Programme Structure

There are two semesters of taught material and a summer session working on a project or dissertation. September entry students start with management courses and January entry students with engineering courses.

Semester 1

You will be based in the Business School, developing knowledge and skills of management principles and techniques. We offer an applied approach, with an emphasis on an informed critical evaluation of information, and the subsequent application of concepts and tools to the core areas of business and management.

Core courses

· Contemporary issues in human resource management

· Managing creativity and innovation

· Managing innovative change

· Marketing management

· Operations management

· Project management.

Semester 2

You will study engineering courses, which aim to enhance your group working and project management capability at the same time as improving your depth of knowledge in chosen electronics and electrical engineering subjects.

Core course

· Integrated systems design project

Optional courses (a choice of two)

· Computer communications

· Electrical energy systems

· Micro- and nano-technology

· Microwave and millimetre wave circuit design

· Microwave electronic and optoelectronic devices

· Optical communications

· Real-time embedded programming.

Project or dissertation

You will undertake individual project or dissertation work in the summer period (May - August). This will give you an opportunity to apply and consolidate your newly learned skills and show to future employers that you have been working on cutting edge projects relevant to the industry. Project and dissertation options are closely linked to staff research interests. September entry students have a choice of management dissertation topics in addition to electronics and electrical engineering projects, and January entry students have a choice of electronics and electrical engineering projects.

Projects

· To complete the MSc degree you must undertake a project worth 60 credits. This is an integral part of the MSc programme and many have a technical or business focus.

· The project will integrate subject knowledge and skills that you acquire during the MSc programme.

· The project is an important part of your MSc where you can apply your newly learned skills and show to future employers that you have been working on cutting edge projects relevant to the industry.

· You can choose a topic from a list of MSc projects in Electronic and Electrical Engineering or the Management portion of your degree.

· Alternatively, should you have your own idea for a project, department members are always open to discussion of topics.

· Students who start in January must choose an engineering focussed project.
