Comments about Magnetics (MSc) - At the institution - Cardiff - Cardiff - Cardiff - Wales

  • Objectives
    The MSc in Magnetics offers advanced education in magnetic engineering, leading to a specialised qualification that is unique within the United Kingdom and probably within Europe. The programme has been developed in response to a demand for highly-trained postgraduates in the strategically important field of Magnetics, which is vital to a number of industrial sectors ranging from the power industry to the transportation and data storage industries.

    The education and training delivered by the MSc in Magnetics will provide graduates of the programem with a career route into industry or academia. Successful students will also be encouraged to apply for the School's PhD programme. In keeping with Cardiff University’s practice of providing research-led teaching, the course content will be directly relevant to the research interests of the new Institute for Advanced Materials and Energy Systems, and to the research activities of the Wolfson Centre for Magnetics.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry Requirements:

    The course is suitable for graduates in electrical and electronic engineering, physics, materials science, metallurgy, ceramics, computer science or in another relevant science or engineering discipline; or for those with appropriate professional experience. Applicants without an engineering or applied science background should bear in mind that there are significant numerical/computational elements to this MSc programme.

    Applicants should have, or expect to obtain, at least an upper second class Honours degree (or equivalent) from a British or recognised overseas university. Applicants with relevant professional experience will be considered on an individual basis.

    Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to pass either IELTS or TEOFL examinations with a minimum score of IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 600 (250 for computer based test).
