Course summary

Develop specialist knowledge of electrical and electronic engineering devices, processes and systems. This course is accredited by the IET and InstMC. Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering MSc provides an opportunity for students to develop knowledge and skills in electrical and electronic engineering topics useful to industry. Emphasis is given to project work, with a research methods and professional skills module designed to support the project work. Students will apply their knowledge and skills to both individual and group projects, as well as writing reports and presenting technical work, thus developing the project management and numerical skills sought by employers. A range of optional modules gives students the opportunity to specialise the application focus of the course to align with their interests. Our laboratories are equipped with hardware and software to support the different teaching activities in electrical and electronic engineering. This information is applicable for 2024 entry. Given the interval between the publication of courses and enrolment, some of the information may change. It is important to check our website before you apply.
