Course content

In addition to the modules taken as part of a standard MSc in Embedded Systems, the 'with industrial studies' programme includes an industrial placement module. This placement takes place during the summer, following the sessional examinations. After the industrial placement you return to the University to begin an individual project.
To qualify for this degree you must meet the standard requirements for an MSc, obtain and pass an industrial placement. To obtain a placement students must pass the January examinations at the first attempt and be selected by a company.

It is possible to contact members of staff at the School of Electronic, Electrical and Computer Engineering through Skype. This will only be available when the relevant person is in their office. To avoid disappointment it is therefore best to email in advance in order to arrange a good time to call.
