About This Course
This programme aims to provide a broad based Electronic Engineering MSc which will enable you to contribute to the future development of electronic products and services. The course reflects Bangor’s highly regarded research activity at the leading edge of electronic engineering. The MSc will provide relevant, up-to-date skills that enhance the engineering competency of its graduates and allows a broader knowledge of electronic engineering to be acquired by studying important emerging technologies, such as, optoelectronics, bioelectronics, polymer electronics and micromachining. The course is intended for graduates in a related discipline, who wish to enhance and specialise their skills in several emerging technologies.
The school has close links with local and national technology companies, with potential for work placements, research and development opportunities and collaborative projects.
This degree is aimed at candidates who have gained an Honours degree in Electronic Engineering, Physics or a related scientific discipline, at a 2.ii level or higher or the international equivalent. Applicants with initial degrees in other disciplines will be considered on an individual basis, with the assessment based on the applicant’s potential to succeed on, and benefit from, the course.
Applicants from overseas must in addition demonstrate competence in English to level IELTS 6.0 overall and no element under 5.5. An appropriate ELCOS (Bangor University English Language School) pre-sessional course may be taken to achieve the required English language level.
All graduates of this course will have skills and knowledge in the techniques and ideas of modern electronic systems, with a particular emphasis on the influence of nanotechnology on their design. You will also have developed scientific and engineering skills specific to your particular module choices, from the design of multi-million gate digital circuits to modelling communication systems and optoelectronic devices which are of immediate applicability in technical industries.
