Course summary

The MSc by Research is a one year full-time programme (two years part-time) based on a research project which may be in any area of staff expertise. As a member of one of the Department’s research groups you will be supervised on a one-to-one basis by a member of academic staff. Progress of all research students is continually guided by a supervisor and a thesis advisory panel. The award of the degree is made following the submission and successful examination of a thesis (which is usually around 15,000 to 20,000 words).

MSc by Research students are also encouraged to take advanced taught courses in Electronic Engineering to help fill any gaps in the background knowledge required for the research project. The choice of courses taken will be made together with the supervisor, at the beginning of the programme.

Assessment

An MSc by Research is assessed only based on a final written thesis, which must be written to a standard comparable to leading research in the chosen field. You can attend some taught MSc lectures to gain background knowledge, but these will not form part of your assessment.

Careers and Graduate Destinations:

Being a research student in the department isn't just about producing a piece of academic work. It's also about developing skills that will help you succeed in your chosen career whether you choose to stay in academia or move into industry.
