Program description

Electronic Engineering with Professional Postgraduate Year MSc

Surrey has an international reputation in forward-thinking areas such as nanotechnology, space engineering, future 5G communications and artificial intelligence. This course offers all the benefits of our standard MSc in Electronic Engineering but with an additional year to enhance your capability by undertaking professional postgraduate level research and development. 

The course mirrors the two-year masters course that’s common elsewhere in Europe and in the USA and aims to develop your professional skills for industry. It also gives high-performing students the opportunity to find a professional placement or internship, enabling you to boost your CV with industrial work experience in addition to your professional postgraduate year.

What you will study

This two-year MSc in programme in Electronic Engineering is a great choice if you are interested in gaining further qualifications in advanced technology and related techniques. It enables you to choose from a wide range of stimulating modules offered by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

Our course includes an enhanced project where you may have the opportunity to develop publishable or patentable work, as well as training in transferable skills including business awareness and management. 

The course will also teach you advanced technical content in the specialised areas of electronic engineering, and your learning will be closely aligned with internationally recognised research conducted in the department.

International opportunities

Our course offers you the chance to gain valuable international experience by conducting research abroad at a European location during the second year. This would involve you spending two semesters at an Erasmus partner institution as you carry out work for your extended dissertation.

Admission requirements

A minimum of a 2:2 UK honours degree in either Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electronic and Computer Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or Telecommunication Engineering, or a recognised equivalent international qualification. We'll also consider relevant work experience if you don't meet these requirements.

English language requirements:

IELTS Academic: 6.5 overall with 6.0 in Writing and 5.5 in each other element.

Program content

Our MSc Electronic Engineering with a Professional Postgraduate Year is a two year course. In the first year, you’ll study eight technical modules. In the second year, you’ll complete an extended project, potentially leading to substantial research contributions, along with two modules on engineering and professional studies to enhance your professional skills. 

If you perform well in the first year and are successful in finding a placement, you’ll complete your placement from the end of your first year in the summer vacation period, normally lasting between three and six months. This means that if you do a placement you’ll start your extended project in Semester 2 and not Semester 1, and complete it later at the end of the summer period in your second year.

Tuition fees

  • The price for UK/EU fees is 6,200 GBP.
