Electrical and Information Sciences covers a very broad area.  The B modules cover a wide range of electronic circuits and devices, whilst the F modules cover the digital representation and processing of signals, and the manipulation of data in computers. A student in this area will be seeking to gain a broad overview of systems, from the signals that flow through them to the hardware platforms that implement them.  Although many students will choose to do mostly B modules or mostly F modules depending on their inclination towards the electrical or information side, students who specialise exclusively in one or the other should consider one of the other B/F Engineering Areas.

Specialist advice on this Engineering Area can be obtained from the Engineering Area coordinator, Professor M Smith
