Course content

Our MSc in Electronic Engineering offers content that is different to many other similarly-titled courses. It equips you with a skill set that is in demand by industry worldwide, allowing you to maximise your employability by taking a course that is broad in scope but challenging in detail.

Electronic Engineering provides a broad masters-level study of some of the most important aspects of electronic engineering today. It builds on your undergraduate knowledge of core aspects of electronics, supported by a module in Engineering Business Environment and Energy Policies, which provides you with an understanding of the context of engineering in the early 21st Century.

The course embraces a number of themes in areas identified as being generally under-represented in many other courses, such as power electronics and electromagnetic compatibility, providing you with as wide a range of employment opportunities as possible, whether this is in industry or continuing in research at university.

The course has achieved accreditation by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) to CEng level for the full five year period.
