About the course

This is your chance to build on that undergraduate degree with advanced training and an in-depth research project. Take it and give yourself an edge in the jobs market.
The long menu of bite-sized optional modules means you can cover a lot of ground on this course. And you still get to specialise for your dissertation.
We also teach the techniques and transferable skills you’ll need for a career in industry, including programming with LabView, innovation management and Fortran for engineers.
For the dissertation, you'll carry out a research project of your own and write it up over the summer.
