Course content

The Department offers the MSc in Electronic Engineering by Research and the MSc in Music Technology by Research degree programmes.

The MSc by Research is a one year full-time programme (two years part-time) based on a research project which may be in any area of staff expertise. As a member of one of the Department’s research groups you will be supervised on a one-to-one basis by a member of academic staff. Progress of all research students is continually guided by a supervisor and a thesis advisory panel. The award of the degree is made following the submission and successful examination of a thesis (which is usually around 15,000 to 20,000 words).

Research Projects

As part of any application for a research degree you have to name one or more academic staff who could supervise your research. Have a look through the staff list which gives a brief description of staff research interests and use this along with the example projects to identify a potential supervisor(s). Some of the PhD projects listed may also be suitable for the MSc by Research – please contact the member of academic staff involved to find out if the project can be adapted for an MSc by Research.

MSc by Research students are also encouraged to take advanced taught courses in Electronic Engineering to help fill any gaps in the background knowledge required for the research project. The choice of courses taken will be made together with the supervisor, at the beginning of the programme.

Information for international students

For applicants whose native language is not English, the minimum University English language requirements of IELTS 6.0 (with at least 5.5 in each of the four language components) or the equivalent are expected.
