This programme is designed as a specialised extension to the study of Electronics at undergraduate level. The programme provides students with the opportunity to deepen their understanding and develop specialist expertise in a range of advanced electronics subjects including microelectronics, sensors, signal processing, hardware and software design, communications, and digital systems. The MSc in Electronics learning experience is significantly enhanced by an optional professional development programme introduced to expand knowledge application skills and support academic learning by providing direct access to paid Professional Internships with industrial companies for periods up to 12 months. The Professional Internship advances postgraduate taught (PGT) study in specialised and state of the art subjects by developing key engineering skills and offering technical leadership roles to shape the Master's programme and accelerate chartered registration (CEng status) on completion of the programme. This exciting programme has been followed by many postgraduates who have entered professional engineering careers in many diverse areas including electric power and renewable energy, micro and nanoelectronics, advanced electrical and electronic engineering design, digital and wireless communications, aerospace, manufacturing, process control and IT product design. The professional programme is offered by Queen’s to support students in their academic and personal development to graduate as engineers who are forward thinkers, innovators, leaders and communicators and have the capacity to solve many diverse and interesting challenges in this broad discipline. Through this professional internship, the students will develop their personal and professional skills, gain valuable experience on interviewing, develop work-related skill that can increase their employability, have the opportunity of put academic theory into practice to solve actual engineering problems, build a network of contacts with the industry and gain an insight of what it is to work as an electronics engineer. Our Careers and Placement team will guide you throughout your studies, will keep you updated with frequent careers e-zines and give you training to help you hone your interview skills. A typical internship in a relevant sector has a duration of 1 year (with a minimum requirement of 9 months). .
