Fees

Requirements

General Entry Requirements

The normal entry requirement is a minimum H2.1 in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, or a cognate discipline, though exceptions may be made for those with significant relevant work experience. The equivalence across international qualifications is made with the NARIC system.

An applicant for this programme who is not an Electronic Engineering graduate would need a reasonable knowledge to Honours Bachelor standard of Electronics/Circuit theory, Electromagnetics, Analogue & Digital Signal theory, the Laplace, Fourier and Z-transforms, Systems theory, Control theory, and Object oriented programming using either Java or C++. These are all areas that would be well-known by an EE grad. It isn’t necessarily the case that an applicant would have to have taken modules in these, but an applicant would have to demonstrate to our satisfaction that they are knowledgeable enough to take the relevant modules for which these are effective pre-requisites. We will look at each such case individually, so such an applicant should include in their application sufficient information and evidence to allow this decision to be clearly and appropriately made.
