Engineers are currently on the UK skills shortage list, and this includes electronic engineers, making our MSc Electronic Systems Engineering and Engineering Management course the ideal platform for future-proofing your career.
If you’re looking to develop your skills, there’s nowhere better to begin your retraining journey than the University of Bolton. Here are just five reasons why we’re a great place for Postgraduates interested in electronic engineering:
We encourage students to get work experience by going on placements or taking on industry-based projects, and will support them throughout these projects. This means you can gain hands-on experience, helping you apply learned theory to real practice.
During the programme, you’ll get the chance to explore advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Discover the latest techniques used in the design and control of automated machinery, and experience first-hand the most up-to-date practices in electronic and computer systems engineering.
It’s our goal to make you highly employable in a range of sectors and settings, so growing your transferable skill set is key. There are a range of professions you can pursue once you graduate, and our dedicated Employability Team will work with you on completion of the course to secure you a job in your chosen area.
Our programme brings together a unique blend of practical engineering and management-orientated learning, preparing you for leadership roles. Lectures and training will cover everything from contract negotiation and stakeholder management to procurement to ensure you have a complete understanding of the commercial side of projects.
We create a positive and friendly learning environment for students to reach their potential. Plus, we provide one-to-one mentorship to ensure everyone gets the attention and support they need during the programme.
We also rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), and in the Top 50 UK Universities for Electrical Engineering Courses in The Guardian University League Tables 2021, making us one of the best places in the country for Postgraduate studies.
