COURSE CONTENT AND DELIVERY The EEPE course has been designed to provide the graduate with an in-depth insight into the key technological areas that are driving the power electronics revolution. The structure of the MSc programme follows the successful structure used by other MSc courses. It comprises ten taught modules delivered over two semesters followed by practical design-based project work over the summer. The fundamentals of electrical engineering are taught under the modules Signals and Systems Theory and Power Devices and Applications. As modern engineering is about systems design, you will be exposed to the latest developments in the module Advanced Systems Programming. In addition, the Digital Signal Processing module provides an introductory overview of techniques applied for fast signal processing in control applications. The concepts of using computer software as control tools are introduced in the modules Control System Design. The Power Converters and Applications module is dedicated to introduce new and current research topics in the area of power electronics and energy, and it is pitched at learning via laboratory design based investigations and seminar topics with associated tutorial exercises. The latest advances in robotics are presented in the new module Mobile Robotics which is a linked module spanning both semesters in a design-based autonomous mobile robotics project, with assessment in group demonstration, group presentation, project report and group interviews. The theory behind the various fundamental disciplines is reinforced via tutorials, seminars and hands-on practical laboratory sessions in both hardware and software throughout the whole programme. In order to ensure that your knowledge is both relevant and up to date, regular presentations by leading engineers and researchers are made as part of the Research Seminar Series module. At the end of this module, we arrange a presentation event, where you present a piece of work based on a relevant topic derived from the Research Seminar Series to your colleagues, academics and invited visitors from the School of Engineering, Design and Technology and the School of Informatics. In the summer, you will conclude your work with a project in a relevant topic. The project provides you with the perfect opportunity to delve further into a particular subject that will have been covered by the taught modules. At the start of the second semester, a list of available project titles is published, which typically covers a broad range of subjects such as mobile robotics, analoguedigital circuit design, real-time digital signal processing, power circuit and system modelling, human computerrobot interface design, energy monitoring, control system design, and so on. Projects could be hardware-based, software-based or both. After you have selected a project, you will plan your activities for the summer during the second semester. This will be agreed with your project supervisor, who will be your mentor until your project is concluded with the submission of a dissertation. Your supervisors will guide you using their expertise in their respective fields in electrical engineering, power electronics, telecommunications, etc. We believe this provides a unique programme, which is interesting, interactive, hands-on and also highly relevant to the needs of the electronics industry. The student will feel that he or she belongs to a striving group of local and international students who encourage and support each other to push the limits of their knowledge to the frontiers of the present ever growing technologies. SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY The School of Engineering, Design and Technology (EDT) provides a vibrant, attractive and progressive environment in which to do your MSc programme. Recent investment of ?1.8 million in computer, information and communications technology and ?0.5 million in the Mobile and Satellite Communications Research Centre illustra
