Researchincontext
Academic staff within Electrical Engineering and
Electronics are leading researchers in their fields.
One current area of activity is Dr Dmitry Samsonovs
work on Dusty plasmas.
The word dusty isnt one you would usually
associate with the highly sophisticated,
technologically-advanced world of engineering
research but the study of dusty plasmas at the
University of Liverpool could help NASA design
the spacesuits and spacecraft of the future.

WHAT IS PLASMA?
Plasma is a mixture of positive ions and free
electrons which generates and interacts with
electric, magnetic and gravitational forces to
produce phenomena such as stars, solar flares
and supernovae. On Earth, the ionosphere,
the aurora borealis and lightning are examples
of naturally occurring plasmas.

04/05

We are surrounded by plasmas inside light


bulbs, in fluorescent neon shop signs and
in plasma TVs. Plasmas are used to sterilise
medical equipment and to treat the emission
of toxic gases. They are used to alter the
properties of materials such as increasing
surface hardness or in the fabrication of
integrated circuits. Dusty plasmas occur
when micron-sized grains of matter are mixed
with an ordinary ion-electron plasma. This
occurs naturally in space in interstellar and
interplanetary dust clouds, comet tails and
planetary rings, but dusty plasma can also
be replicated in the laboratory.

Scientists have found that when the grains


are given a negative charge they interact with
each other, giving them completely different
properties, including the ability to levitate.
We prefer to call them complex rather than
dusty plasmas, says Dr Dmitry Samsonov,
whose laboratory in Electrical Engineering
and Electronics is the only dedicated complex
plasma facility in the UK. When we create
complex plasmas in the lab, instead of dust
we use plastic microspheres. These are very
complicated to manufacture so it is a bit more
sophisticated than plain dust!
As well as applications in astrophysics and
plasma processing, the study of complex
plasmas could be extremely useful in space
exploration. Moon dust is charged by solar
UV radiation and levitates about 20cm above
the Moons surface. Since this dust is highly
abrasive it can damage spacesuits and this
poses a serious problem for future missions
to the Moon and possibly Mars. The trick is
to apply electric fields and remove charged
dust before it has done any damage, using
techniques developed in the laboratory.
However, this might well make the problem
worse if its done without understanding the
physics of complex plasmas.

WHICH DEGREE

YEAR IN INDUSTRY PROGRAMMES

MEng and BEng programmes are


accredited by the Institution of Engineering
and Technology (IET). To qualify for Chartered
Engineer status you need either a MEng
degree or a BEng degree with a matching
section of further learning.

Our Year in Industry programmes include a


placement year during which you will spend time
working in an engineering company. This is an
excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering
experience which will boost your CV.

The MEng is an enhanced BEng programme,


which means that you have an extra year
to study advanced topics and undertake a
group project based on the needs of industry.
If you have an interest in the design of electronic
circuits and modern electronic devices then
a degree in Electronics will interest you.
Electrical machines and power generation
and distribution are covered by degrees in
Electrical Engineering.

Placements have been offered by the


Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory which
is based on the University campus and CES
is active in finding placements with companies
based on Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) in China.
Students who take up a placement on SIP
are offered accommodation at our partner
University, Xian Jiaotong Liverpool University,
based in Suzhou, China and they have access
to all the facilities on the XJTLU campus.

HOW YOU LEARN


Or you may choose to study both subjects
with a degree in Electrical Engineering and
Electronics. We offer several degrees for those
students with a particular interest in avionics,
computer science, mechatronics or medical
applications. For those students who are not
studying the appropriate A levels, we offer a
four-year BEng programme with a Foundation
Element and you can include a Year in Industry
with most of our programmes.

You will be assigned a personal tutor and


you will also have access to the Universitys
Languages Centre. There are a number of
Departmental, Faculty and IET prizes available
based upon academic performance during
your studies, as well as opportunities for
summer vacation work for research groups
within the Department.

People of all ages often wonder what


stops an aircraft from falling out of the
sky. The fundamental reason is due to the
aerodynamic lift acting on the wings but, for
the modern aircraft, there is more to it than
that. Sophisticated electronics is another
essential ingredient especially for aircraft
that are inherently aerodynamically unstable,
such as some fighter jets. Electronic systems
associated with flight are known by the term
avionics, derived from the expression aviation
electronics.

