Course overview

The MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering is designed to provide instruction and training in the most recent developments in the areas of technology covering communications, electronics and computer engineering. It aims to provide you with advanced and comprehensive coverage of the specialist skills required by an engineer working in the computer hardware and software aspects of computer engineering, electronic instrumentation, electronic systems and telecommunications (both wireless and wired). The programme also provides an excellent basis for engineers wishing to update their knowledge or students who wish to go on to do research or enhance their training. It offers exciting opportunities for research, industrial collaboration and learning in the fast-growing field of communications and computer engineering.

Career prospects

Electrical and electronic engineering continue to be buoyant industries. The MSc Electronic, Communications and Computer Engineering offers excellent career opportunities with internet providers, mobile communications manufacturers, mobile communications operators, the optical communications industry and wired telecommunications companies. Some graduates enter the management and commerce sector, or software and IT, while others pursue PhD programmes or work in the academic field.

Course structure

The programme is operated on a modular basis where you will follow a series of taught modules (120 credits), followed by a research project (60 credits) undertaken during the summer period. You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources. If you have taken any of the modules as part of a BEng/ MEng degree course at the University of Nottingham, you are not allowed to take those modules for a second time.

Entry requirements

An upper second class honours degree (or international equivalent) in electrical and electronic engineering or a related discipline. Non-UK qualifications will be assessed against this standard.

Applicants must have graduated from an approved university. Other equivalent qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Entry requirements in the prospectus and website may not always apply and individual offers may vary.
