Learning outcomes
Embeded Real Time Systems:
This is a module that integrates knowledge of microprocessor systems and high level language programming. There is a strong emphasis on developing solutions to realistic engineering problems using embedded software techniques.

Industrial Robotics and Control:
Robot manipulators are numerous in industry and found in a variety of applications. This module will explain exactly how they work, how to program them, their interfacing with industrial controllers and how they will be improved in the future. Topics will range from motor control using PLC?s and what PID really is, through to the advanced topics of vision and current research.

Research Method and Project Management:
This module prepares the student for planning, undertaking, managing and reporting an MSc level project in engineering. The work is split into two areas:
1. The development of a proposal of work to be undertaken during the project.
2. Expanding good project management practice to an industrial sized project.
On completion of the module the student will be ready to start their MSc project and write their dissertation.

Optional Course:
