Electrical and Electronic Engineering - Research Opportunities

Liverpool John Moores University

Masters Degree , Electrical And Electronic Engineering

Course Description

MPhilPhD studies in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering are offered at full-time and part-time basis. The courses are entirely research based and do not contain a taught component. The specific areas in which MPhilPhD studies are offered include: microelectronics and VLSI design electric machines, variable speed drives and power electronics control engineering automotive engineering GRID computing, Networks and Telecommunications. There is a continuous demand from industry for students educated to MPhilPhD standard, to take up the research positions and positions at a higher level. A demand also exists for those already in these positions to study at the MPhilPhD level. Historically, those who had a previous long-term industrial career filled many of these positions. However, in the rapidly moving field such as Electrical and Electronic Engineering keeping up the pace with the newest developments is very difficult. Hence a research degree (MPhil or PhD) is proving as the best option to catch up with the most up-to-date advancements in various areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The minimum period for a full-time study is three years. Part-time study mode is also welcome and the minimum period of time required is four years. Currently we have the following research interests: Microelectronics Experimental semiconductor physics VLSI design Modelling of electrical machinery Control of variable speed electric drives Power electronic converters (inverters) General control engineering Control in automotive engineering Applications of artificial intelligence in control engineering GRID computing and Telecommunications Networks Career prospects The graduate destinations are expected to be various manufacturing industries related to electrical and electronic engineering, car manufacturers, railway companies, computer and telecommunications industry, as well as utilities and consulting companies. Entry requirements BScBEng (Hons) 2.1 (minimum) or MSc degree in a relevant subject. Applicants with MSc degree may be eligible for direct PhD registration. Attendance 7 hoursday for full-time research or 4 hoursday for part-time research.
