Why Surrey?

This degree mirrors the two-year Masters programme structure that is common in the USA, and is an ideal stepping stone to a PhD or a career in industry.

The optional professional placement component gives you the opportunity to gain experience from working in industry, which cannot normally be offered by the standard technically-focused one-year Masters programme.

Programme overview

The Electronic Engineering Euromasters programme is designed for electronic engineering graduates and professionals with an interest in gaining further qualifications in advanced, cutting-edge techniques and technologies. Current pathways offered include:

  • Communications Networks and Software
  • RF and Microwave Engineering
  • Mobile Communications Systems
  • Mobile and Satellite Communications
  • Mobile Media Communications
  • Computer Vision, Robotics and Machine Learning
  • Satellite Communications Engineering
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Space Engineering
  • Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy
  • Medical Imaging

Please note that at applicant stage, it is necessary to apply for the Electronic Engineering (Euromasters). If you wish to specialise in one of the other pathways mentioned above, you can adjust your Euromaster programme accordingly on starting the course.

Programme structure

This programme is studied full-time over 24 months. It consists of eight taught modules, two modules based on experimental reflective learning and an extended project.

Please view the website for an example module listing.


The MSc Euromasters complies with the structure defined by the Bologna Agreement, and thus it is in harmony with the Masters programme formats adhered to in European universities. Consequently, it facilitates student exchanges with our partner universities in the Erasmus Exchange programme.

A number of bilateral partnerships exist with partner institutions at which students can undertake their project. Current partnerships held by the Department include the following:

  • Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic
  • University of Prague, Czech Republic
  • Universität di Bologna, Italy
  • Universität Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain
  • Universita' degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Italy

Educational aims of the programme

The taught postgraduate degree programmes of the Department are intended both to assist with professional career development within the relevant industry and, for a small number of students, to serve as a precursor to academic research.

Our philosophy is to integrate the acquisition of core engineering and scientific knowledge with the development of key practical skills (where relevant). To fulfil these objectives, the programme aims to:

  • Attract well-qualified entrants, with a background in electronic engineering, physical sciences, mathematics, computing and communications, from the UK, Europe and overseas
  • Provide participants with advanced knowledge, practical skills and understanding applicable to the MSc degree
  • Develop participants' understanding of the underlying science, engineering, and technology, and enhance their ability to relate this to industrial practice
  • Develop participants' critical and analytical powers so that they can effectively plan and execute individual research/design/development projects
  • Provide a high level of flexibility in programme pattern and exit point
  • Provide students with an extensive choice of taught modules, in subjects for which the Department has an international and UK research reputation

A graduate from this MSc programme should:

  • Know, understand and be able to apply the fundamental mathematical, scientific and engineering facts and principles that underpin electronic engineering
  • Be able to analyse problems within the field of electronic engineering and find solutions
  • Be able to use relevant workshop and laboratory tools and equipment, and have experience of using relevant task-specific software packages to perform engineering tasks
  • Know, understand and be able to use the basic mathematical, scientific and engineering facts and principles associated with the topics within electronic engineering
  • Be aware of the societal and environmental context of his/her engineering activities
  • Be aware of commercial, industrial and employment-related practices and issues likely to affect his/her engineering activities
  • Be able to carry out research-and-development investigations
  • Be able to design electronic circuits and electronic/software products and systems

Enhanced capabilities of MSc (Euromasters) graduates:

  • Demonstrate transferable skills such as problem solving, analysis and critical interpretation of data, through the undertaking of the extended 90-credit project
  • Know how to take into account constraints such as environmental and sustainability limitations, health and safety and risk assessment
  • Have gained comprehensive understanding of design processes
  • Understand customer and user needs, including aesthetics, ergonomics and usability
  • Have acquired experience in producing an innovative design
  • Appreciate the need to identify and manage cost drivers
  • Have become familiar with the design process and the methodology of evaluating outcomes
  • Have acquired knowledge and understanding of management and business practices
  • Have gained the ability to evaluate risks, including commercial risks
  • Understand current engineering practice and some appreciation of likely developments
  • Have gained extensive understanding of a wide range of engineering materials/components
  • Understand appropriate codes of practice and industry standards
  • Have become aware of quality issues in the discipline

Global opportunities

We often give our students the opportunity to acquire international experience during their degrees by taking advantage of our exchange agreements with overseas universities.

In addition to the hugely enjoyable and satisfying experience, time spent abroad adds a distinctive element to your CV.
