BRUNEL UNIVERSITY LONDON

Advanced Electronic and Electrical Engineering

MSc  |  Placement Year:   No

Having an advanced, broad level of engineering knowledge and skills is a prerequisite for improving your career options in a demanding and dynamic sector.

The course allows graduates with an electronic and electrical engineering background to further develop their skills as well as allowing able students from other numerate degree backgrounds to build up strong expertise in this area to complement their original undergraduate studies.

On the MSC programme you will:

  • Gain the in-depth knowledge you need to resolve new, complex and unusual challenges across a range of electrical and electronics issues.
  • Develop imagination, initiative and creativity to allow you to problem solve effectively.
  • Become work ready for a career with leading engineering organisations.

Key Modules
  • The Electronic and Computer Engineering discipline is one of the largest in the University, with a portfolio of research contracts totalling £7.5 million, and has strong links with industry.
    We have a wide range of research groups, each with a complement of academics and research staff and students. The groups are:
  • Media Communications
    Wireless Networks and Communications
    Brunel Institute for Power Systems
    Electronic Systems
    Sensors and Instrumentation
  • Our laboratories are well equipped with an excellent range of facilities to support the research work and courses. We have comprehensive computing resources in addition to those offered centrally by the University. The discipline is particularly fortunate in having extensive gifts of software and hardware to enable it to undertake far-reaching design projects.
    This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
