Course content

Description
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 and January. Please note that January starters will have a course duration of approximately 15 months.
