Course content

If you're ready to build on your electronic engineering skills and knowledge, become an expert in the field and step up to more ambitious roles in the industry, our MSc Electronic Engineering degree course will help you meet your ambitions.

On this course, you'll expand your current knowledge by learning about key topics – such as microwave and wireless technology, and the practical application and design aspects of electronic systems. In the process, you'll update your skills too.

You'll graduate with the ability to apply new technologies in the design and implementation of modern systems. And because the course has been designed to meet a skills shortage in the field, you'll be in an excellent position to pursue roles from product design to aerospace engineering.

You can start this course in September or January (full time only in January).
