MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Course Description


This Electrical and Electronic Engineering MSc aims to further develop students' knowledge of and expertise in specialist engineering subjects associated with the main application areas of electrical and electronic engineering. Particular prominence is given to electrical power systems and machines, robotics and sensors, digital systems incorporating VHDL and signal processing.

An emphasis on applied technical work will strengthen the engineering development skills of students from an academic background.


The programme is delivered by a specialist team of academics;
electrical and electronic research carried out in the Faculty is recognised as 5% World-leading, 45% Internationally Excellent, 25% International, 25% National (RAE 2008);
access to state-of-the-art studio, laboratory and computing facilities within the new Engineering and Computing building;
personal tutor support throughout the postgraduate study;
excellent links with a number of industrial organisations enable access to the latest technology and real-world applications.


The work carried out on this course will provide the demonstrable expertise necessary to help secure professional level employment in related industries. The topic areas also provide opportunities for interaction with the department's Applied Research Centre who will source some of the individual projects for the programme.

The MSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering curriculum consists of six mandatory core topics, two options from a list of up to six, and a substantial MSc project. Successful completion of all elements leads to the award of MSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Completion of the taught modules without a project leads to the award of a postgraduate diploma.

The mandatory study topics are as follows:

VHDL for Digital System Design;
Electrical Machines and Drives;
Power Systems;
Digital Signal Processing Technology;
Robotics – Kinematics, Dynamics and Applications;
Sensor and Measurement Technology.
The remainder of the taught programme is made up of two optional modules. The options available may vary from year to year but currently include:

Mathematics and Computing for Control;
Linear Control Engineering;
Digital Computer Control Systems;
Wireless Intelligent Systems;
Microprocessor Applications;
Project Management.
The substantial individual project gives students the opportunity to work on a detailed area of related technology alongside an experienced academic supervisor. Some projects are offered in conjunction with the work of the Faculty’s research centres or industry.

Typical project titles include:

Embedded network interface development for measurement instruments;
Wireless sensors for industrial thermocouple temperature monitoring;
Power system network simulation;
Wind turbine generator simulation.
