Electronic Systems

The Warwick Engineering MSc programmes are one-year, researchled specialised courses suitable as preparation for a technical career in industry or for progression to a research degree.

Core Modules
• Research Methods • Signal Processing • Systems Modelling and Simulation

Three Optional Modules Chosen From:
The aims of the Electronic Systems degree are: to impart state-of-theart knowledge and understanding of Electronics at postgraduate level; to deliver advanced modules informed by the active research expertise of the academic staff; to prepare students for careers in advanced technology; to provide a study environment that fosters stimulation and permits students to advance their knowledge and skills.
• Microsensors & Microsystems Technology • Power Electronics • Synthetic Intelligence and Intelligent Software Design • Ultrasonic & Biomedical Instrumentation • Internet-enabled Engineering Instrumentation & Measurement • Wireless Communications • Optical Communication Systems • Optical Engineering and Image Processing • Remote Sensing and Data Processing • Micromechanics, Precision Design and Analysis

This programme in Electronic Systems includes: advanced instrumentation skills with a focus on silicon micro-machined sensors and actuators; the application of the MATLAB package to advanced problems in signal processing; the operation of ultrasonic and optical transducers in the context of sensing applications; new technologies in fields such as medical technology; the operation and future direction of electronic systems; the performance of sensing systems and their current trends.

• Computational Mathematics for Engineers

Half the course credit comprises a substantial project appropriate to the course of study. This entails an in-depth experimental, theoretical or computational investigation of a topic chosen by the student in conjunction with an academic supervisor. Recent Electronic Systems project titles include: • Ultrasonic Communications • The Sensitive Mobile Phone • 3D Image Compression using Wavelet Transforms • Mobile Learning for Healthcare Practitioners • Ultra Wide Band Signal Transmission and Propagation
