Overview of the programme Electronics is now an important part of many leading edge industries. In the automotive industry, for example electronic engineers are required to design engine control units, dashboard indicators, air-conditioning, safety, braking, and infotainment systems.    Electronic engineering graduates are also desired for the fast moving consumer goods industry. e.g. development of the latest smart screens and the use of intelligent transducers in both and industrial and a home automation environment.   To prepare students for these fast changing roles, the Electronics programme covers design, modelling and test algorithms for complex electronic assemblies. Analysis of electronic circuit design for both low and high frequencies is an important element of the course content.   Software development is an integral part of a modern Electronic Engineers role and to support this, software tools such as VEE, MULTISIM and MATLAB are used extensively in the course. Consideration of sustainability, compliance with RoHS directives and obsolescence solutions are also considered.

Course programme

  • Specialism's within this programme feature modern power electronics and drive systems combined with their controlling mechanisms and modelling using MATLAB and state space models.
  • The MSc in Electronic Engineering is accredited by Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Energy Institute (EI), and provides candidates the required training for registering for Chartered Engineers.

Full-time Mode (September Intake)

The taught element, Part One, of the programmes will be delivered in two 12 week trimesters and each trimester has a loading of 60 credits.

The six taught modules will have lectures and tutorials/practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.

Part Two will then take a further 15 weeks having a notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.

Full-time Mode (January Intake)

For the January intake, students will study three specialist modules first during the second trimester from January to May.

Other three common modules the students will study in the first trimester of the next academic year from September to January.

On successful completion of the taught element of the programme the students will be progressed to the Part Two, MSc dissertation to be submitted in April/May.

Part-time Mode

The taught element, part one, of the programmes will be delivered in two academic teaching years. 80 credits or equivalent worth of modules will be delivered in the first year and 40 credits or equivalent in the second year.

The part time students would join the full time delivery with lectures and tutorials/practical work during one day on a weekly basis. The dissertation element (i.e. Part Two) will start in trimester 2 taking a further 30 weeks having a total notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.
