University of Chester

Electronic and Electrical Engineering MSc

This degree will equip students to have skills in both hardware/software and to be able to tackle Electronic devices, Power Electronics systems, Internet of Things, Sensors and Control, Robotics, Cybersecurity and AI Machine Learning.

The rapid pace of technological change requires a broad educational background, to be able to design, control and maintain smart electronic devices and IoT systems. This degree combines the core elements of Electronic Engineering where hardware inhabits such as sensors, embedded systems and robotics, with AI and cybersecurity, allowing the students to pull together hardware and software aspects needed to understand modern technology.

Why study this course with us?

Smart devices have considerable influence on how we live our lives, from the pervasive mobile phone to the emerging driverless vehicles. Intelligent Systems are enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm, a key ingredient of this MSc, with multiple sensors feeding data over networks, to be processed on the cloud.

Electronic and Electrical Engineering graduates are in high demand, and we are committed to helping you meet the challenge of gaining job-oriented skills by teaching simultaneously the underpinning theory and practical engineering applications.

Our strong local links with industry will provide you with substantial opportunities for practical work experience. The team of Electronic and Electrical Engineering has rich research experience and collaborations with industries and many of our Master students had their research projects with the companies such as: Glen Dimplex, URENCO, BRE, Arup North West, Advanced Control, Spiro Control, Passion for Life Healthcare, GHD Environment, Arvia and RFIDdirect.

We have modern labs of embedded systems, control engineering, power electronics, electromagnetics, cybersecurity and robotics where students are exposed to industrially relevant software and hardware, making them ready for employment.
