- Entry requirements
We require a good Upper Second Class Honours degree or international equivalent in an electrical and electronic engineering discipline. Candidates from other scientific disciplines are encouraged to apply, provided they can demonstrate strength in mathematics and other suitable subjects such as dynamics, signals and systems, or classical control.
To progress to the second year of this course, we usually require performance at Distinction level. Students who do not meet the criteria for progression to the second year will instead graduate with the one-year Advanced Control & Systems Engineering MSc or an alternative appropriate qualification.
When assessing your academic record, we take into account your grade average with particular emphasis on relevant course units and the standing of the institution where you studied your qualification.
- How to apply
As there is high demand for this course we operate a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year. Please find more information in our Application and Selection section.
