EPS Summer School
Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
20 JULY - 15 AUGUST 2020
The school is home to the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT) which is a unique research and innovation centre where staff and students work closely with world-leading companies and entrepreneurs, taking a business focused and entrepreneurial approach to tackling three areas of the global challenge.
The EEECS Summer School will provide you the chance to visit ECIT and other local companies.
We are excited to offer two technical modules to our summer school students which cover fundamentals of microelectronics, electrical engineering and computer programming.
Students will experience hands-on learning through problem solving using interactive exercises. Moreover, students will be facilitated to work as a team and present cutting edge research problems to their peers as a part of group project.
Professional Skills & Career Development
Broaden your expertise to develop your enterprise skills or secure your dream job. Explore the leadership challenges faced in a climate of constant change.
This module will cover fundamentals of Analog Electronics including a detailed overview of an operational amplifier (op-amp). Additionally, different op-amp configuration (inverting, non-inverting, integrators, and differentiators) will be taught. The course will also involve two to three practical lab experiments.
Module 3 will cover the fundamentals of computer programming. It will develop the student's ability to employ and adapt programming fundamentals through problem solving and software development. It will focus on the principles of object-oriented design. It will use a high-level programming language and IDE to introduce objects, classes, methods and data types. By the end of the course students will be able to develop and deploy small software programs.
We have recently invested £15 million in a new state of the art Computer Science building where you will spend a lot of your time at Queen’s to reflect the importance of IT to the Northern Ireland economy.
This also reflects our innovative teaching methods and high-tech learning environment which create a unique experience for our students.
If you are thinking of doing a postgraduate course at Queen’s this is the perfect opportunity to get a taster of what it’s like to study at our beautiful campus.
Students who have attended the EPS Summer School who return to a full-time postgraduate taught programme receive a 20% tuition fee reduction on year 1.
