The work carried out on this course will provide the demonstrable expertise necessary to help secure professional level employment in related industries. The topic areas also provide opportunities for interaction with the Faculty’s Research Centres who will source some of the individual projects for the programme.
The MSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering curriculum consists of a fixed menu of study and a substantial MSc project. Successful completion of all elements leads to the award of MSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Completion of the taught modules without a project leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.
The mandatory modules are as follows:
- Digital System Design with VHDL
- Electrical Machines and Drives
- Power Systems
- Digital Signal and Image Processing
- Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics and Applications
- Measurement and Sensor Technology
- Microprocessor Applications
- Renewable Energy and Smart Grid
- Individual Project
The substantial individual project gives students the opportunity to work on a detailed area of related technology alongside an experienced academic supervisor. Some projects are offered in conjunction with the work of the Faculty’s Research Centres or industry.
Typical project titles include:
- Embedded network interface development for measurement instruments;
- Wireless sensors for industrial thermocouple temperature monitoring;
- Power system network simulation;
- Wind turbine generator simulation.
As part of this course you will study Global Professional Development, a beneficial new 10-credit module developed in partnership with the CMI. Explore this module's content and benefits here.
