NOTE Are you a student from outside the EU? If you are an International student we have designed a version of this award especially for you! It is called the Extended International Master in Electronic Engineering. It includes an extra semester of preliminary study to prepare you for postgraduate learning in the UK. We strongly recommend that all international students take this option as it is proven to improve your chances of success. Take a look at this alternative course here.
About this course: The course provides coherent and up to date coverage of Electronic Engineering with modules in Microelectronic Systems, VLSI, Digital Signal Processing,Research Methods, Embedded Systems,Analogue and Digital Electronics and Telecommunications. The approach spans specification and design to realisation, with particular emphasis on the application of industry standard CAD tools and DSP devices to develop solutions to practical engineering problems.
The course consists of a taught programme followed by an individual project. The taught programme is based on eight modules. Normally these modules are taken over two semesters for the full time route. The individual project is then studied over a further semester to complete the Masters Award.
Core modules are: -Research Methods & Project Management -Photovoltaic Technology -Digital Electronic Systems -Digital Signal Processing -MSc Project -Embedded Real Time Systems -Telecommunications
Option Modules are: -Technical Paper Authoring -Optical Fibre Communication Systems -Control Systems -Wireless Navigation Systems
Semester 1 runs from September to January and Semester 2 from February to June. Study of the MSc normally commences in September. The possibility of an optional industrial placement either between the taught programme and the individual project is also available which may involve working in another European country.
Future option for graduates include employment in local, national and international industries normally initially in Research and Development roles although many progress to management positions. Alternatively graduates may choose to pursue further academic qualifications and register for a PhD programme.
