We have a large number of students taking both PhD and Masters level courses.

If you are interested in completing a PhD programme in this subject group please contact us by email photonics@aston.ac.uk to find out more about current opportunities.

Our Masters Level programmes have been designed in partnership with the UK's leading telecommunications organisations, our programme has the full support of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Federation of the Electronics Industry (FEI) Telecommunications and Radio Council.

Our long-established MSc Telecommunications Technology is designed to develop or update a wide range of technical understanding, engineering 'know-how' and professional skills needed to contribute effectively to the design and development of telecommunication systems for national and international networks, and to enter telecommunications research.

We also offer MSc Data Communication Networks which will be of interest to students interested in developing their technical careers in areas related to the design and development of data communications networks or to those wishing to enter research in this field.

Our new MSc Sensors and Sensing Systems provides students with a core understanding of the generic instrumentation and signal processing requirements common to all sensing applications together with a choice of more specialised modules relating to specific application areas and industries.

A MSc Professional Engineering is now also being offered across all Academic Groups in the School of Engineering.

We also offer Electronic Engineering Distance Learning and Part-time Study options.
