Modules

Overview

The MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems curriculum consists of a fixed menu of study and a substantial MSc project. Successful completion of both parts leads to the award of MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems. Completion of the taught modules without a project leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.

Prospective students should be aware that most of the mandatory modules include an element of programming, usually in the C/C++ language.

Global ready

Did you know we help more students travel internationally than any other UK university according to data from the experts in higher education data and analysis, HESA?

In 2014/15, we were able to provide a total of 2,264 student experiences abroad that lasted at least five days, 73% of which were our own organised trips for undergraduates and 27% from postgraduate travel. Plus, we've been able to help more than 5,000 students spend time in other countries, from America to China, India and beyond.

Much of this travel is made possible through our Global Leaders Programme, which enables students to prepare for the challenges of the global employment market, as well as strengthening and developing their broader personal and professional skills.
