MSc FT Advanced Electronic and Electrical Engineering with Industrial Experience

H60B MSC 2 Years


This new masters programme builds on the strengths of the Queen Mary University School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. These strengths include world-leading research in: networks, antenna design and electromagnetics, computer vision and computer theory. The programme emphasizes core electrical and electronic engineering knowledge and skills, which, upon completion, will enable the students to acquire the essential knowledge, skills, competency, and engineering awareness necessary for a successful career in electronics based industries.

The first semester offers a choice from: Fundamentals of DSP, a new module in Electronic Sensing, Control Systems, Embedded Systems, Power Electronics, Microwave & Millimetrewave Electronics. The second semester offers a choice from: Parallel Computing, Integrated Circuit Design, Electrical Machines and Systems, Real-Time and Critical Systems, Real-Time Digital Signal Processing, Advanced Control Systems, Microwave and Millimetrewave Communications Systems, Mobile Services, DENM600 Energy Storage Engineering, DENM601 Introduction to Solar Energy.

This masters programme is comprehensive and includes theory, lab-practice, simulation and project work, all of which are underpinned by over 125 years of experience in electrical engineering and electronics at Queen Mary. Our programme brings together our teaching, research and industrial contacts to allow the cohort to emphasize either electrical or electronic engineering, or combine the two as best suits their personal requirements.

Industrial Experience

The industrial placement takes place from the September following the taught part of the MSc and is for a maximum of 12 months. It is a student's responsibility to secure their own placement, but the EECS Placement Team will provide support. The Placement Team source and promote suitable opportunities, assist with applications, and with interview preparation.

The industrial placement consists of 8-12 months spent working with an appropriate employer in a role that relates directly to your field of study. The placement is currently undertaken after you have completed and passed the taught component of the degree and submitted your MSc project. The placement will provide you with the opportunity to apply the key technical knowledge and skills that you have learnt in your taught modules, and will enable you to gain a better understanding of your own abilities, aptitudes, attitudes and employment potential. The module is only open to students enrolled on a programme of study with integrated placement.

In the event that you are unable to secure a placement we will transfer you onto the 1 year FT taught programme without the Industrial Experience. This change will also apply to any student visa you hold at the time.
