Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

The programme is suitable for outstanding students who have an interest in advanced research-based study in one of our research specialisms: Antenna and Electromagnetics; Centre for Digital Music (C4DM); Multimedia and Vision (MMV); Networks. On this programme you will use theoretical and experimental research techniques to explore and create innovative state-of-the-art technologies, enabling you to transfer your knowledge for practical application in the future. You will join one of our research groups, taking four selected taught modules and completing an extended research project. You will have the opportunity to develop further research and technical skills and to be able to demonstrate a level of independence that is greater than developed on a purely taught programme. This programme will: Give you access to our state-of-the art research and laboratory facilities including a listening room; antenna measurement laboratory; augmented human interaction laboratory; and interdisciplinary informatics hub; Support you in producing an extended individual research project that is of a suitable quality to be published in a peer-reviewed journal; Serve as a pathway to a PhD, providing the necessary training to prepare for a career in research and development.

You will play an active part in your acquisition of skills and knowledge. Teaching is by a mixture of formal lectures and small group seminars. The seminars are designed to generate informed discussion around set topics, and may involve student presentations, group exercise and role-play as well as open discussion. We take pride in the close and friendly working relationship we have with our students. You are assigned an Academic Adviser who will guide you in both academic and pastoral matters throughout your time at Queen Mary. Teaching for all modules includes a combination of lectures, seminars and a virtual learning environment. Each module provides 36 hours of contact time, supported by lab work and directed further study. Modules are assessed through a combination of coursework and written examinations.
