What will I learn?

Boost your abilities to perform rigorous intellectual analysis and solve complex problems in an engineering field of your choice with this research qualification.

Programme overview

Gain access to our advanced facilities and establish contact with world-class experts. Join us to innovate, improve and push forward the frontiers of knowledge. This research programme allows you to choose from a variety of specializations and contribute to your preferred field, allowing the potential to apply your in-depth expertise to further study.

The ME is structured to help you develop a sense of independence and confidence in your ability to think critically and conduct fundamental or applied research. Regardless of your specialization, you will engage with a stimulating mix of theory and analysis, setting you apart in your pursuit of higher-level opportunities.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering:

A strong research focus is vital to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and postgraduate study in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is no exception. You’ll gain opportunities to tackle projects alongside world-class researchers involved in designing real-world applications, such as the Forensics, Audio and Biometrics Group, our internationally-recognised researchers in power electronics, and more.

Major topics may include:

  • Design and application of sophisticated medical electronics
  • Computer modelling
  • Electromagnetics
  • Forensic speech analysis
  • Green energy
  • Information technology
  • Local and international telecommunications networks
  • Power systems
  • Radio system design
  • Signal processing
  • Wireless power charging

Programme structure

You may pursue either a 120 point or 180 point ME in one of our approved specializations. This is generally dependent on your prior study. Both options require the completion of a 120 point research thesis.

Your thesis topic, which will involve discussions with your supervisor, is determined by your chosen specialization.

The 180 point ME is intended for students with a relevant three-year bachelor’s degree, such as engineering, science or architecture. This requires the selection of an additional 60 points of courses from a list of taught classes relevant to your chosen research specialization.

Where could this programme take you?

An engineering master s degree confirms your ability to investigate an important issue with research expertise, work with initiative, make sound judgments, draw conclusions and write a thesis to explain your arguments. These are extremely marketable qualities that can be used to widen your career options and general employability, both immediately after you finish your masters, and later on in your career.
