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.

Core units

  • Embedded Systems and Systems on Chip
  • Masters Research Project


Option units

  • Applied Digital Signal Processing
  • Power, Renewables and Sustainability
  • Sensing and Imaging
  • Bioengineering
  • Energy Distribution and Management


You will study and use state-of-the-art technology in electronic engineering throughout the course. You will carry out a research project which can be academic or industry-based. Assessment is through a combination of written reports, oral presentations, practical assignments and written examinations. A dual start date of September and January is available.

Career prospects
The broad field of skills in electronic engineering will allow graduates to embark on a career in electronics systems engineering, design and development in electronic engineering and electronic power engineering. Power electronics are at the heart of the global energy problem. Employers in nuclear power, renewable energy and transport need electronic engineering graduates who can implement efficient electronic power conversion systems. Electronic engineering graduates are also sought after to work in companies where the latest FPGA technologies are used to further minimise electronic components. This course is certified by EUR-ACE® European quality label.
