Electrical and Electronic Engineering is characterised by the need for continuing education and training. Today, most Electrical and Electronic Engineers require more than is delivered in a conventional four-year undergraduate programme. The aim of the MEngSc (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) programme is to provide advanced coursework with options for a research element or industrial element, and additional professional development coursework. Students choose from a range of courses in Analogue, Mixed Signal, and RF Integrated Circuit Design, VLSI Architectures, Intelligent Sensors and Wireless Sensor Networks, Wireless Communications, Robotics and Mechatronics, Advanced Power Electronics and Electric Drives, Optoelectronics, Adaptive Signal Processing and Advanced Control. A range of electives for the coursework-only stream includes modules in Computer Architecture, Biomedical Design, Microsystems, Nano electronics, Innovation, Commercialisation, and Entrepreneurship.
Core modules in Electrical and Electronic Engineering are taught by academic staff from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and research staff at Tyndall National Institute. Electives in Business and Law are taught by staff from the College of Business and Law. Research projects are normally undertaken in University College Cork. Industrial placements are typically undertaken in Ireland.
