An upper second class honours degree in electrical or electronic engineering or a similar field from a good UK university or an equivalent international degree qualification. If you have a good 2:2 or equivalent, or relevant industrial experience, we will give your application individual consideration.
You will need to demonstrate understanding or experience in electromagnetic concepts relevant to microwave engineering, as well as an understanding of basic nonlinear devices such as transistors and diodes.
Months of entry
You will develop expertise in new and evolving areas of microwave engineering including mobile communications and the medical applications of microwaves. You will improve your advanced computer-aided design, measurement and characterisation skills. The course will also offer modules in:
- radio frequency engineering
- advanced fabrication and test
- commercialising innovation
- non-linear RF design and concepts.
You will also have the opportunity to complete an independent project as part of an intensive research stage, putting you in a strong position for a possible future in academic or industrial research. If you do not wish to undertake a research project, you can exit with a Postgraduate Certificate, thus maximising accessibility whether you are working in industry or higher education.