Avionics covers the internal sensors and


control systems within aircraft: from airborne
communication and navigation systems to
stealth aircraft design and flight control
systems. As aircraft get more sophisticated, the
avionics becomes more and more important
such as in modern fly-by-wire control systems.
In fact the avionics in most aircraft will be
upgraded several times during the life of the
airframe. This makes avionics one of the most
important sectors in the aerospace industry
and it is a major employer in the UK. This degree
programme aims to provide a graduate with all
of the necessary technical knowledge to work
in a variety of disciplines associated with avionic
systems: radar systems, GPS/inertial navigation
systems, guidance and control, and avionic
systems design. The Department has
strong links with industry and a number of
undergraduate projects have been generated
from industrial projects undertaken by members
of the Department. Examples include the
development of infrared tracking algorithms
for missile warning systems, antenna design
for airborne communications and flight control
systems for terrain avoidance in low-level flight.

PROGRAMME CONTENT
The programme starts by giving you a basic
grounding in all of the necessary technical
subjects in Year One, with modules in Electrical
Circuits and Systems, Digital Electronics,
Mathematics and an Introduction to Aerospace
Engineering (which covers the principles of flight
and terminology of aerospace engineering).
In Year Two, Avionics is introduced through
a dedicated module which covers everything
from radar cross-sections of stealth aircraft to
airborne navigation using the Global Positioning
System. Year Two also includes modules in
Instrumentation (covering the electrical devices
that are used to monitor and control the flight
of aircraft) and other relevant subjects.

Faculty of Science and Engineering > School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics, and Computer Science >
Electrical Engineering and Electronics www.liverpool.ac.uk/eee

In Year Three (or Year Four for H432), there


is an opportunity to specialise in a particular
area of avionics with individual project work
and optional modules in antenna and radar
systems, control systems or navigation.
Throughout the course, there is a strong
multidisciplinary flavour to the subjects being
studied, with common elements shared by
mainstream aerospace engineering students
and electrical engineers. However, the Avionics
programme offers a range of avionics modules
that will provide you with greater in-depth
technical knowledge than is offered by
either of the mainstream subject areas.
If you are attracted by the prospect of
spending a year in industry, you may be
interested in the four-year programme H432.
On this programme students spend their
third year of study on industrial placement.
Please see page 09 for further details.

Years One and Two


You will take the modules listed under the
UCAS Codes H430, H431 and H432 on
pages 33-34. If you are not sure if you wish to
take a BEng (Hons) or an MEng (Hons) degree
then we advise that you apply for the MEng and
make a final decision at the end of Year Two.

Preparation for the placement is provided


by the Universitys Careers and Employability
Services (CES) who will assist to finding a
placement, help you prepare a professional
looking CV and prepare you for your placement
interview. Placements can be near or far in
the UK, Europe and China. For example

who take up a placement on SIP are offered
accommodation at our partner University,
Xian Jiaotong Liverpool University, based
in Suzhou and they have access to all the
facilities on the XJTLU campus.

Years Three and Four


You undertake an extended individual project
in the area of Avionics. You also study modules
including (a, c, e, p, u, v) from the list on page
36, Flight Dynamics and Control, Avionic
Systems Design and Project Management.

Avionic Systems MEng (Hons)


UCAS code: H431
Programme length: 4 years

Year in Industry (H432)


This is the placement year during which you will
spend time working in an engineering company.
This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical
engineering experience which will boost your
CV. Many placement students continue their

Year in Industry BEng (Hons)
UCAS code: HG6L
Programme length: 4 years

This programme combines the core elements of


Electronic Engineering with those of Computer
Science, the intellectual discipline underlying all
aspects of software development. Teaching is
divided almost equally between the Department
of Electrical Engineering and Electronics and the
Department of Computer Science. Combining
elements from these two disciplines will equip
you with both an added breadth of knowledge,
in addition to a degree of specialisation which
enables greater penetration of these branches
of learning. One other reason why our graduates
are in demand is their fluency both in the
language of electronic engineers as well as
that of the computer scientists, enabling you
to bridge the gap between software systems
and the real world.

The 20th century witnessed great technological
leaps due to the possibilities created by
the fusion of Electronics with Electrical and
Mechanical Engineering. The marriage of the
21st century has been that of electronics and
computers, to the level where you are unlikely
to come across any modern device without
at least one microprocessor inside, giving
birth to a new generation of smart devices
that will shape the way we live in the future.
The rapid pace of technological change
and the diversity of modern applications
require a broad educational background
and a lifelong commitment to learning new
and specialised skills.

