This is a highly flexible course, which gives you the opportunity to choose modules according to your specific interests and requirements.
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.
This course operates on a modular basis and consists of a series of taught modules (worth 120 credits) - followed by a 60-credit research project undertaken during the summer period.
You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources, as well as small-group and individual tuition.
Tutors provide feedback on assignments. Our objective is to help you develop the confidence to work as a professional academic, at ease with the conventions of the discipline, and ready to tackle any area of research in electronic communications and computer engineering.
In the early stages of your project dissertation, your supervisor will read through and comment on your draft work. The project dissertation itself comprises a significant piece of your own research.
We also offer a Postgraduate Diploma Electronic Communications and Computer Engineering, which – unlike the MSc – does not have a dissertation requirement.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
