Postgraduate Module Selection 2023/24
Our taught MEng in Electronic & Computer Engineering (MECE) programme is highly flexible, allowing participants to customise their programme based on preferred specialisation areas and to choose from an offering of a wide range of modules. Students may tailor their selection of modules to best align with, or to expand, their existing skill set. To meet the overall Masters programme requirements, complete eight taught modules (of which four or more must be Level 9 modules) plus a Masters project.
Choose between the General Masters, with maximum flexibility of module choice, or six Majors options in specialised areas. To meet the requirements for a Major, complete the four core major modules listed below, plus any four other 7.5 credit taught modules, plus the specific Major Project. Recommended options for each major are listed below, however, students are free to tailor their optional module choices. The General Masters Project is taken if choosing the Masters without a Major option.
Qualifier students choose from the same set of modules, but do not take a project module until they have transferred onto the MEng programme.
