All MSc students in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering join a lively and thriving postgraduate community.
The MSc in Electronic and Ultrasonic Instrumentation is completed by full-time study over 12 months.
Compulsory Taught Modules of 90 credits
HDL for Programmable Logic with project, Advanced Signal Processing with project, Instrumentation and Measurement with project, Engineering Ultrasonics with project and Ultrasonic Measurement Techniques.
Students undertake a project which is a major piece of advanced independent research,
which you complete over the summer 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 devleop the confidence to work as a professional academic, at ease with the conventions of
the discipline, and ready to tackle any area of research in Electronic and Ultrasonic Instrumentation.
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.
