The MSc Electronic Engineering is a portfolio masters degree, enabling you to further your knowledge of a number of areas, such as micro and nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, micro and nanotechnology, and wireless communications. This programme offers a wider choice of modules than our specialist masters programmes, enabling you to tailor the degree to your interests. All modules cover state of the art techniques, technologies and supporting tools, and their application in solving complex problems to meet emerging economic and social needs. Additionally, you will work during the summer research project on a specialist topic.
Your programme leader and personal tutor will help you to make an appropriate selection of modules.
