Electronic Engineering (MRes)Bangor University
About this program
Electronic Engineering - MRes
Each program is aligned to the research conducted within Electronic Engineering. The MRes program provides a dedicated route for high-calibre students who are ready to carry out independent research (and possibly have a specific research aim in mind) leading to PhD level study or who are seeking a stand alone research-based qualification suitable for a career in research with transferable skills for graduate employment.
It is the normal expectation that the independent research thesis (120 credits) should be of at a standard publishable in a high quality peer reviewed journal. Each MRes shares the taught element of the course. After successful completion of the taught element you are then able to specialise in a specific subject for your thesis.

We welcome applicants who have gained an Honours degree in Electronic Engineering, Physics or a related scientific discipline, at a 2.ii level or higher or the international equivalent. Applicants with initial degrees in other disciplines will be considered on an individual basis, with the assessment based on the applicant’s potential to succeed on, and benefit from, the course.
Applicants from overseas must in addition demonstrate competence in English to level IELTS 6.0 overall and no element under 5.5 with a writing score of 6.5. An appropriate ELCOS (Bangor University English Language School) pre-sessional course may be taken to achieve the required English language level.

Modelling and Design
This module focuses on the simulation and design of electronic devices using an advanced software package – COMSOL. This powerful commercial software package is extremely adaptable and can be used to simulate and design a very wide range of physical systems.
Research methods and study skills
This module focuses on the skills required to scope, plan, execute and report the outcomes of research project.
Intro to micro and nanotechnology
This module focuses on the device fabrication techniques at the nano and micro scale.
After the successful completion of the taught component of the program, the major individual thesis project will be undertaken within Bangor’s world-leading Electronic Engineering research groups.
Optional Modules include
- RF and Optical MEMS
- Advanced Sensor Systems
- Optical Communications & Systems

Scholarships & funding
Several scholarship options are available. Please check the university website for more information.
Please contact the institute for more information.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn an MEng degree.
Graduates of these courses have gone on to work in various branches of the Electronics industry, for example optical communications and telecommunications companies, government research facilities like GCHQ, and various nanotechnology enterprises, from start-ups to multinational companies.
Many MRes students will continue postgraduate study after graduating, going on to MPhil and Phd aprograms. Whatever your final destination, MRes graduates will have demonstrable independent research skills and the ability to scope and manage complicated technical projects. You will also have developed scientific and engineering skills specific to your particular area of study, from scanning probe microscopy to finite element modelling which are of immediate applicability in technical industries.
