http://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/pg/e...al-processing/ would this master course contribute to acquiring knowledge for the creation of endless energy added to a BEng EEE course which covers electromagnetics, electromagnetic induction and alt. and dir. current? Are digital signals always electric?

Your link doesn't work, but no, energy would be under electrical engineering topics whereas communications and signal processing are decidedly electronic.

Where electrical is to do with power transmission and electronic is to do with signals, to simplify quite a lot.

thanks a lot mate, so do you believe this course could be helpful with ways of transmitting energy?

If you want to learn about transmitting energy I would just self learn, if you already have a BEng in EEE then you should have a pretty good idea of the topics you should be looking into. I've only done 50 credits of EEE and a decent sized project and I know where to start so part of me thinks you haven't started your BEng yet, in which case focus on your master's subject in year 2 and 3, not now as you have no idea what you will be interested in by the end of your degree.

Transmitting energy is almost entirely an Electrical Engineering topic, however if you're talking wireless electricity then it would likely be useful to have some Electronic Engineering, particularly Communications as that would cover EM waves in a bit more depth.

I have not indeed commenced my beng, it was more of a chimera tbh, relating to the functioning of an electric generator with magnetism and my query was, if the previously mentioned masters of electronics as you say, concerning mostly communications such as 4g etc and digital signal processing could have any value in this project?

A communications and signal processing course will be concentrated on how signals can be manipulated and processed so as to enable information to be transmitted from one point to another (mainly over wireless medium but you can find optical comms courses) and not really on energy distribution per se. So on the communications side you will study things like modulation & demodulation and on the signal processing side you will study things like the digital filtering of signals.

If your main area of interest is wireless power transfer (i.e wireless charging) then you need to look at RF/microwave engineering, there should be at least one RF module in a communications masters although there are much more specialist RF masters courses out there. If you are interested in high voltage electric power generation and distribution then you need to be looking into electrical engineering and if you are interested in low voltage power generation from solar then you will need to look into taking semiconductor device / nanotechnology courses and you will find several of those in a Electronic Engineering degree. So just saying you are interested in energy does not tell us much although if your core interest is in dealing with electric power generation you will be better off in Electrical.

An EEE degree will expose you to all the areas mentioned above so you can decide just go on that and decide which area you wish specialise in later.

No it doesn't.
