Additional Costs

Specialist Costs

Compulsory Estimate: £50

Optional Estimate: £800

How are these costs calculated?

Students often choose to buy a laptop or tablet for use on campus (approx. £800), however there are PCs on campus and students can also borrow laptops. Students may need a smart phone or wireless device to participate in interactive class quizzes, etc. All personal protection equipment (PPE) for labs and a basic toolkit is provided by the School. Laboratory and workshop consumables are also provided. All reports, etc. for assessment are submitted as electronic files except the Level 6 7 Project Report for which printing and binding costs (up to 50 pages) will be borne by the students. Costs of all materials for prototype building and the printing of posters for Employability events and graduate year books will be paid by the School.

Placement Costs

How are these costs calculated?

Students may have to contribute to the cost of optional social trips organised by Student Societies. The costs of compulsory industrial visits (if any) are paid by the School or by sponsorship secured from the Professional bodies (PSRBs). Students are expected to cover the costs of attending placement interviews and any additional travel/accommodation costs incurred to take up optional short term or sandwich placements.

Professional Costs

How are these costs calculated?

The School of Engineering will cover the costs associated with student/affiliate membership of one PSRB. Students will be expected to contribute to the cost of any additional memberships or enhanced PSRB membership status and to the cost of any optional professional accreditation courses in the use of software packages, etc.

Other Costs

How are these costs calculated?

Costs for student-led projects will be paid subject to approved business cases submitted by the students under the supervision of academic staff. Artefacts built for projects normally remain the property of the School, but students may be offered the opportunity to purchase them for the cost of the materials used.

Department

School of Engineering

This course covers the key components needed to design and implement modern electronic systems; the use of modern embedded systems for single chip solutions and higher power electronics; and links to renewable energy systems, fuel cells and hybrid vehicles.

You will study the application of electronic systems and examine possible future uses. The course will improve your skills in the integration and control of electronic systems and link to image processing, the study of which is delivered by our world-leading imaging group. A project completes the MSc, allowing you to specialise in your chosen area of interest.

This course starts in September 2017 and January 2018. Please note that January starters will have a course duration of approximately 15 months.

Non means-tested loans of up to a maximum of £10,000 will be available to postgraduate master's students - click here to find out more information

Placement options

You will carry out a research project which can be academic or industry-based.

Career options after the course

The broad field of skills in electronic engineering will allow graduates to embark on a career in electronics systems engineering, design and development in electronic engineering and electronic power engineering. Power electronics are at the heart of the global energy problem.

Employers in nuclear power, renewable energy and transport need electronic engineering graduates who can implement efficient electronic power conversion systems. Electronic engineering graduates are also sought after to work in companies where the latest FPGA technologies are used to further minimise electronic components.

You will also be well placed to pursue a placement with partners or further study such as a PhD or an Engineering Doctorate.

Careers support is available from the moment you join us, throughout your time here, and for up to three years after the completion of your course. We have a range of services available through the School of Engineering and the University Careers Service including dedicated careers and employability advisors.
