Information & Computer Engineering

Information and Computer Engineering covers the digital representation and processing of signals and systems. It extends from the theory of signals and systems, through to the manipulation of data via computer programs.

Third Year

Students intending to qualify in this Engineering Area must include at least six of the modules listed below in their third year.

Number and title of module
3F1   Signals and systems
3F2   Systems and control
3F3   Signal and pattern processing
3F4   Data transmission
3F5   Computer and network systems
3F6   Software engineering and design
3G4   Medical imaging and 3D computer graphics
3M1   Mathematical methods

Students specialising in this area whose main interests are signals, control and communications will include 3F1 to 3F5. Those with an interest in computer systems will focus more on 3F4 to 3F6. Students with a strong interest in control should also consider the Instrumentation and Control Area as an alternative.

Recommended Engineering Area Extension Activity: Investigation of the design of CD players
