MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering

General

Program Description

Course overview

Many employers are desperate to recruit highly trained electrical and electronic engineers and this MSc provides you with advanced knowledge across a broad area, as well as highly sought and transferable skills that are valued by employers.

It is a flexible programme with a range of options to accommodate your preferences, allowing you to gain subject-specific and generic skills, and combines academic depth with current industrial practice in the context of real engineering applications. You study a balance of core areas and special topics related to research and emerging technologies. Many of the projects are carried out in research groups or are linked to the industry.

Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this programme meets for further learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration
