Entry Requirements

  • We normally require an honours degree of 2.2 or above in Electrical and/or Electronic Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Robotics, or in Physics with a significant amount of electronics content, or similar.
  • We can consider applicants who do not meet the normal entry requirement, but who do have relevant professional experience or qualifications. In your application, you should describe in detail your professional experience and qualifications.


The full Master's course comprises 180 credits divided into three 60 credits stages: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and Master's. Students work incrementally through the three stages and must pass all modules at each stage in order to progress to the next.

This course is designed to reflect current state-of-the-art trends in industry and research, and presents a clear path to employment and further study. The group project will enhance your ability to work in small groups, while the dissertation will increase your autonomy and improve critical thinking.

You'll expand your knowledge of digital systems, embedded systems, power systems, communication engineering, computing and control. You'll also learn how to interpret user requirements and component specifications, to produce functionally and cost-effective designs through a combination of group and individual activities. The core modules you will study include:

  • Embedded Real-time Control Systems - The module details high performance digital signal processing controllers and how to use it in real time embedded applications. It includes topics such as the architecture of a high performance digital signal processor controller (DSC).
  • Safety Critical Embedded Systems - This module is designed to complement the modules on DSP for Real Time Control Systems VHDL and wireless sensor networks.
  • Wireless and Mobile Communications - Provides a broad knowledge of Mobile and Wireless Communication Systems, and the design concepts, operations and managements of these systems.
  • Advanced Control and Dynamics - Covers different aspects of control, including enhanced classical control system analysis and design, and advanced control concepts, and modelling.
  • System Design using HDLs - Considers the use of Hardware Description Languages in the design and verification of digital systems including "system on chip". You'll be introduced to a number of approaches to design and implementation including Data path-Controller models, state-machines and model-based design.
  • Wireless Sensor Networks - Basic definitions and applications of WSN, and how low-power operating systems, network deployment, data collection and Ad-Hoc multi-hop networks work. The practical aspect consists of a series of weekly laboratory sessions.
  • Group Project Challenge - You construct your own syllabus to carry out your project. Involves introduction to research, research objectives and project management entirely through workshops.
  • Dissertation - This significant piece of work accounts for a third of the MSc module credits. You can complete the dissertation with or without work placement. This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable work experience to enrich your CV.
