Electrical Engineering MSc-overview

This MSc in Electrical Engineering provides scope to study a range of topics from the Electrical Engineering field. These include power networks, electrical machines, drives and motor control, energy conversion, power electronic converters and their design and modern control methods.

Also available are more application focussed modules covering topics such as power systems for transportation and renewable energy.

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.

If you are interested in a two year electrical engineering programme you may want to consider the Sustainable Transportation and Electrical Power Systems (Erasmus Mundus) MSc.

Key facts

  • Students will gain experience of the type of problems encountered by academic and industrial researchers.
  • This course is suitable for graduates of related disciplines who wish to convert to electrical engineering.
  • This course is accredited by the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) to meet the further learning requirements of a Chartered Engineer.

    course details

    This course is taught on a full-time basis over 12 months and consists of 120 credits of taught modules and a 60 Credit independent research project.

    Students will take optional modules from across the range of electrical engineering topics. Planning and preparation for the project is undertaken during the spring semester.

    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.

    You will be taught using up to date practice, including the use of appropriate electronic resources. Teaching is a mix of lectures, workshops, lab work, tutorials and projects, with assessment usually performed through formal examinations and coursework.
