About

The Electronic Engineering (by research) course from University of York is a one year full-time programme (two years part-time) based on a research project which may be in any area of staff expertise. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

As a member of one of the Department’s research groups you will be supervised on a one-to-one basis by a member of academic staff.  Progress of all research students is continually guided by a supervisor and a thesis advisory panel.  The award of the degree is made following the submission and successful examination of a thesis (which is usually around 15,000 to 20,000 words).

Research Projects

As part of any application for a research degree you have to name one or more academic staff who could supervise your research. Have a look through the staff list which gives a brief description of staff research interests and use this along with the example projects to identify a potential supervisor(s). Some of the PhD projects listed may also be suitable for the MSc by Research – please contact the member of academic staff involved to find out if the project can be adapted for an MSc by Research.

Students of the Electronic Engineering (by research) course from University of York are also encouraged to take advanced taught courses in Electronic Engineering to help fill any gaps in the background knowledge required for the research project. The choice of courses taken will be made together with the supervisor, at the beginning of the programme.

Programme Structure

  • You will have a supervisor who will help you with your research. 
  • You need to be able to work independently: although discussion with other students, researchers and academic supervisors is frequent and encouraged, you will be the only one working on your project.
  • An MSc by Research is assessed only on the basis of a final written thesis, which must be written to a standard comparable to leading research in the chosen field.
