Sensor R&D and applications have dramatically increased over recent years and the technologies and applications are extremely varied. This has been driven by new sensor technologies, developments in electronics and data networking enabling the collection of data efficiently and the increased demand for improved efficiencies which require active monitoring and feedback. It is difficult to think of any area of engineering which does not make use of sensing technology. The aim of this programme will be to provide students with a core understanding of the generic instrumentation and signal processing requirements common to all sensing applications together with a choice of more specialised modules relating to specific application areas and industries.
Taught modules and examinations/assessments are completed during the six months October to March. After successful completion students may then progress to the six month individual research project during April to October. We endeavour to place students with industrial sponsors for the duration of their projects, with all other projects being undertaken at the University.
Qualifications from outside the UK or a combination of qualifications and/or experience will also be considered. The course administration office can provide advice on whether these qualifications are the equivalent of the level of Honours Degree required. International students whose native language is not English will also need to demonstrate English Language ability (e.g. IELTS 6.5, TOEFL score of 600 or equivalent).
A good first or second class Honours Degree from a UK academic organisation in a relevant engineering field, science or closely related discipline.
UK/EU students: £4,350 (2010), International students: £12,250 (2010)
Recipient: Aston University
