In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption. We are no longer offering unrestricted module choice. If your course included unrestricted modules, your department will provide a list of modules from their own and other subject areas that you can choose from.

Teaching

We deliver research-led teaching with individual support for your research project and dissertation.

Assessment

Assessment is by examinations, coursework and a project dissertation with poster presentation.

Duration

Student profile

Postgraduate electronic and electrical engineering students with equipment

I chose the University of Sheffield due to its great reputation for engineering courses. More specifically, I chose electrical engineering because I had conducted an electronics based final year project for my undergraduate degree. I wanted to continue studying electronics and gain further knowledge in the field.
