Designed to address skills gaps in this innovative industry, our MSc will help maximise your employability. Industry-relevant course content, placement opportunities and teaching from research-active staff mean our graduates are well-equipped for a range of roles.
You will grow your skills across core electronic engineering disciplines, by taking modules such as Digital Signal Processing, Power Electronics and Embedded Systems. You will further enhance your employability by studying Engineering Business Environment, a module that considers the opportunities and threats to business arising from environmental policy, legislation and societal change. In your final semester, you will be supported by our academics and technicians with your individual project, a substantial piece of work focused on your specific research interests.
You will be taught by staff who are carrying out research in areas including emerging memory devices, growth nano-structures and communications cabling. This means you will develop a thorough and up-to-date understanding of the context of electronic engineering in the 21st century. Our graduates are working as engineers in roles including control systems and embedded systems, engineering electronics design and biomedical monitoring. Opportunities also exist for further academic study towards a doctorate degree and a career in research.