During the first year of the programme,


you will be introduced to the fundamentals of
Electronics as well as the underlying principles
and theory of computing. Your lecture modules
will cover the core subjects of Electronic
Circuits, Digital Electronics, Java Programming
and Data Structures.
In addition you will take modules such as
Mathematics and spend one day a week
doing practical work in both the computer
and electronics laboratories. This will give
you excellent practical and transferable
skills vital for subsequent years of the
programme and invaluable in your future
career. The second year builds on the first
with core modules in Software Engineering,
Database Development, Digital Electronics and
Signals and Communication Systems. More
time is spent in the electronics laboratory doing
practical work to consolidate the knowledge
learnt in lectures and partaking in an extended
team project.

Electricity is taken for granted by our society.
Everyone expects that electrical energy is
available 24/7, but without it the basis on which
we live our lives would change dramatically
no internet, no mobiles and no emails. However,
Electrical Engineering is not simply about
producing and transmitting electrical energy,
it is also about how it is used. In both its
transmission and usage there are significant
and increasing challenges facing Electrical
Engineers; many of these are related to
sustainability and the environment. Over the
last decade there has been an increase in the
generation of electrical energy from greener
sources (eg wind, wave, solar etc.) and more
efficient consumer products with increased
electronics and software.

PROGRAMME CONTENT
The programme blends the fundamentals
of Electrical Engineering and Electronic
Engineering in the first years with the more
specialist knowledge that makes up the
programme in the final year. The subjects range
from digital electronics to power electronics,
from power generation to computer systems
and integrated circuits. This blending of
subjects provides graduates with a mix
of skills that can be applied in demanding,
complex and dynamic environments.
These skills are much sought after by a broad
range of industries with many employers
actively encouraging and supporting career
progression through training and membership
of professional bodies and many also expect

Electrical and Electronic Engineering has
been the driving force behind technological
change for the last 100 years. In 1900 there
were no radios, televisions, computers,
DVDs, lasers, mobile phones, robots or silicon
integrated circuits and only a very small fraction
of homes had an electricity supply. The ingenuity
of Electrical and Electronic engineers has
completely changed our lives compared to
the lives of our parents and grandparents.
All degree programmes offered by the
Department of Electrical Engineering and
Electronics are accredited by the Institution
of Engineering and Technology (IET) so that
our syllabuses and teaching quality have
been independently checked and approved.
That means that you will have the academic
qualification necessary for professional
recognition as a Chartered Engineer.

One billion transistors fabricated on a piece
of silicon the size of a postage stamp is now
a reality. And that reality brings with it many
engineering challenges for electronics
graduates: how do you design such a complex
system; how do you check every connection
is correct; how do you stop the silicon chip
overheating from the tiny amount of heat
dissipated by each transistor and, perhaps
most fundamental of all, what can you do with
that number of transistors that hasnt been
done before? Along with massive challenges
exists great opportunities; a small innovation
can bring rich rewards for you, and the
company you work for, if it is applicable to
a fraction of the several billion electronic
products manufactured every year.

This BEng (Hons) programme (and the


linked MEng (Hons) programme) will prepare
you for the world of modern electronics. The
Department of Electrical Engineering and
Electronics is particularly strong in electronics
with research groups in solid state silicon
electronics, molecular electronics and
BioNanoElectronics.
The Department also has excellent links with
the electronics industry; for example ARM Ltd,
who design the microprocessors that go into
90% of all mobile phones, have supported the
Department through donations (from the
Founding CEO and Chairman, Sir Robin Saxby,
an electronics graduate from the University
of Liverpool), summer work placements,
ideas for project work and, most significantly,
employment for many recent graduates.

PROGRAMME CONTENT
The first year of the programme gives you
a firm foundation in the fundamentals of
electronics with lecture modules in the
core subjects of Electronic Circuits, Digital
Electronics and Integrated Circuit Electronics
and Design. In addition you will take modules
such as Mathematics and Computer
Programming and one day a week is spent
in the laboratory doing practical work; that gives
you excellent numerical and transferable skills
that you can use in subsequent years of the
programme and for life. The second year builds
on the first year with core modules in Electronic
Circuits and Systems, Digital Electronics,
Microprocessor Systems and CMOS
Integrated Circuits. More time is spent in the
electronics laboratory doing practical work
to support the theory learnt in lectures and
partaking in an extended team project.
