Master Electrical Engineering for Modern Sustainable Transport Systems - Máster en Ingeniería Eléctrica para Sistemas Modernos de Transporte Sostenible
Full-time - 1 Year; Part-time - 2 Years
This course builds on our world-class research work in electrical and electronic engineering, materials and devices, robotics, mechatronics, computer networks and telecommunications. It is funded by the European Union, Research Councils, Royal Society, Knowledge Transfer Programmes, and industrial companies.
Students can choose the project, either as a part of ongoing research work in our research laboratories or in our partner industrial companies. This course can also be tailored as an in-house course, please contact the Course Director for details.
To apply for a Taught Masters postgraduate course at LSBU you need one of the following:
- IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 580 (Paper) or 237 (Computer) or 90 (Internet)
- Licenciado/Título de Ingeniero/Título de Arquitecto, average 6.0-6.9 (old grading system), or 1.5 in new grading system
For Postgraduate Diploma and Masters courses the normal entry qualification is an Honours degree or equivalent. For some Postgraduate Diplomas alternative qualifications are accepted along with relevant work experience. The University considers each application on its merits and is prepared to admit candidates who can demonstrate they have reached the normal entry requirements on the basis of prior experiential learning.
The course aims to provide knowledge, experience and skills that are essential for research and development work. It is research oriented, with 80 percent of the time spent on a research project and the other 20 percent on taught units. It is designed to develop key research skills, build up in-depth technical knowledge and understanding as well as project management skills, communications skills and presentation skills.
