About this course

Develop the skills to work on challenges like cyber security, sustainable energy production or smart medical equipment. This integrated masters in electronic engineering will give you hands-on experience of designing and building electronic systems. This accredited degree will give you access to professional registration as a Chartered Engineer.

You’ll specialise in how mobile devices interact with wireless networks and how data can be kept secure and accurate. Such devices have constrained power and signal processing ability, and you’ll learn how to work with those limits to build useful, innovative systems.

From the beginning, this course connects theory with new research and with industry applications. You’ll learn about the components and systems that make electronic devices work. You’ll gain the programming and mathematical skills that underpin a robust engineering training.

You’ll specialise in cyber security, including issues such as data breaches. You’ll also specialise in hardware and software design for mobile electronic systems. In years 3 and 4, you can choose from a broad range of topics from across Electronics and Computer Science.

Our research facilities include a high-voltage laboratory and an electronics lab with industry-standard equipment. Labs are set up so students can analyse the features of hand-held devices using scenarios such as group gaming exercises.

As part of your degree you can:

  • take modules in quantum technology, robotics or nanomaterials

  • spend a semester studying in another country

  • learn a language from scratch or at any level

This degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
