Electronic and Electrical Engineering

The course is intended to offer a route to an MSc to those prospective students who do not wish to specialise in a particular area within the discipline at this stage, either because they are uncertain of which area they would like to focus on, or because they wish to show a broad profile to as wide a range of potential employers of professional electronic and electrical engineers as possible. Accordingly, the course is specifically designed for students who wish to pursue advanced studies across the range of specialist areas relevant to electronic and electrical engineering.
