The MSc (by Research) RF Microelectronic Design is project based and studied full-time over one academic year. The course aims to prepare students for a leading career in research by providing them with the education and skills necessary to undertake an RF Microelectronic Design. Students will gain a solid understanding of the scientific foundations and appreciation of up-to-date technological achievements in their chosen field. Students will develop project management skills in relation to the scientific and technological aspects of their chosen subject including design, data collection and analysis, report writing along with critical and decision making skills. Students will increase their awareness of contemporary challenges in their chosen area and be able to communicate effectively, discussing both present and futuristic solutions to both specialist and non-specialist audiences. The MSc (by Research) RF Microelectronic Design course is project based, studied over one academic year. A design project worth between 130-160 credits is undertaken throughout a full academic year. In addition students gain essential knowledge and skills to their design projects by studying relevant taught modules. You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources, as well as small-group and individual tuition. Particular features of the programme include: one-to-one tuition with expert members of staff teaching informed by active leading-edge researchers in the field innovative and engaging teaching methods access to many online resources flexibility in course content All postgraduate students in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering join a lively and thriving postgraduate community.

RF Microelectronics with project
The Project is a major piece of advanced independent research, which you complete throughout the year under the supervision of a specialist in your chosen area. We will provide you with advice and guidance while you select and refine your area of study, and offer close supervision and support as you complete your research and your MSc.
Most taught modules are assessed by examination and/or written work.
Tutors provide feedback on assignments. Our objective is to help you develop the confidence to work as a professional researcher, at ease with the conventions of the discipline, and ready to tackle your chosen area of research.
In the early stages of your project dissertation, your supervisor will read through and comment on your draft work. The project dissertation itself comprises a significant piece of your own research
