  1. Research-led teaching
    Studying in Surrey’s Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering puts you at the heart of a vibrant, exciting research community. The University is a pioneer in areas such as nanotechnology, 5G communications, satellites, space engineering, robotics and machine learning, and this research feeds directly into our postgraduate teaching.
     
  2. Wide range of modules
    We offer 11 different MSc pathways, which means you can customise your course to your specific areas of interest and career aspirations. You can choose from a huge range of modules on our Electronic Engineering MSc, or specialise on a course which feeds into a specific area of industry such as our Computer Vision, Robotics and Machine Learning MSc or our 5G and Future Generation Communication Systems MSc.
     
  3. Flexible study options
    You can study for our masters courses full-time (one year) or part-time (two years), or you can choose to take our two-year Electronic Engineering (EuroMasters) MSc, which combines taught modules with an extended project and the chance to do an industry placement.
     
  4. Professional recognition
    Our MSc courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and meet the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer, which makes them a great choice if you have a BEng or BSc degree qualification. This professional recognition is essential to the employability of our graduates in a wide range of industries. Some of our recent graduates have gone on to roles at Airbus, Vodafone, European Space Agency and Microsoft, while others have met the challenge of key roles in small to medium-sized enterprises.
     
  5. Work in a world-leading research centre
    You’ll get the opportunity to carry out your own project within one of our world-leading research centres: the Institute for Communication Systems (home to our 5G Innovation Centre, the UK’s largest academic centre for research into next generation communications), Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, Surrey Space Centre, and Advanced Technology Institute.
