This module is not approved as a discovery module
ObjectivesThe objectives of this module are for students to further develop their C++ programming skills and learn more advanced software engineering and embedded software techniques. Additionally students will complete an individual project in order to consolidate their learning and develop a range of project skills.
On completion of this module students should be able to:
1. Write, compile, run and de-bug C++ programs using standard programming techniques.
2. Implement a range of embedded software techniques on a microcontroller.
3. Manage an embedded systems design project requiring initiative, creativity, problem-solving, time-management and project-management skills.
4. Communicate the results of a technical project in various forms with specialist and non-specialist audiences.
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
Software engineering principles
Object-oriented programming in C++
C++ standard libraries
Advanced embedded Software techniques
Serial communication protocols

Private studyStudents are expected to use private study time to consolidate their understanding of course materials, to undertake preparatory work for seminars, workshops, tutorials, examples classes and practical classes, and also to prepare for in-course and summative assessments.
Opportunities for Formative FeedbackStudents studying ELEC modules will receive formative feedback in a variety of ways, including the use of self-test quizzes on Minerva, practice questions/worked examples and (where appropriate) through verbal interaction with teaching staff and/or post-graduate demonstrators.
Methods of assessment
|Assessment type||Notes||% of formal assessment|
|In-course Assessment||Programming-based (C++) Group Project||25.00|
|In-course Assessment||Microcontroller-based (C++) Individual Project||35.00|
|Total percentage (Assessment Coursework)||60.00|
Resits for ELEC and XJEL modules are subject to the School's Resit Policy and the Code of Practice on Assessment (CoPA), which are available on Minerva. Students should be aware that, for some modules, a resit may only be conducted on an internal basis (with tuition) in the next academic session.
|Exam type||Exam duration||% of formal assessment|
|Online Time-Limited assessment||1 hr 00 mins||15.00|
|Online Time-Limited assessment||1 hr 00 mins||25.00|
|Total percentage (Assessment Exams)||40.00|
Normally resits will be assessed by the same methodology as the first attempt, unless otherwise stated
