Course content

This conversion masters programme builds on the strengths of the Queen Mary University School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. These strengths include world-leading research in: networks, antenna design and electromagnetics, computer vision and computer theory. The conversion course is aimed at graduates from mathematics, science and other non-engineering backgrounds, who would like to pursue a career in electronic and electrical engineering. This conversion masters programme features a common first semester of: analogue electronics, digital systems design (incorporating an on-line pre-sessional module in digital circuit design), control systems, embedded systems (incorporating C programming). In the second semester the electronic engineering stream features choices from: advanced control systems, critical systems, integrated circuit design, real-time DSP, while the electrical engineering stream features choices from: bioelectricity, microwave and millimeterwave communication systems, power electronics, and electrical power engineering. Both streams have a Project / industrial project during the 3rd (summer) semester.

Please note this programme has a pre-requisite module which must be completed before you can start the programme. The pre-requisite module is ECS791P Digital Electronics.
