Take advantage of one of our 100 Master’s Scholarships to study at Swansea University
, the Times Good University Guide’s Welsh University of the Year 2017. Postgraduate loans are also available to English and Welsh domiciled students. For more information on fees and funding please visit our website.
As a student on the Master's course in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, you will develop specialist skills aligned with the College of Engineering’s research interests and reflecting the needs of the electronics industry.
The MSc Electronic and Electrical Engineering course covers the ability to apply the knowledge gained in the course creatively and effectively for the benefit of the profession, to plan and execute a programme of work efficiently, and to be able, on your own initiative, to enhance your skills and knowledge as required throughout your career.
Industry-standard equipment, such as a scanning tunnelling microscope for atomic scale probing or an hp4124 parameter analyzer for power devices, is used for simulation, implementation and communication.
There will be the opportunity to choose and apply suitable prototyping and production methods and components, gain knowledge in constructing and evaluating advanced models of various manufacturing techniques, and be able to differentiate, analyse and discuss various product lifetime management solutions and how they affect different sectors of industry.
The modules on the MSc Electronic and Electrical Engineering course can also be studied as stand-alone modules for those who are in employment seeking professional development or further knowledge in particular subject fields. The College of Engineering held accreditation for all Electronic and Electrical Engineering Degrees from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) from September 1982 to August 2016. We are currently undergoing the re-accreditation process that will be completed in March 2017 which is for September 2016 to August 2021. Please contact [email protected]
for more information.
This MSc Electronic and Electrical degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng(Hons) or an Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree.
Modules on the MSc Electronic and Electrical Engineering course can vary each year but you could expect to study:

At Swansea University
, Electronic and Electrical Engineering has an active interface with industry and many of our activities are sponsored by companies such as Agilent, Auto Glass, BT and Siemens.
This discipline has a good track record of working with industry both at research level and in linking industry-related work to our postgraduate courses. We also have an industrial advisory board that ensures our taught courses maintain relevance.
Our research groups work with many major UK, Japanese, European and American multinational companies and numerous small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to pioneer research. This activity filters down and influences the project work that is undertaken by all our postgraduate students.
Employment in industry, research centres, government or as entrepreneurs in a wide range of careers, from a design and development role for electronic and electrical equipment or as a technological specialist contributing to a multi-disciplinary team in a range of fields, including medicine, travel, business and education are just some of the potential career pathways available to you as an Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduate.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranks Engineering at Swansea as 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines.
The REF assesses the quality of research in the UK Higher Education sector, assuring us of the standards we strive for.
The REF shows that 94% of research produced by our academic staff is of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. This has increased from 73% in the 2008 RAE.
Research pioneered at the College of Engineering harnesses the expertise of academic staff within the department. This ground-breaking multidisciplinary research informs our world-class teaching with several of our staff leaders in their fields.
With recent academic appointments strengthening electronics research at the College, the Electronic Systems Design Centre (ESDC) has been re-launched to support these activities.
The Centre aims to represent all major electronics research within the College and to promote the Electrical and Electronics Engineering degree.
Best known for its research in ground-breaking Power IC technology, the key technology for more energy efficient electronics, the Centre is also a world leader in semiconductor device modelling, FEM and compact modelling.
