Masters in Electrical Engineering

With our increasing reliance on technology in everyday lives, there is also a heightened demand for those who understand the complex workings of such technology. As an electrical engineer, you will have the chance to be at the forefront of advancements in future decades. You could potentially help to shape the progressions in technology and machinery.

About Electrical Engineering


The accreditation of your degree will depend on where you choose to study. It will also be influenced by your level of study. At postgraduate level, you can expect to be awarded a Master of Science (MSc), a Master of Engineering (MEng), or a Master of Research (MRes). Further study will award research degrees such as Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).


A postgraduate degree will normally take one to two years to complete.


Postgraduate course annual tuition fees are set by the institution, which means that they can differ. Postgraduate programmes are generally less expensive than undergraduate programmes. You will find detailed fee information on the institution webpage.

Typical Annual Tuition Fees

  • Postgraduate - £9,500

Topics Covered


During a postgraduate degree, such as an MEng or MSc, you will build on the skills and knowledge you developed at undergraduate level. The modules you study will cover the more complex and specialist areas of electrical engineering. You will gain an understanding of both the traditional and contemporary concepts of the subject area. Modules and specialisms might include instrumentation and measurement, advanced power electricals, renewable energy, sensing systems, and signal processing. Assessment methods could include written work, electrical projects and a final major research project.

Entry Requirements

The entry requirements for your electrical engineering degree will depend on where you choose to study. They will also be influenced by the level of study for which you are applying. For a postgraduate degree, most universities will expect you to have an undergraduate degree in electrical or electronic engineering, or a closely related subject.
