The Electrical and Electronic Engineering masters explores the latest in manufacturing and systems engineering at an advanced level. You can choose to specialise in communications or mechatronics.
Take the Digital Systems and Telecommunications specialist route and create products and systems using electronics and communication technologies.
Choose the Mechatronics route and study the electronic control of mechanical and intelligent robotic systems.
From either discipline, graduates go on to a wide range of careers in digital communications, robotics, engineering and energy sectors.
With the Electrical and Electronic Engineering masters you will:
-Work with the latest technology and design.
-Graduate with a specialist degree that gives you opportunities for advanced engineering roles.
-Enjoy an international experience with the option of student exchange.
-Further develop your skills through placements and industry-led case studies.
-Qualify with an internationally-recognised degree accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Accredited by the Energy Institute, this Masters programme aims to enable graduates to qualify for entry into the profession of electrical and electronic engineering with a bias towards energy engineering and renewable technologies.
In addition to the knowledge and understanding of electrical and electronic engineering there will be an integrated understanding of power systems, instrumentation systems, telecommunications systems and technologies, and business, reinforced with personal and inter-personal skills.
The programme prepares students for the next stage in their careers, whether entering employment or to enable those undertaking the programme to contribute towards research in the discipline. It also provides continuing professional development opportunities related to the electrical and electronic engineering professions and sectors.
Industries where graduates are likely to find employment opportunities include electrical power generation and distribution, renewable energy engineering, telecommunications engineering, transport engineering and electronic engineering.
The programme will provide an excellent opportunity for students wishing to pursue a professionally qualified career in the electrical power industry, the renewable energy sector, the offshore industry and in industrial power electronics design.
Students will be assessed via a combination of examinations, coursework, presentations,case study analysis, reports and the final dissertation.
MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and its students meet the UK Engineering Council’s further learning requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
UK Honours degree 2:2 (or equivalent) in electronic or electrical engineering or related subject.
