  • Located in central London, giving access to major libraries and leading scientific societies including the Chartered Institute for IT (BCS), the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
  • 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 a reputation for delivering research-led teaching and project supervision from leading experts in their field.


The Electronic Engineering with Management MSc course will prepare you for work in 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 & 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.


We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.

You are expected to spend approximately 10 hours work per credit for each module you attend in your degree, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15 credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module.


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 individual project will be assessed through a 15,000 word report.
