher Education Student Satisfaction Survey.

Engineering and Environment at Northumbria offers programmes to equip students with the skills, critical thinking and knowledge needed to change the world. The faculty aims for excellence in research, teaching and enterprise. High quality courses enable students to study disciplines that shape the world to be a better place for people.

Module Descriptions

 

Project Management & Professional Development

The module will enable students to develop a strong appreciation of the key issues associated with the
discipline of project management, the requirements expected from a student at level 6, in terms of their
ability to critically analysis, evaluation and reflect on material from relevant sources and their own
professional development. Students will acquire knowledge of a range of techniques to assist in the
project management field and in their academic study at level 6. The module will provide opportunities for
development of practical skills using an appropriate PC based project management tool. This knowledge and academic skills development will be set in the context of developing awareness of additional professional skills to complement the core techniques associated within a project management setting.

Microcontrollers in 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.
The module will be delivered by a series of lectures and workshops. The lectures are to provide essential material whilst the workshops initially allow the students to gain experience in using the IDE, and thereafter to tackle the group assignment.

Electronic Systems Design

This module demonstrates the design of Finite State Machines (FSMs) and also makes use of a Hardware Descriptive Language in the design of digital systems. During the design process works the module provides incrementally challenging problems. Computer Aided Design (CAD) Tools are used extensively within the module for example OrCAD or Mentor Graphics, to design and test digital FSM structures.

Principles of Wireless Mobile Networks

This module is designed to be suitable for a variety of networking professional roles including those wishing to gain a deeper understanding of mobile communications and 802.11 protocols. Additionally, it is suitable for wireless network administrators and support or design staff requiring a greater understanding of the new technologies and applications of modern converged networks and delegates seeking Certified Wireless
Network Associate (or similar) certification.
Following completion of the module, the student will be able to:
1. Describe and explain in detail wireless data communication technology.
2. Design, deploy and test a secure wireless local area network system.
3. Analyse protocol information in a wireless local area network.
4. Perform a pre-deployment critical site survey.

Design Engineering Project

The student will be provided with a range of predefined project titles and specifications, in the appropriate technological area, at the start of semester 1 of the session.
The project specifications will follow a structured pattern such that all project students will be able to complete a set of common milestone objectives at set points during the year, as part of the execution of the project.
The student will produce a planning/progress report at the end of semester 1, in addition to a final project report at the end of semester 2. Each individual student will be required to give a presentation on the project to the supervisor(s) and peers.
