About this course
Our electrical and electronic engineering courses offer a breadth and depth of study that you’ll find at few other UK universities. This masters degree builds on the BEng programme by giving you the opportunity to learn the management skills needed to become a leader in this industry and to explore additional specialist modules.
Electrical engineering is about the generation, distribution and use of electricity on a large scale, while electronics is all about the components and systems that make electronic devices work. On this electrical and electronic engineering degree you’ll gain a thorough grounding in both disciplines, and learn how they interrelate.
You’ll learn from researchers who will share their passion for their areas of expertise, which include high-voltage electrical engineering, sustainable energy and machine learning. Examples of practical design work on this course include designing and testing a microprocessor, a robot, or a large integrated circuit.
You can choose to study topics to suit your career path, including:
You’ll learn to use industry-standard software for tasks such as the simulation of power line systems. For some students, a design project can lead to the publication of their first scientific paper. You’ll also gain direct industry experience through work placements.
You can take this course with an additional year-long, paid placement. Apply with UCAS code HH60 for the Industrial Studies option.
