Electronics is at the heart of a wide range of business and entertainment systems. The integration of computing and communications with interactive digital media is evident in many modern innovations that are creating a revolution in business and the life of individuals.
These systems are vital to the growth of the global economy; reducing costs, improving quality and providing ever more sophisticated services. All aspects of business, from research and development to production, marketing and sales, benefit from rapid advances in such technology. Our social lives, entertainment and education are also enhanced by continuing advances in personal electronic systems, media compression and seamless connectivity using communications systems.

This degree programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you will need to play a leading part in the future research, development and application of these technologies.
You have a wide possible range of module choices in this degree programme. The linkage between modules is minimised so that students are free to create a personalised study package. Thus topics from embedded systems, spoken language processing, image interpretation and 3D environments for virual reality and serious games, and some aspects of communications engineering can be combined in one degree programme..

In addition to the modules taken as part of a standard MSc programme, the with Industrial Studies programme includes an industrial placement module. This provides an opportunity for you to develop ideas for your individual project on a topic related to the interests of the host company. The placement takes place during the summer, following the sessional examinations. After the industrial placement you return to the University to begin an individual project

To qualify for this degree you must meet the standard requirements for an MSc, obtain and pass an industrial placement. To obtain a placement students must pass the January examinations at the first attempt and be selected by a company. Selection for a placement involves interviews with companies, which are arranged by the School from our extensive network of industrial contacts. The University will provide training in the preparation of a CV, and in interview technique but cannot guarantee a placement. Students who do not meet the requirements for a degree with industrial studies, including those who are unable to secure a placement, will revert to a standard degree programme.
