  • Entry requirements
    Entry Requirements A degree in engineering (Honours degree for MSc applicants), in the numerate areas of science or a qualification which is considered to be equivalent. Candidates with other acceptable qualifications and relevant industrial experience may be considered. Candidates whose first language is not English and who have not obtained their qualifications in an English-speaking institution must achieve the following English language standards: TOEFL 250 (600) or IELTS 6.5. The course is supported by the Students Awards Agency for Sco
  • Academic Title
    MSc/PgDip/PgCert Control Engineering with Business
  • Course description
    This course encompasses the main elements of Control Engineering with Business and integrates theory with laboratory practice. It trains graduates to a significantly more advanced level than is currently available from most engineering undergraduate Control courses.

    The course is credit-based with each module taken being worth 12 credits. The MSc requires 120 credits at 50% pass mark and a successful completion of a summer project worth 60 credits; the Postgraduate Diploma requires 120 credits at 50% pass mark. Students who fail to attain this standard are awarded a Postgraduate Certificate. Postgraduate Diploma students who obtain 120 credits during the first and second terms are automatically transferred to a summer project and the MSc course (provided they so wish).

    The course is divided into three terms. The first two terms are devoted to full-time theoretical studies and supervised practical work. The third term is attended by MSc candidates only and is spent conducting a project and producing a dissertation.

    In the first term, there are five modules (each module equals 12 credits): Instrumentation and Condition Monitoring; Fundamental Control Technology; Control Assignment I; Computer Technology and Modern Programming Concepts; Regulations in Networks Industries.

    In the second term, students take five compulsory modules (each module equals 12 credits): Computer Control System Methods; Control of Industrial Processes; Personal Assignment; Simulation and design Software for Digital Signal Processing and Control; Technology and Market Interaction.

    In the third term, MSc candidates conduct a project to highlight the practical/research aspect of their chosen specialisation. Depending on the nature of the project, practical work may be carried out at the University or at a participating university in an EU country, or at a participating industrial establishment. Work is carried out full-time under the supervision of a member of staff or, in industry, under the joint supervision of an academic and an industrial supervisor. At the end of the project, students submit two copies of his/her dissertation and make a presentation to a panel of assessors. Progress is by accumulation of credits, obtained by passing examinations and submission of satisfactory practical work and reports where applicable.
    Course Length

    MSc: 12 months full-time
    PgDip: 9 months full-time

    General Course Details

    This is a one-year full-time course, organised by the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and leading to the MSc degree, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate in Communications, Control and Digital Signal Processing.

    The course is credit-based. Students accumulate credits as they progress through the course. For the award of MSc a summer  project must also be completed. Students who fail to attain an MSc are considered for a Postgraduate Diploma or a Postgraduate Certificate. The possibility of attending individual modules also exists for candidates who may not want to obtain a degree but who wish to update/upgrade their knowledge in a particular area covered by the course.

    The course lectures are delivered over two semesters (each semester spans 12 calendar weeks). At the beginning of the course, candidates may register for either the Postgraduate Diploma or the MSc. The first two semesters are devoted to full-time theoretical studies and supervised practical work. The session over the summer is attended by MSc candidates only and is spent on a project and producing a dissertation.

    Credits:  Students accumulate credits as they progress through the course, each module taken being worth 12 credits. A minimum of 120 credits with a pass mark of 50%  plus a successful summer project completion worth 60 credits giving a total of 180 credits,  are required for award of the MSc.  A minimum of 120 credits are needed for award of the PG Diploma (pass mark 50%). Students who fail to obtain this minimum requirement are awarded a PG Certificate for which 60 credits are required.

    Summer Project

    The summer project is only carried out by the students who have successfully accumulated a minimum of 120 credits at 50% passing mark during the taught part of the course and have hence progressed to the dissertation stage of this course.

    Candidates will conduct a project to highlight the practical/research aspect of their chosen specialization. Depending on the nature of the project, the practical work may be carried out at the University, at a participating university in an EC Country, or at a participating industrial establishment. The project work is carried out full-time under the supervision of a member of staff or in industry, under the joint supervision of an academic and an industrial supervisor.

    At the end of the project each student must submit two copies of his/her dissertation and make a presentation to a panel of assessors. The dissertation carries 80% of the total marks and the presentation 20%.
