Course Description

Electrical and electronic engineers play a key role in the design, implementation and management of electrical systems to solve practical problems, such as systems for automation, surveillance, energy conversion, power distribution, telecommunications and information processing.

You will develop technical skills through fundamental theory and practical laboratory work, learning from leading experts, who are working on a range of ground breaking projects from developing bionic implants and creating models and devices to better understand and treat diseases, to creating energy efficient telecommunication systems and deploying sensor networks to monitor and manage the environment. You will have the opportunity to take part in a research project in electronic and photonic system design, telecommunications, power networks, signal processing and automatic control systems.

The Master of Engineering (Electrical) will lead to a formal qualification in electrical engineering.
