As a student on the Master's course in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, you will develop specialist skills aligned with the College of Engineering’s research interests and reflecting the needs of the electronics industry.
MSc Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Swansea University is accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding, and skills as a Chartered Engineer. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognized by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
The MSc Electronic and Electrical Engineering course covers the ability to apply the knowledge gained in the course creatively and effectively for the benefit of the profession, to plan and execute a programme of work efficiently, and to be able, on your own initiative, to enhance your skills and knowledge as required throughout your career.
Industry-standard equipment, such as a scanning tunneling microscope for atomic scale probing or an hp4124 parameter analyzer for power devices, is used for simulation, implementation, and communication.
There will be the opportunity to choose and apply suitable prototyping and production methods and components, gain knowledge in constructing and evaluating advanced models of various manufacturing techniques and be able to differentiate, analyze and discuss various product lifetime management solutions and how they affect different sectors of industry.
