Electronic Engineering (Euromasters)

The Electronic Engineering Euromasters programme is designed for electronic engineering graduates and professionals with an interest in gaining further qualifications in advanced, cutting-edge techniques and technologies. Current pathways offered include:

  • Communications Networks and Software
  • RF and Microwave Engineering
  • Mobile Communications Systems
  • Mobile and Satellite Communications
  • Mobile Media Communications
  • Computer Vision, Robotics and Machine Learning
  • Satellite Communications Engineering
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Space Engineering
  • Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy
  • Medical Imaging

Please note that at applicant stage, it is necessary to apply for the Electronic Engineering (Euromasters). If you wish to specialise in one of the other pathways mentioned above, you can adjust your Euromaster programme accordingly on starting the course.

This degree mirrors the two-year Masters programme structure that is common in the USA, and is an ideal stepping stone to a PhD or a career in industry.

The optional professional placement component gives you the opportunity to gain experience from working in industry, which cannot normally be offered by the standard technically-focused one-year Masters programme.

Entry requirements

An honours degree in mathematics, computing, physical sciences or engineering disciplines is required. Our minimum entry level is a 2.2 from a UK university or overseas equivalent. Relevant industrial experience will also be considered.

English language requirements

IELTS 6.5 overall, 6.0 in each component (or equivalent)

We offer intensive English language pre-sessional courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies here.

Course modules

This programme is studied full-time over 24 months. It consists of eight taught modules, two modules based on experimental reflective learning and an extended project.
