Course content

The MSc (sandwich) Sensors, Data and Management is an innovative programme designed to be an interface between the University and Industry.
  • Follow this application-led curriculum, designed in line with advice from industrial partners, which emphasises an understanding of the concepts and theories that underpin the theory, as well as its practical application within the real-world
  • Enjoy high quality teaching, supported by practical laboratory and group activities, with state-of-the-art hardware and software facilities and excellent technical support
  • This programme is available as a standard full-time Masters one-year programme (180 credits) or as an extended full-time Masters two-year programme (240 credits).
  • On both versions in semesters one and two you will study full-time at LJMU completing the taught modules.
  • If you are on the one-year programme, you will complete your Dissertation over the summer.
If you are on the two-year programme, you will undertake the Group Design Project and your Dissertation in the second year.
Industrial organisations in different sectors have identified a gap in the market and the need for Engineers with good leadership and interpersonal skills in addition to their technical ability.
This programme aims to be an interface between University and industry. It provides appropriate training to our students in interpersonal and leadership skills as well as the traditional technical skills explored in the modules and industrial placement*.
This programme is available fulltime over one year or two years full time( 240 credits).
The Group Design Project aims to apply engineering, technology and scientific knowledge to a real-world design problem. Detailed ideas will be explored and developed through design, experimentation, computer modelling and/or manufacture.
Why should I choose the 2 year route?
The Group Design Project will encompass the wider aspects of social, economic, political, legislative, environmental, cultural, ethical and sustainability issues required in the modern environment.
  • This route will equip you with the transferrable project management skills needed to excel in your chosen career.
  • You will work in groups and meet regularly with an academic supervisor and any internal or external stakeholders in order to develop an effective team-working ethic.
  • This route is designed for international students who wish to apply their knowledge to professional practice in the UK
Industrial organisations across all sectors have identified a gap in the market for Engineers with good leadership and interpersonal skills in addition to their technical abilities.
You will present your work through regular meetings with your supervisor as well as submitting progress reports and oral presentations. In this way you will have the chance to hone your communicative skills and leave University ready for the workplace.
As an alternative to the group project on the two-year programme an industrial placement is a possibility in year two.
You will need to apply directly to companies offering placements – the offer of a placement will be subject to a successful interview with the employer. Although the University will provide support and guidance to find an appropriate placement they are not guaranteed.
Please note that you cannot apply for the sandwich route before coming to LJMU – further information about applying to placement opportunities will be given during semester two of year one.
