Study type Taught


**1. Course summary**

• Gain an understanding of the concepts and methods that are used in today's electrical and electronic systems.• Acquire the skills necessary for their design, development and maintenance.

• Learn to use dedicated hardware to implement the concepts studied and to adapt these to real-world scenarios.
The course is built around core technical modules in combination with project-based activities. This lays the foundation for a course of study that can be designed to meet specific needs, whether these are for a particular career or in academia. On the two-year work experience route, the course offers useful placement opportunities.

**2. How you learn**
