Electronic Engineering


Welcome from Dr John Williams, Electronic Engineering Head of Department and Dr Stylianos Sygletos, MSc Programme Director 

Welcome to the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) Subject Group in the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences. Our Masters programmes have a high reputation for preparing students to gain essential knowledge and skills for their future careers. I hope that you find the time spent with us will be thoroughly enjoyable and highly productive.

The MSc courses we offer aim to make you into professional engineers through enhancing your ability in understanding and dealing with challenges presented in communication systems and networks. If your background is not specifically in electronic, electrical or computer engineering, these courses can help you to develop transferable skills applicable to the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) sector.

This Handbook is intended as a reference resource for all MSc students in the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences, which we hope you will find useful. It includes a broad range of information an MSc student would like to know about such as course structures, assessment methods, and resources/services provided by the University and the College.  Meanwhile, if there is any further information that you require, please make enquires at the reception desk of the EPS College Office (MB133) for administrative matters, or contact your programme director for academic issues. 

We have also developed handbooks for our SMARTNET and PIXNET courses here:

We look forward to meeting with you and wish you every success in your studies at Aston.

Please take a look at the different areas of the handbook here, or you can use the quick reference index below.
