Course Summary

This comprehensive and varied course, you will acquire the essential competencies and engineering awareness for a successful career in electronics based industries.

  • Study in a school which undertakes world-leading research in networks, antenna design and electromagnetics, computer vision and computer theory
  • Our teaching, research and industrial contacts allow you to focus on either electrical or electronic engineering, or combine the two
  • Ideal for students with a good first degree in electronic engineering, computer science, maths or a related discipline
  • Work with the most up-to-date technologies - each topic is backed up by our world-leading research centres and groups
  • You can choose to study this programme with an additional year of Industrial Experience to augment your practical skills

What you'll study

The programme aims to emphasise analogue and digital circuit design, power electronics and electrical systems, control and microwave and millimetre wave technologies; areas with a major skills shortage worldwide and particularly in the UK. The School has collaborations, partnerships, industrial placement schemes and public engagement programmes with organisations, including Vodafone, Google, IBM, BT, NASA, BBC and Microsoft.

Career paths

The broad range of skills gained through programmes in this School, coupled with multiple opportunities for extra-curricular activities and work experience, has enabled postgraduates to move into roles such as:

  • Technical analyst
  • Interactive systems developer
  • Software developer
  • Analyst technical associate
  • IT contractor
  • Computer analyst
  • IT developer
  • Team manager
  • Computer programmer
  • Computer consultant
  • Graduate engineer.

Modules

A project can be proposed in any area of your specialisation (module). Industrially and commercially proposed topics are welcome. All work must be original and your own. Where you use ideas, structure or text from other sources you must always fully reference this. The project is probably the most demanding task that you have to undertake. It is very different from the taught modules. Although you will have a supervisor, you are on your own to a greater extent. The onus is on you to define the project boundaries, to review relevant literature, to devise the methods of investigation, to carry out the investigation, to assess your findings and to report your work in a scholarly manner. You will be introduced to many of these aspects during the Research Methods module. To be successful you will need to plan, estimate and manage your time and energy. The rest you will have to learn as you go along. You are required to produce three documents, on or before specified deadlines, as part of the project. The project specification is a short document; the Draft report is required one month before the end of the project; followed by the final report (the dissertation).
