We will consider applications with an overall grade of 2:2 and above in a subject such as electronic engineering, physics, mathematics or another engineering discipline with an equivalent mathematics background. Applicants from undergraduate courses who do not have a substantial covering of engineering mathematics should contact us.
Months of entry
Our MSc Electronic Engineering enables you to acquire the essential knowledge, skills, competency, and critical awareness necessary for a rewarding career in the electronics industry. We prepare you for a career in analogue and digital circuit design, an area with a major skills shortage worldwide and particularly in the UK.
The content of our course is far-reaching and includes theory, practice, simulation and realisation underpinned by our 40 years of expertise in electronics and telecommunications.
Our course brings together our teaching, research and industrial contacts to form a vocational offering with enhanced postgraduate employability. You will be equipped with skills in the areas of:
- Analogue and digital design
- CAD and IC design
- Time and frequency domain analysis
- Fault analysis
- Embedded processing
- DSPs and fast prototyping
All of your acquired knowledge culminates in a project which sees the design, simulation, construction, testing and manufacture of a complex electronic system aimed at the industrial or consumer markets.
Our School is a community of scholars leading the way in technological research and development. Today’s electronic engineers are creative people who are focused and committed, yet restless and experimental. We are home to many of the world’s top engineers, and our work is driven by creativity and imagination as well as technical excellence.
We are ranked Top 10 in the UK in the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities, with more than two-thirds of our research rated ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent (REF 2014).
