If you like the idea of creating electrical systems which could help millions of people on a day-to-day basis, then then studying an MSc in electrical and electronic engineering could be for you.
Electrical and electronic engineers are crucial to the development of power systems and devices, electrical machines, alternative energy and smart grids, digital communication systems, computer networking, Internet of Things (IoT) and household electronic devices world-wide, to name a few. Engineers capable of designing and implementing electrical and electronic systems and devices for such applications are in high demand all over the world.
This accredited course provides you with the opportunity to develop practical skills and theoretical knowledge in a range of electronics fields, including digital systems, image and signal processing, robotics and sensors, together with electrical systems such as renewable energy, smart grids, advanced control engineering and instrumentation, electrical machines and power generation.
Designed to follow the Engineering Council UK-SPEC standard, the course encompasses theoretical and practical subjects within the broad area of electrical and electronic engineering as used by industries as diverse as aerospace and automotive, chemical and construction.
You’ll have access to modern facilities, as well as an annual programme of lectures (subject to availability) which aim to inspire you in the areas of contemporary engineering and computing topics which are presented by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and British Computer Society (BCS) at no extra cost.
The course is designed for graduates with an electrical and/or electronic engineering background. It provides an advanced MSc degree education in electrical and electronic engineering.
The technical focus of the course concentrates on a combination of advanced electronics including Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) based system design, image and signal processing, digital communications, advanced control and instrumentation, and robotics as well as the subject specific knowledge in electrical systems including renewable energy, smart grids, electrical machines and power generation.
An emphasis on applied technical work will strengthen the engineering development skills of students from an academic background. Such work aims to provide you with the demonstrable expertise necessary to help secure professional level employment in related industries.
Coventry University’s accreditation with CMI is currently ongoing for the relevant modules and is regularly reviewed and monitored by the CMI through their quality systems. Whilst Coventry University anticipates that these reviews will continue to be successful, if they were to be unsuccessful, the relevant module in this course would no longer be accredited and we would notify applicants and students of this change as soon as possible.
Why choose this course?
At Coventry University, we believe that studying engineering should be so much more than just learning theory and passing examinations. Instead, our activity-led learning approach can enable you to develop your skills and knowledge by working on real-life problems and projects, many commissioned by our industry partners.
We aim to regularly update course content to reflect emerging trends and knowledge fields to enrich your technical and transferrable skills. For example, power electronics explores the modern day systems used for electrical power generation, such as smart meters, smart appliances, renewable energy resources and energy efficiency resources. Robotics is another key area, so we will examine the sub-systems that a robot needs, such as sensors to perceive its environment, cognition to make informed decisions, image processing to ‘see’ and detect objects in the real world and the mechanics to enable movement through 3D space.
You’ll study in our modern £50m Engineering and Computing building, with access to extensive facilities and the latest technologies in the fields of electrical and electronic engineering, such as a new machines and microprocessors laboratory.
Current extensive industry links with a broad range of commercial partners, including IBM, Invensys and Jaguar Land Rover to name just a few, enabling you to collaborate on industry themed research projects.
You’ll be taught by current experts in their field, many of whom are active researchers in areas that include but are not limited to control theory and applications, wireless sensors and pervasive computing, embedded micro-electronics and electrical energy. This should not only help s to inform your teaching, keeping you abreast of new developments and issues, but may also provides opportunities to partner staff on research projects.
Why Coventry University?
An award-winning university, we are committed to providing our students with the best possible experience. We continue to invest in both our facilities and our innovative approach to education. Our students benefit from industry-relevant teaching, and resources and support designed to help them succeed. These range from our modern library and computing facilities to dedicated careers advice and our impressive Students’ Union activities.
