What is Electrical and Electronics Engineering MSc?

Gain the knowledge and skills you need for a career in electrical and electronic engineering. The course gives you the opportunity to improve your knowledge and keep up with the latest developments in the industry.

You’ll develop your understanding of key aspects of electrical and electronics engineering, and explore how they fit into the context of industrial sectors and rapidly-developing everyday applications. You’ll address the challenges, problems and solutions involved in electrical and electronics engineering in modern industry, including optimal and intelligent electronic system design and development, and engineering operation and management. You’ll study and research new approaches in this field – and apply them to both real-world and research-orientated problems.

This course has been designed for students interested in developing their careers in both theoretical and practical areas of electrical and electronic engineering. It also prepares students wishing to continue their study to doctorial level research. Students successfully completing this course will be able to make an immediate contribution to a company’s performance and operations within the broad spectrum of modern industry.

Study style

Modules will be delivered through a series of lectures covering core concepts and material – and will be developed further during workshop/laboratory sessions where students will complete a number of associated and linked practical tasks. The assessment is 100% coursework and report based.

You’ll have the chance to work as both an individual and as part of a team on projects and topics including artificial intelligence, smart industrial robots, sensing and embedded systems, smart mechanical systems and products, intelligent industrial inspection, biomedical applications and surgical robotics.

"I have significant experience on industry projects"

“Following my academic qualifications and two PhD degrees in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, I spent 23 years in research, teaching, supervising and courses leading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in a number of national and international universities. I also have significant experience on industry projects during my work as a Process Engineer, Leader for Engineering Group, Consultant Engineer, and recently Senior Design Engineer in the modelling team at the Center of Integrated Photonics (CIP) Technologies in Ipswich, UK. As Academic Course Leader for our undergraduate and postgraduate courses I manage the programme’s content to ensure that graduates obtain the range of competences and skills required for successful careers in industrial technologies and and control engineering.”
