Course Information

In the world of industry, advances are achieved by teams. 

These teams have to be directed, organised and inspired by managers, who are often engineers of considerable talent and experience.

Teamwork and collaboration are essential when responding to design criteria, rigid timelines and unexpected issues. Those with excellent management skills will help to deliver the best solution within the timeframe. Engineers aim to anticipate and avoid problems that might arise in a wide range of industrial applications. 

Our MEng will cement your knowledge of fundamental principles and introduce you to advanced concepts. You'll experience a large team software engineering project, as well as managing a substantial individual project, allowing you to develop the knowledge and skills required to become a leader in the industry. With an increased choice of advanced option modules, you'll have the opportunity to engage with world-class researchers and work with our latest innovative technology.

If you're aspiring to have a leading role in the engineering industry, this course is for you.

Year 1

Year 1 provides you with a grounding in electronic principles, circuits, components and devices. There's a strong emphasis on mathematics and computing, including learning the C and Python programming languages. You'll also develop your practical skills, designing and building complete products as part of laboratories and group projects.

Core modules

Your modules will cover topics such as:

  • Engineering Design

  • Analogue Electronics and Physics

  • Mathematics

  • Digital Circuits

  • Introduction to Programming

  • Digital Systems

Year 2

In Year 2 you'll learn to analyse and design hardware and software systems. You'll study material including data structures, algorithms, electromagnetism and Java programming. An advanced construction project gives you the opportunity to apply your skills of design, engineering, problem-solving and project-management.

Core modules

Your modules will cover topics such as:

  • Design, Construction and Test

  • Java Programming

  • Engineering Mathematics, Signals and Systems

  • Noise, Waves and Fields

  • Semiconductor Devices and Circuits

  • Algorithms and Numerical Methods

  • Digital Design with HDL

Year 3

In Year 3 you'll study a range of advanced core and option modules. You can focus on your interests, or investigate a new aspect of electronic engineering. Throughout the year you'll work on a major project, using the knowledge and skills you've developed to research and design a solution to an engineering challenge.

Core modules

Your core modules will cover topics such as:

  • Control

  • Communication Systems

  • Principles of DSP

  • Accounting and Finance

  • Management and Marketing of Technology

  • Law for Engineering Management

The Software Engineering Project  will provide you with a real-life application of your skills, within the context of a small business environment. You'll develop a large piece of software engineering as a group, and will work through design, implementation and testing methods for the project. Each of your team will manage a major role within the company, such as programming, finance, marketing, testing, as well as doing the actual programming.

You'll work creatively and develop collaborative and project management skills, using integrated development environments, cloud-based version control tools and industry-standard cloud-based collaboration tools. You'll also communicate technical concepts and present your work in a live tender presentation to ‘sell’ your work and convince the financial backers, as well as a final presentation.

Recent applications have included:

  • interactive climbing guide

  • integrated cooking tutor

  • media-rich estate agent

  • virtual lecture-note taking

  • online bike maintenance

Many of the projects on offer are closely aligned to our current research, giving you the chance to work alongside world-class academics at the forefront of the field.

Option modules

Option modules may include:

  • Analogue Engineering

  • State Space and Digital Control

  • LAN and Internet Protocols

  • Mobile Communication Systems

  • Cloud and Distributed Computer Systems

  • Digital Engineering

  • Nanoelectronics

  • Photonics and Nanophotonics

Year 4

Individual project

In your final year you'll complete your MEng Individual Project.

You'll work individually on a major project which will develop your capacity to think independently and creatively about a specific area of electronic engineering. You'll develop advanced skills in problem-solving, critical evaluation and writing concise technical reports. You'll also be able to present and defend your work. Projects from previous years have included:

  • It’s a boat! It’s a plane! It’s a hovercraft!

  • the automated detection of high-stake deception via speech analysis using machine learning

  • automatic building mapping drone

  • from awareness to advocacy: a study of modern marketing strategies in the music technology industry

  • adding Voice Control and Audible Feedback to Electronic Lab Test Equipment for Visually or Physically Impaired Users

Option modules

Option modules may include:

  • Ideation

  • Strategic Management

  • Skills for Business Leadership

  • Advanced Control

  • Electronics for Medicine 

  • Robotics
