Course Summary

OVERVIEW

Smart technology is the future. Machines that talk to each other, learn from their surroundings and respond accordingly – think driverless cars – are the shape of things to come. With our MSc Electrical Smart Systems Engineering, you’ll put yourself at the centre of these exciting technological developments, working at the forefront of Industry 4.0.

Focusing on applied skills, this new course is a unique opportunity to develop your knowledge in this specialist engineering field. You’ll study nine core units, taking in the key technological foundations of Industry 4.0. That includes two project management units, helping you learn the principles behind the delivery of successful projects. It’s a rounded approach that means you’ll cover both design and implementation.

You’ll then be ready to tackle an in-depth engineering research project. In our high-tech facilities, you’ll learn to use the modern tools and equipment you’ll come across in the workplace.

Throughout it all, you’ll be supported by highly experienced teaching and research staff, who’ll ensure that what you’re learning is 100% relevant to industry. And, with both technical and project management skills, as well as a proven ability to apply critical thinking to real-world problems, you’ll leave us ready to play a constructive role in shaping the future.

Optional placement year

This course is available with an optional industrial placement year, giving students the chance to tailor their knowledge to suit a specific industry or skill set. This is an excellent opportunity to put theory into practice and gain transferable workplace skills, providing a real boost to your CV when you graduate.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Practical, independent thinkers with both technical expertise and a strong grasp of modern management techniques are in high demand across the industry. So, with this masters under your belt, you could be looking to move into a role at the operational level of a company, implementing lean, best-value manufacturing.

You’ll be able to apply for jobs in a wide range of industries, including the production, process, transport, power, consumer goods, pharmaceutical and chemical sectors. If you decide to continue with your studies, you’ll also be well placed to enter a PhD or an Engineering Doctorate programme.

Careers support is available from the moment you join us, and for up to three years after you finish your course. Dedicated careers and employability advisors in the Department of Engineering and the University Careers Service will help you find the role that’s right for you. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.

Modules

The aim of this Unit is to develop student knowledge in the fundamentals of project management and the management of projects through the Body of Knowledge (APM) and Book of Knowledge (PMI).
