Course Description

MEng in Electronic and Computer Engineering


This programme offers advanced-level courses in the theory, analysis, design, modelling and manufacture of electronic and computer systems. It’s highly flexible and allows participants to customise a taught Masters programme based on preferred focus areas. With a range of over twenty modules to choose from, this Masters programme is highly customisable by the individual student.

With our new pre-defined Majors, students have the option of specialising in one of four areas: Nanotechnology, Advanced Data Networks, Internet of Things (IoT), and Image Processing and Analysis.

There are two intakes on to the programme per academic year (February and September) and flexible study options are provided. An alternative entry path is provided for some students who do not meet the Master’s programme entry requirements. Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate exit awards are also available.

*Internet of Things (IOT). Please note, the school also offers a full time specialised MSc in Electronic and Computer Technology (IoT).  Find out more here.
