Electrical Engineering

Module code: EG2221

This is a specialist Electronic and Electrical Engineering module which is also available to General Engineering students. This module gives you the skills and knowledge to analyse, design and select higher power electrical components such as transformers, motors and generators. It will enable you to perform electrical power calculations in single and three-phase circuits too.

You'll be introduced to the theory of electro-mechanical energy conversion, and develop an understanding of the operation and use of three-phase induction and synchronous machines. You may wish to specialise further in this area in later years of your degree, and this module gives you the foundation of knowledge you will need to do later options in this area.

As part of this module there will be an industrial visit or case study where you'll learn how electrical and electronic components are applied in a practical engineering context.
