Course Introduction

Our Masters in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is an advanced course designed for engineering graduates to enhance their skills in this area of high technology. The ever increasing pace of developments in all areas of electrical and electronic engineering, (and in particular in the systems that are related to energy and the environment), requires engineers with a thorough understanding of operation principles and design methods for various modern electrical and electronic systems. As a graduate you'll be able to not only respond to the latest changes but also to look ahead and help in shaping future developments. The unique features of this course are that the traditional electrical and electronic engineering subjects are supported by the more modern topics of computer control and machine learning techniques, which are at the forefront of modern electrical and electronic systems in the industry today. This course offers an integrated systems approach to engineering, incorporating modules in advanced power electronics and renewable energy systems, advanced instrumentation and control with signal processing, real-time systems and machine learning techniques. There is an increasing demand for skilled engineers who are able to design and maintain electrical and electronic systems that are at the forefront of current technologies. These positions cover many industries, hence graduates from this course can expect significantly enhanced job prospects in electrical, electronic as well as systems engineering. The acquired skills in computer control and AI techniques offer additional scope for jobs in the design of decision support systems that cross traditional boundaries between engineering and other disciplines. (i.e. medical, finance). Successful graduates will enjoy exciting career opportunities from a wide range of industries, such as electrical energy supply and control, electronics and instrumentation products and services, intelligent systems and automation to include: automotive, aerospace, electrical and electronic consumer products, telecommunications. The students can also pursue PhD studies after completing the course.
