Masters degrees in Systems Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to assemble a range of electrical, electronic and mechanical components within structures and machinery.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Engineering subject.
Courses in this field are highly interdisciplinary in approach, combining methods from Mechanics, Electrical Engineering, and Engineering Design.
You will explore a range of control and power systems across a range of devices and structures, analysing architectures and systems design and thinking processes. You may also explore components such as sensors and imaging processors, network and wireless communications, software and hardware. Systems range from mobile technology, transport, spacecraft, environment, defence and security.
You will also investigate the risk and reliability of these systems, the regulation surrounding their production, best practice and quality assurance, and the economic and social contexts of their existence.
Careers may include building and construction management, real estate, facilities management, procurement and asset management, defence policy, environmental regulation or health and safety monitoring.
