The Masters Degree in Electronic Engineering provides tuition and practice in state of the art technology areas such as wireless communications, nanotechnology, mixed-signal IC design. It will extend the student's capabilities in a number of established topic areas, e.g. semiconductor engineering and digital communication systems.
A module entitled Mathematical Modelling will enhance the analytical skills of students while important engineering management skills will be dealt with in the Technology Management module. The programme is designed to develop the student's knowledge and skills through a study programme which links theory and practice.
The programme will also provide students with experience of carrying out post-graduate level research in selected topic areas. The Masters degree requires successful completion of ten compulsory modules and two out of four elective modules. The student must also complete an applied programme consisting of the design project plus dissertation, the mini-project and the workshop seminar series.
Typical career opportunities for graduates of this programme can be found in the following industry sectors; - computer engineering, - computer networking, - telecommunications, - semiconductor devices, - IC circuit design, - analogue and digital system design, - and many others. Typical job functions include Design Engineer, Research Engineer, Project Engineer, Project Manager, Technical Manager.
