Course Summary

Course description

There is a growing demand for professionals who can harness latest technology to design and produce novel measurement and control systems.

  • Choose a highly regarded masters course accredited by the Institute of Measurement and Control
  • Take your first steps towards Chartered Engineer status: this programme covers all the educational requirements you need
  • Gain the ideal preparation for senior roles in areas such as automotive, aerospace, petrochemical, scientific or manufacturing applications
  • Enjoy vital industry insights with visits to major companies
  • Undertake practical projects underpinned by latest research
  • Learn from experienced and supportive tutors who will help you to reach your full potential.

The MSc Control and Instrumentation is a vital step towards helping you apply for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). It has been developed to cover all the educational requirements for CEng status: you will then need to meet the requirements for responsible work experience.

When you graduate, you will be skilled and knowledgeable in many areas sought after by employers across sectors including the motor vehicle, manufacturing, aerospace and petrochemical industries. There is currently a shortage of staff who can understand and apply current technology to design and produce novel measurement and control systems. This opens up many opportunities for high-calibre professionals, including rapid progression to senior roles.

Modules

This module is designed to consolidate your postgraduate and industrial knowledge so you will carry out practical case studies on a number of small industrial applications. These bring together aspects of electronics, electrical, mechanical and CAD used in industry. We focus on implementing electrical and electronic principles, sensors and actuators, with the emphasis on how these elements fit into industrial applications.
