Course Summary

Apply scientific knowledge, mathematics and ingenuity to find solutions for technical, societal and commercial problems. On 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

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.


This module introduces the advanced topics in control systems and the control engineering application in power electronic systems, automotive and robotics design. Topics include stability analysis of nonlinear systems, digital control systems, intelligent systems, model predictive control, adaptive control and variable structure control, estimator design and modeling and real-time simulation. This module will have labs either in the electronics lab, or in the ITL.
