You should have a good second-class degree or above (good 2:1 minimum for Industrial Experience option) or equivalent in electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics, or a related discipline.Unrelated degrees will be considered if substantial equivalent industrial experience is shown.For international students whose first language is not English, we require English language qualifications IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 92 (internet based).
Months of entry
We offer Industrial Experience options on all our full-time taught MSc programmes, which combine academic study with a one-year industrial placement between your taught modules and summer project. Taking the Industrial Experience option as part of your degree gives you a route to develop real-world, practical problem-solving skills gained through your programme of study in a professional context.
This can give you an important edge in the graduate job market. As a leading research School, we have excellent links with industry. We also employ dedicated staff to help you arrange your year in industry. The Industrial Experience programmes are highly competitive and attract the best students given the limited availability of placements. We are unable to guarantee all students secure an industrial placement, as our industrial partners conduct their own employment application and interview processes.
