Discover and develop the contemporary knowledge ad skills required to be a modern electronic engineer on this dedicated course. Electronics play a major part in all aspects of our lives, from the phone we hold in our hands to the cars we drive each day. With countless applications,electronic engineers design and build components of all shapes and sizes for both industrial and home applications.
To prepare students for these roles, the course covers design, modelling and test algorithms for complex electronic assemblies,circuit design for low and high frequencies,as well as sustainability, compliance with Restriction of Hazardous Substances directives ad obsolescence solutions are also considered.
Software development is an important part of a modern electronic engineer's role, so to support this you'll use software tools such as VEE, MULTISIM and MATLAB during the course.
Key Course Features
-Specialism's within this programme feature modern power electronics and drive systems combined with their controlling mechanisms and modelling using MATLAB and state space models. -The MSc in Electronic Engineering is accredited by Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Energy Institute (EI), and provides you the required training for registering for Chartered Engineer status.
What Will You Study?
FULL-TIME MODE (SEPTEMBER INTAKE) The taught element, Part One, of the programmes will be delivered in two 12 week trimesters and each trimester has a loading of 60 credits.
The six taught modules will have lectures and tutorials/practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.

On successful completion of the taught element of the programme the students will be progressed to the Part Two, MSc dissertation to be submitted in April/May.
PART-TIME MODE The taught element, part one, of the programmes will be delivered in two academic teaching years. 80 credits or equivalent worth of modules will be delivered in the first year and 40 credits or equivalent in the second year.
The part time students would join the full time delivery with lectures and tutorials/practical work during one day on a weekly basis. The dissertation element (i.e. Part Two) will start in trimester 2 taking a further 30 weeks having a total notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.
