Aims/Description: This module builds on the C programming learned in year 1 by exploring both the higher level issues of programming, modelling, and skills that an Electronic Engineer should possess. Three mini projects using C and MATLAB and drawn from across the department. The aim is to develop in you the habits of object orientation (e.g. modularity, data hiding, etc.) using C and MATLAB, both commonly used industry standard tools, and writing software for embedded systems.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Laboratory work, Independent Study
Assessment: Classroom testing, Project/ portfolio
