Program Description

MSc in Electronic Engineering

Manchester Metropolitan University


This course covers the key components needed to design and implement modern electronic systems; the use of modern embedded systems for single-chip solutions and higher power electronics; and links to renewable energy systems, fuel cells and hybrid vehicles.

You will study the application of electronic systems and examine possible future uses. The course will improve your skills in the integration and control of electronic systems and link to image processing, the study of which is delivered by our world-leading imaging group. A project completes the MSc, allowing you to specialise in your chosen area of interest.

This course starts in September 2017 and January 2018. Please note that January starters will have a course duration of approximately 15 months.

Course details

Our engineering Masters programmes are designed to meet the needs of an industry which looks to employ postgraduates who can learn independently and apply critical thinking to real-world problems. Many of the staff who teach in the School also have experience of working in the industry and have well-established links and contacts in their industry sector, ensuring your education and training is relevant to future employment.

Masters projects are often linked to ongoing research. Our researchers are a mix of postdoctoral researchers, research degree students and visiting fellows and professors from academia and industry. Recent research awards from the UK Research Councils, EU Horizon 2020, InnovateUK and industry partners include £630k for next-generation energy storage devices via 3D printing of graphene and £600k to develop smart communication systems.

This course starts in September 2017 and January 2018.
