Course summary

Course Overview

Develop and enhance your understanding of electronic engineering to an advanced level, setting you apart in your career. You will learn from world experts in areas that are crucial to the electronics sector over the next decade. Through our wide range of core and optional modules, you will also have the opportunity to tailor your learning experience towards specific industrial sectors including energy, the environment, automotive, wireless technologies and health.

A cutting-edge learning environment

The learning environment you will study within embraces expertise in electronics for wireless communications, flexible and printable electronics, solar cells, RF engineering for Particle accelerators, millimeter waves and terahertz technology. Exposure to these technologies will take you beyond current industrial practice to develop specialist knowledge and skills for emerging markets. As part of our general engineering ethos at Lancaster you will mix with multi-disciplinary engineering concepts from electronics, mechatronic and mechanical engineering, skills which are highly sought after by employers.

Project based learning

The project brings together multiple aspects of your studies and provides valuable real-world experience of working as a professional electronic engineer. As part of this project, you will structure and break down a problem; develop team organisation, project management and technical skills; and use background sources and research. You will also gain career experience by presenting your results and writing a customer report. Examples of previous projects include:

  • Self-repairable electronics through unification of self-test and calibration technology
  • Solution processed electronics over a large area: design and realisation of a fully computerised XY(Z) spray coater employing multiple pneumatic and/or ultrasonic airbrushes
  • Detection of living cells in a microfluidic system using electrochemical and RF technologies
  • Monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) design for wireless networks
  • Vision and robotic control interface system.

Assessment

Engineering is more than just theory and, as a result, you will experience labs/practical sessions, workshops and group tutorials, alongside lectures. This contact is with academic staff that are internationally recognised and work alongside global electronics companies.

Career

Our MSc in Electronic Engineering is designed to support your career ambitions and progression. By enabling you to develop your technical and professional skills to an advanced level, and allowing you to apply what you have previously learnt to real-world problems, this programme equips you with the knowledge and experience for a range of electronic engineering careers, and will put you ahead of the competition.

There is a wide range of sectors where electronic engineering is relevant, such as Aerospace, Energy, Environment, Health, IT and Telecommunications, and Security. Roles in these sectors come with highly competitive starting salaries, and include, but are not limited to:

  • Aerospace Engineer
  • Broadcast Engineer
  • Control and Instrumentation Engineer
  • Electronics Engineer
  • IT Consultant
  • Network Engineer
  • Nuclear Engineer

In addition, studying at Masters level will further enhance your prospects, opening up opportunities to progress further in your career.

Alternatively, our programme will provide you with the skills, knowledge, and experience to take up further study at PhD level and begin a career in research, exploring innovative, cutting-edge areas of the engineering discipline.
