Course summary

The School of Engineering and Digital Arts offers research-led degrees in a wide range of research disciplines including telecommunications, mobile networks, antennas and optical and radio systems, instrumentation and control systems and biometrics/cyber-security, in a highly stimulating academic environment. Our one year MSc by Research in Electronic Engineering is an internationally recognised advanced postgraduate research degree, providing an ideal foundation for advanced skills and knowledge. Traditional MSc degrees primarily contain taught modules, whilst an MSc by Research is heavily research or practice-based and you learn through hands-on projects. Whereas a taught Masters develops expertise in existing subject knowledge, an MSc by Research places more emphasis on research and practical expertise and is project-based rather than module-based. An MSc by Research can focus on individual research skills, providing a strong foundation to build on for students considering a doctoral degree (PhD). Alternatively, our MSc by Research can be done via a practice-based approach, which is more orientated toward the industry. It is well structured, with clearly defined tasks to be completed, which will eventually lead to the final dissertation.
