A week in the life of a postgraduate on our MSc in Electronic Engineering
From lectures to laboratory-based practicals and personal tutorials, discover what a typical week looks like for a student on our MSc in Electronic Engineering.
How you'll learn
Your teaching will be delivered through a combination of:
* Group work
* Interactive in-class learning
* Laboratory-based practicals
* Online learning
Outside of these, you’ll be expected to carry out independent study, including coursework, essays and reading.
“What I’ve enjoyed most about the course is the way you’re encouraged to develop self-learning skills. The facilities you get to use reflect the latest developments that are going on in the technical world, too.”
Vikrant Singh, Electronic Engineering MSc
We’ve also introduced hybrid learning, a mix of online and face-to-face sessions, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A typical week
You'll receive approximately 12-16 contact hours each week, depending on how many extra laboratories or tutorials are involved on top of lectures. A full-time student will spend about 40 hours studying each week, including the contact hours.
There are also many opportunities for activities in societies and clubs in the evenings, on Wednesday afternoons and at weekends.
9-11am – Nanoscience and Nanotechnology – Lecture
2-5pm – Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing – Lecture
9am-12pm – Nanofabrication and Characterisation – Lab Workshop
10am-12pm – Digital Communications – Lecture
Please note, Wednesday afternoons are left free for sporting or other University society activities.
9-11am – Internet of Things – Lecture
2-3pm – Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing – Tutorial
11am-1pm – Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing – Lab Workshop
2-3pm – Nanoscience and Nanotechnology – Lecture
