Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering MSc provides an opportunity for students to develop knowledge and skills in electrical and electronic engineering topics useful to industry.

Emphasis is given to project work, with a research methods and professional skills module designed to support the project work. Students will apply their knowledge and skills to both individual and group projects, as well as writing reports and presenting technical work, thus developing the project management and numerical skills sought by employers.

A range of optional modules gives students the opportunity to specialise the application focus of the course to align with their interests. Our laboratories are equipped with hardware and software to support the different teaching activities in electrical and electronic engineering.




The MSc degree (totalling 180 credits) comprises:

  • Eight taught modules (15 credits each)
  • Individual project (60 credits)

Individual research project (ES97NLink opens in a new window)

The individual research project gives you the opportunity to demonstrate that you have independently contributed primary data and/or a new analysis of secondary data, within your chosen advanced research topic.

Projects will be highly variable in nature to reflect the range of topics within the programmes of study but all will provide you with an opportunity to achieve the learning outcomes. Thus, projects may entail experimentation, modelling, analysis and literary survey skills to develop advanced skills in the discovery and occasionally creation of new knowledge. The module also offers the chance for you to pursue curiosity driven work guided by an academic supervisor.

Please note that the detailed module information available via the hyperlink is applicable for the current academic year (2022-23).

Given the interval between the publication of courses and enrolment, some of the information may change. It is important to check our central website before you apply. Please read our terms and conditions to find out more.
