This MSc provides advanced training and enhances your skills in the specialised area of electronics, communications and computer engineering.
The course aims to provide you with a comprehensive coverage of the skills required by an engineer working in instrumentation, electronic systems, wireless and wired telecommunications, computer hardware, and software aspects of computer engineering.
The programme provides an excellent basis for engineers wishing to update their knowledge, students who wish to embark a career in advance research and development, or for students wishing to enhance their training and qualifications.
Particular features of the programme include:
After completing the taught components of the course, you will undertake an industrial internship placement with the major industry players in the field of electronics, communications and computer engineering. Subsequently, with knowledge/skills gained through industrial internship period, you will proceed with highly industry-oriented research project supervised by our expert members of faculty staffs.
This course operates on a modular basis and consists of a series of taught modules (worth 120 credits), followed by 6 months of non-credit bearing industrial internship. During the industrial internship, you will explore your interest in a specific research topic/project dissertation which will be beginning right after your industrial placement. The project dissertation will be 60-credit worth, and will begin in the following spring period.
You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources, as well as small-group and individual tutorial.
Tutors provide feedback on assignments. Our objective is to help you develop the confidence to work as a professional academic, at ease with the conventions of the discipline, and ready to tackle any area of research in electronic communications and computer engineering.
The internships are with IC design, solid-state electronics, automotive electronics or semiconductor industries that are mainly located in Ningbo/Shanghai. Our partners are either international or locally-bred, such as Ningbo Advanced Memory Technology Corporation, Atmel, Sondrel, AMD and Bosch. We may expand our internship programme in Hong Kong, South Korea, etc in the future.
The MRes Electrical Power and Energy Technology programme provides advanced and systematic education and training in the areas of electronic science and technology. It has been designed to respond to the vigorous development of electric power and energy technology in China and worldwide.
The programme contains taught courses covering solar converters, wind power systems, energy storage technology, and smart grids. It places strong emphasis on hands-on experience and practical skills development. A 12-month extensive research project is required which leads to submission of a dissertation after students have finished the taught modules.
You will develop the understanding of state-of-the-art electrical power and energy technology; be able to research and critically evaluate trends in current technologies of energy management, sustainability, renewable energy and nuclear energy; skills in planning, project management and communicating complex ideas; and experience in conducting extended research and/or developing project work.
You will benefit from:
