Opportunities to focus on advanced digital signal processing and communication principles as well as management skills while studying theoretical and practical electronic engineering and management topics.
Frequent access to speakers of international repute through seminars and external lectures, enabling you to keep abreast of emerging knowledge in electronic engineering and related fields.
The Department of Informatics has areputation for delivering research-led teachingand project supervision from leading experts in their field.
The Electronic Engineering with Management MSc course will prepare you for work in the industry at a relatively advanced level in electronic engineering or management roles. You will study Project Management, Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing, and Topics on data and signal analysis as well as the Principles of Management. There are also opportunities to explore a broad range of optional modules, allowing you the freedom to develop your study pathway to reflect your interests. You will complete the course in one year, studying September to September and taking a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits, including 60 credits that will come from an individual project of 15000 words.
To provide practical and theoretical knowledge of modern electronic engineering techniques sufficient to prepare students for careers in the field of electronic engineering on a managerial level.
Course format and assessment
We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the programme. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.
During your work on the Individual Project you will have regular meetings with your project supervisor, but you are expected to spend the majority of your time in self-study to complete the project work.
The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of written examinations, essays, coursework and individual or group projects and oral presentations. The research project will be assessed through dissertation of around 10,000 words.
Graduates of this programme are excellently placed to progress into management or technical leadership positions in industry.
