Course details

The modular structure of the MSc Electrical Engineering offers you a great deal of flexibility, allowing you to choose the modules that most reflect your interests and feed into your research project.

After completing the taught components of the course, you will undertake a major piece of advanced independent research over the summer under the supervision of a specialist in your chosen area.

We will provide you with advice and guidance while you select and refine your area of study, and offer close supervision and support as you complete your research and your MSc.

You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources. Teaching is a mix of lectures, workshops, lab work, tutorials and projects, with assessment usually performed via  formal examinations and coursework.

Lecturers provide feedback on your assignments. Our objective is to help you develop the confidence to work as a professional, at ease with the conventions of the discipline, and ready to tackle any area of research in electrical engineering.
