Robotics, advanced manufacturing, the internet-of-things, driverless vehicles and medical technologies – we aim to find solutions to real-world challenges.

This course is for you if you have a physics or engineering background and wish to work in electronics-based industries.

You’ll study in a dedicated MSc laboratory with industry-standard hardware and software. On this MSc, you’ll explore:

  • advanced analogue and digital circuit design

  • power electronics and electrical systems

  • control of electro-mechanical systems

  • digital signal processing

  • embedded systems

  • FPGA reconfigurable systems on chips

  • machine vision technologies.

Learning from experts in their fields, you’ll gain the electronic and electrical engineering knowledge necessary for a successful career. There’s a major skills shortage in these areas worldwide, making successful graduates highly employable.

We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision. We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities described in this prospectus. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to government or regulatory requirements, or unanticipated staff changes, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
