We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
What should I prepare for the course of Electronic and Computer Engineering
You should be able to access this year’s list of the modules and recommended texts for the programme at this link (click on the module titles to get a detailed description) . I would suggest that you have a look at the module descriptions and do a little background reading to prepare yourself.
If your native language is not English, then it would be good to get some practice at listening to English spoken by native speakers (maybe by watching some English language movies or Youtube videos)
Good afternoon, please I will like to know more about the simulation software package for power and control
Most of it is done using Matlab/Simulink with Simscape and SimPowerSystems. We also use PSS/E and Digsilent Powerfactory.

Thank you for your question Daniel. May I ask you to contact me with you application details and I will check the offer conditions. My contact details are on the MSc’s webpage listed on this link.
Please open the ‘Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering’ section of the ‘Postgraduate courses by discipline:’ area and select the MSc you applied for.
There has been a Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Birmingham since its founding. The first Professor of Electrical Engineering, Gisbert Kapp (whose research focused on the development of dynamos and transformers), is remembered through the naming of our building after him. During the Second World War, John Randall and Harry Boot worked at Birmingham to improve the cavity magnetron which became an essential part of the centimetric wavelength radar.
