Course content

This degree will equip students to have skills in both hardware/software and to be able to tackle the engineering of smart devices, Internet of Things and Power Electronics systems.

Course overview

The rapid pace of technological change requires a broad educational background, to be able to design and maintain these smart devices and IoT systems. This degree combines the core elements of Electronic Engineering where hardware inhabits, with cybersecurity and robotics, allowing the student to pull together hardware and software aspects needed to understand modern technology.
Why study this course with us?
Smart devices have considerable influence on how we live our lives, from the pervasive mobile phone to the emerging driverless vehicles. Intelligent Systems are enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm, a key ingredient of this MSc, with multiple sensors feeding data over networks, to be processed on the cloud.
Electronic and Electrical Engineering graduates are in high demand, and we are committed to helping you meet the challenge of gaining job oriented skills by teaching simultaneously the underpinning theory and practical engineering applications.
Our strong local links with industry will provide you with substantial opportunities for practical work experience.
We have modern labs for control engineering, power electronics, embedded systems, cybersecurity and robotics where students are exposed to industrially relevant software and hardware, making them ready for employment.
In this one-year MSc, you will learn the advanced theory and practical skills in cybersecurity techniques, robotics, embedded systems, Internet of Things, power electronics and control systems. You will be taught research methods, equipping you with techniques on how to approach research.
You will be guided by an experienced academic supervisor with specialist knowledge in an area that you find appealing, for your individual MSc degree project. Industrial oriented projects will also be possible with input from an industrial supervisor, as well as the academic supervisor.
Teaching methods
You will learn through a combination of lectures, seminars hardware/software laboratory sessions at Exton Park’s purpose-built facilities. The department has state-of-the-art hardware laboratories for control systems, embedded systems, Internet of Things and power electronics. PC suites running a plethora of electrical and electronic engineering software applications for device, circuit and system simulation are also available.
