Electronic and Automotive Engineering with Placement MSc

This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering an additional 6 month placement opportunity, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.

A vast increase in automotive electronic systems has created an array of new engineering opportunities and challenges. Electronic systems now form a key aspect of modern vehicles and this course is designed to address some of the challenges this presents in engineering. The course includes the principle aspects of electronic engineering and will give you an appreciation of the issues encompassing the move to lower emission road transportation. In addition, it will provide an understanding of the technical and economic aspects of modern vehicles.

We will aim to address the master's level educational and training needs of research, design and development for engineers working in the area of electronic and automotive systems. We will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • develop your technical knowledge and design skills
  • develop management knowledge and skills appropriate to technical management
  • develop and enhance your ability to undertake a major design project

This course will aim to provide you with the skills to meet the needs of the wide range of industries that use technology and are not limited to the area of this course specialism. Graduates are not only expected to become professional engineers in this specialism but will also have the skills to research, design, develop and manage in other professions.

Entry Requirements

Entry for this course is usually:

  • An Honours degree (2:1 or above) in Electronic Engineering or a related discipline or an equivalent professional qualification.
  • You are also encouraged to apply if you have other qualifications and/or experience and can demonstrate that you are equipped with knowledge and skills equivalent to Honours degree level.

If your first language is not English, you will need to meet the minimum requirements of an English Language qualification. The minimum of IELTS 7.0 overall with no element lower than 6.5, or equivalent will be considered acceptable
