Featured Course


Offered By: The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus

This MSc is designed to provide instruction and training in the most recent developments in a broad area of technology covering Electronic Communications and Computer Engineering. The course aims to provide students with an advanced and comprehensive coverage of specialist skills required by an engineer working in electronic instrumentation, telecommunications (both wireless and wired) and computer hardware and software aspects of computer engineering. The programme provides an excellent basis for engineers wishing to update their knowledge, or students who wish to go on to do research, or for first degree students wishing to enhance their training.
