software tools such as VEE, MULTISIM and MATLAB used extensively. 


key skills in design, modelling and analysis of circuit design. 

Why choose this course?

Electrical and Electronic Engineering is now an important part of many cutting-edge industries.

  • In the automotive industry, Electronic and Electrical Engineers are required to design engine control units, dashboard indicators, air-conditioning, safety, braking, and infotainment systems. 
  • They are also involved with signalling and advanced railway control systems, as well as telecoms for mobile phone applications. There are also many roles for them in the energy industries, designing and running complex control systems such as those needed to run the National Grid or to control a nuclear power station.
  • Electronic and Electrical Engineering graduates are also desired for the fast moving consumer goods industry, such as in the development of the latest smart screens and the use of intelligent transducers in both industrial and home automation environments.


Key course features

  • This course will help to prepare students for fast-changing roles in E&E Engineering.
  • Specialism's within the programme feature modern power electronics and drive systems, combined with their controlling mechanisms and modelling, using MATLAB and state space models.
  • You will study the design, modelling and test algorithms for complex assemblies, and learn how to analyse circuit designs for both low and high frequencies.
  • Software development is also an integral part of a modern E&E Engineers role and to support this, software tools such as VEE, MULTISIM and MATLAB are used extensively in the course.

The information listed in this section is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal academic framework review, so may be subject to change.

Entry requirements & applying

Applicants should have an honours degree with at least a 2:2 classification or equivalent in an appropriate engineering discipline or relevant professional experience.

Teaching & Assessment

You will be assessed throughout your course through a variety of methods including portfolios, presentations and, for certain subjects, examinations.

Teaching and Learning

We offer workshops and support sessions in areas such as academic writing, effective note-making and preparing for assignments. Students can book appointments with academic skills tutors dedicated to helping you deal with the practicalities of university work. Our student support section has more information on the help available.

Teaching methods include lectures, laboratory sessions, student-led seminars and guided research.

Independent learning is an important aspect of all modules, as it enables students to develop both their subject specific and key skills. This is promoted through guided study or feedback given to students.

Career prospects

Our Careers and employability service is there to help you make decisions and plan the next steps towards a bright future. From finding work or further study to working out your interests, skills and aspirations, they can provide you with the expert information, advice and guidance you need.

The course equips you with a thorough knowledge and skills in engineering at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. Graduates will be well placed to become subject specialists within industry or to pursue research careers within academia.

Fees & funding

You do not have to pay your tuition fees upfront.

Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s tuition fees for 2022/23 for MSc Engineering (Electrical & Electronic) are £5940.

Subject to re-validation

As part of its continuous quality assurance and enhancement, the University reviews its courses on a regular basis to ensure that they reflect the needs of students and employers. Periodic review of the existing programmes is required every five years and major changes may be made to the programmes during the re-validation process. As soon as the programmes are re-validated the details of the course will be confirmed. The majority of courses that are still ‘subject to re-validation’ are approved by the validation process; however, this is not guaranteed and should the course not go ahead as planned, or be significantly amended, you will be informed by the university and assistance will be provided to those who have been offered a place to find a suitable alternative course either at Wrexham Glyndwr University or at another provider.


If you are applying as an European / International Student, and live outside of the UK, you should make your application through our online application system, Centurus.
