The main distinguishing feature of our two-year programme is the professional training component (which cannot normally be offered by the standard technically-focused one year MSc) with the potential of gaining experience from working in industry.
The Electronic Engineering (Euromasters) MSc mirrors the two-year Masters programme structure that is common in the USA, and is an ideal stepping stone to a PhD.

Our MSc Euromasters programmes are designed for electronic engineering students and professionals with an interest in gaining further qualifications in advanced, cutting-edge techniques and technologies in the selected pathway, with enhanced project, as well as training in transferable skills including business awareness and management. Some industrial placements will be available.
Here is a list of Electronic Engineering (Euromasters) MScs offered:
- Communications Networks and Software
- RF and Microwave Systems Engineering
- Mobile Communications Systems
- Mobile and Satellite Communications
- Mobile Media Communications
- Computer Vision, Robotics and Machine Learning
- Satellite Communications Engineering
- Electronic Engineering
- Space Engineering
- Nanotechnology and Nanoelectronic Devices
Please note that at applicant stage, it is necessary to apply for the Electronic Engineering (Euromasters). If you wish to specialise in one of the above pathways, you can adjust your Euromaster programme accordingly on starting the course.
The advanced taught technical content, which is identical to the corresponding standard one-year MSc programmes, is in sub-disciplines of electronic engineering closely aligned with the internationally-leading research conducted in the four research centres of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (http://www.surrey.ac.uk/ee/
). The main distinguishing feature of this two-year programme is the professional training component (which cannot normally be offered by the standard technically-focused one year MSc) with the potential of gaining experience from working in industry.
The MSc Euromasters complies with the structure defined by the Bologna Agreement, and thus it is in harmony with the Masters programme formats adhered to in European universities. Consequently, it facilitates student exchanges with our partner universities in the Erasmus Exchange programme. A number of bilateral partnerships exist with partner institutions at which students can undertake their project. Current partnerships held by the Department include the following:
- Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic
- University of Prague, Czech Republic
- Universität di Bologna, Italy
- Universität Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain
- Universita' degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Italy
The MSc Euromasters format is assembled from existing programmes and modules. Year 1 of the programme consists of eight taught modules subject to the validated patterns of study for the standard MSc format, totalling 120 credits. Year 2 is constituted by two Engineering Professional Studies (EPS) modules (30 credits) plus a 90 credit project. There is the option of taking the first semester EPS module in Year 2 with a 3-6 months placement in industry. The Department will use its contacts with industry to help students to find suitable placements.
Standard MSc programmes taught modules within the validated patterns of study. The programme of study in Year 1 finishes in June.
There are two possible programme structures for Year 2.
1. Students not going to industry start their project in Semester 1 of Year 2. The project is worth 45 credits in each semester, and finishes at the end of Semester 2 in June. In addition to the project, students take the professional studies module EPS1 in Semester 1 (15 credits) and EPS2 in Semester 2 (15 credits)
2. Students going to industry for three - six months start their project in Semester 2 (45 credits) and continue over the summer period, finishing in September with the standard MSc cohort. In addition they take the professional studies modules EPS1P in Semester 1 (15 credits), and EPS2 in Semester 2 (15 credits)
