If you like the idea of creating electrical systems which could help millions of people on a day-to-day basis, then studying an MSc in electrical and electronic engineering could be for you. Electrical and electronic engineers are crucial to the development of power systems and devices, electrical machines, alternative energy and smart grids, digital communication systems, computer networking, Internet of Things (IoT) and household electronic devices worldwide, to name a few. Engineers capable of designing and implementing electrical and electronic systems and devices for such applications are in high demand all over the world.
- This accredited course provides you with the opportunity to develop practical skills and theoretical knowledge in a range of electronics fields, including digital systems, image and signal processing, robotics and sensors, together with electrical systems such as renewable energy, smart grids, advanced control engineering and instrumentation, electrical machines and power generation.
- Designed to follow the Engineering Council UK-SPEC standard, the course encompasses theoretical and practical subjects within the broad area of electrical and electronic engineering as used by industries as diverse as aerospace and automotive, chemical and construction.
- You’ll have access to modern facilities, as well as an annual programme of lectures (subject to availability) which aim to inspire you in the areas of contemporary engineering and computing topics which are presented by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and British Computer Society (BCS) at no extra cost.
You will have the opportunity to explore areas such as electrical machines, signal processing, robotics and advanced control engineering and instrumentation. Additionally, there are modules exploring digital system design and communications systems, power systems, smart grid, and consultancy. Modules FPGA-Based Digital System Design - 15 credits Digital Signal and Image Processing - 15 credits Robotics – Kinematics, Dynamics and Applications - 15 credits Electrical Machines and Drives - 15 credits Power Systems - 10 credits Alternative Energy and Smart Grid - 15 credits Digital Communications - 10 credits Advanced Control Engineering and Instrumentation - 15 credits Individual project - 60 credits Entrepreneurial Practice – 10 credits We regularly review our course content, to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which will vary depending upon the module. Assessment methods include individual and group work, presentations, laboratory work, formal examinations, technical reports, in-class test, online quizzes, posters and computer simulation employing Simulink, Matlab, Multisim and PSCAD. The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards achieving the intended learning outcomes.
An honour’s degree in electrical and/or electronic engineering or a related subject area. Applicants offering equivalent professional qualifications and experience will be considered on merit. IELTS: 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5. If you don't meet the English language requirements, you can achieve the level you need by successfully completing a pre-sessional English programme before you start your course.
