Course summary

About us

The innovative and exciting new Department of Electronic Engineering links excellent engineering with the ingenious application of creativity as the starting point for invention. We offer opportunities for cutting-edge research in fields including Microwave Photonics and Sensors, Nanotechnology, Voice, Music and Biosignal technologies, and Power systems.

The Department offers a range of postgraduate study opportunities around current and emerging electronic engineering trends.

Research facilities and environment

As Royal Holloway’s newest department, we have designed a brand new building right in the heart of campus, with ample space to grow teaching and research around our strengths, using state of the art commercial software, experimental and laboratories equipment.

Our research groups provide a lively and interactive environment for postgraduates and academic staff. Research group members, and other researchers across other departments and industry, meet frequently and hold research seminars or invite internal and external speakers to present to our students. These groups also serve as a useful forum for discussing current research activities, formulating ideas, sharing resources, discussing journal articles and problem solving. Students are expected to become active members of their relevant research group and to participate in wider Departmental events such as seminars and colloquia.

Students discuss their research skills training needs with their supervisor soon after they start their degree. The College's Researcher Development Programme offers a series of transferable skills courses designed for research students to help them to develop their skills alongside their research.

Assessment

Must be something within the PhD that can be deemed as novel. Demonstrated by reviewing the research literature during the first 9 months to establish a specific area of interest where there is scope for moving knowledge forward. Some way of exploring that area is formally established, usually through experimentation. Writing of the thesis usually starts during the last 3-6 months of year three.

There is no expectation of ‘novelty’ for the MPhil. This degree is based around excellent research that furthers knowledge. Demonstrated by reviewing the research literature mainly during the first 6 months to establish a specific area of interest where there is scope for moving knowledge forward. Then some way of exploring that area formally is established, usually through experimentation. Writing of the thesis generally starts during the last 3-6 months of year two.

MSc by Research. A topic that fits well within one of the Department’s research groups. No formal taught modules, this degree is assessed on the research work itself. Regular supervisions underpin research with opportunities to present progress on research at internal Research Seminars.

Your future career

Students graduating from these research programmes will have great opportunities to work in world leading engineering sectors such as Electronics, Photonics, Telecoms, Music Technology, Nanotechnology, Computer Systems Engineering, Biomedicine etc. Our Department will provide a range of expert support and information to our research graduates to acquire a head start in the graduate job market.
