MSc FT Electronic and Electrical Engineering with Industrial Experience

H607 MSC 2 Years

Overview

This new conversion masters programme builds on the strengths of the Queen Mary University School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. These strengths include world-leading research in: networks, antenna design and electromagnetics, computer vision and computer theory. This conversion masters programme features a common first semester of: analogue electronics, digital systems design (incorporating an on-line pre-sessional module in digital circuit design), control systems, embedded systems (incorporating C programming). In the second semester the electronic engineering stream features choices from: advanced control systems, critical systems, integrated circuit design, real-time DSP, while the electrical engineering stream features choices from: bioelectricity, microwave and millimeterwave communication systems, power electronics, and electrical power engineering. Both streams have a Project / industrial project during the 3rd (summer) semester.

Industrial Experience

The industrial placement currently takes place towards the end of the first year for a maximum of 12 months.  It is the student’s responsibility to secure their placement, the school will offer guidance and support in finding and securing the placement but the onus is on the student to arrange it. 

 Currently if you are not able to secure a placement by the end of your second semester we will transfer you onto the 1 year FT taught programme without the Industrial Experience, this change would also be applied to any visa if you were here on a student visa.

 The industrial placement consists of 8-12 months spent working with an appropriate employer in a role that relates directly to your field of study. The placement is currently undertaken between the taught component and the project. This will provide you with the opportunity to apply the key technical knowledge and skills that you have learnt in your taught modules, and will enable you to gain a better understanding of your own abilities, aptitudes, attitudes and employment potential. The module is only open to students enrolled on a programme of study with integrated placement.

If you do not secure a placement you will be transferred onto the 1 year FT programme.
