Course content

Robotics, advanced manufacturing, the internet-of-things, driverless vehicles and medical technologies – we aim to find solutions to real-world challenges.

This course is for you if you have a physics or engineering background and wish to work in electronics-based industries.

You’ll study in a dedicated MSc laboratory with industry-standard hardware and software. On this MSc, you’ll explore:

  • advanced analogue and digital circuit design
  • power electronics and electrical systems
  • control of electro-mechanical systems
  • digital signal processing
  • embedded systems
  • FPGA reconfigurable systems on chips
  • machine vision technologies.
Learning from experts in their fields, you’ll gain the electronic and electrical engineering knowledge necessary for a successful career. There’s a major skills shortage in these areas worldwide, making successful graduates highly employable.

We are currently seeking accreditation for this course from the IET. If accreditation is approved, we would apply to back-date this accreditation to cover academic years 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23. At the present time you should therefore apply for the course on the basis that it is not accredited.
