This course builds on our world-class research work in electrical and electronic engineering, materials and devices, robotics, mechatronics, computer networks and telecommunications, big data, and informatics. It is funded by the European Union, Research Councils, Royal Society, Knowledge Transfer Programmes, and industrial companies.
The course provides knowledge, experience and skills that are essential for research and development work. It is research-oriented, with 80% of the time spent on a research project and the other 20% on taught modules. It is designed to develop key research skills, build up in-depth technical knowledge and understanding as well as project management skills, communications skills and presentation skills.
You can choose the project, either as a part of ongoing research work in our research laboratories or in our partner industrial companies. This course can also be tailored as an in-house course.
Example project topics (not exhaustive):
- Mobile Inspection Robots and Non-Destructive Testing Techniques, Design of Control and Embedded Systems, Elastic Waves Modelling
- Infrared and Electronic Sensing, Electronic Design, Data Analysis and Mathematical Modelling
- Instrumentation Programming, Software Engineering, Electromagnetics, Magnetic Materials and Devices
- Thin Film Materials and Devices, Photovoltaics, Low Loss Ceramic Resonators, Antenna Design, Broadband Technologies, Power Over Air
- Mobile and Wireless Communications, Ad-hoc Networks, MIMO, WiFi, WiMax, Zigbee, FPGAs, Linux Clustering, Mobile Programming, Network Programming.
