Masters of Engineering in Electronic Engineering
VUT Research offers postgraduate students the opportunity to complete their Masters of Engineering in Electronic Engineering. We offer this qualification at our Vanderbijlpark campus only. The curriculum consists of a research project with a dissertation and the duration of the course is at least one year of full-time study. Through this course, our students are able to further their education and develop into researchers who are able to go on to conduct independent research within their chosen field of electronic engineering. We aim to promote a lifelong learning approach and develop an aptitude for educating other students within all our postgraduate students.
Build Your Future In Electronic Engineering
- International Focus -VUT Research’s degrees and academic programmes are internationally recognised
- Focus On Electronic Processes -utilizes nonlinear and active electrical components (such as semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits) to design electronic circuits, devices, VLSI devices
- Facilities -At VUT Research we have world-class research facilities and resource access.
Electronic Engineering Course Requirements
In order for students to qualify to complete their Masters of Engineering in Electronic Engineering they need to achieve the following:
- Baccalaureus Technologiae: Engineering (Electronics) with an average of at least 65%
- Proof of successful completion of a Vaal University of Technology approved course in Research Methodology
Ad hoc cases will be treated on merit.
A Masters of Engineering in Electronic Engineering is a powerful acknowledgement of the student’s hard work, discipline, and knowledge of the subject. Achieving this degree is a great achievement and sets a biotechnologist in good stead in their future endeavours.
The proposed topic must be appropriate for higher degree research and it must be consistent with the academic aims and objectives of the student.
The student must have access to the necessary resources, facilities and the necessary budget in order to complete the degree within the timeframe.
There must be a qualified staff member holding confirmed, continuous or fixed-term appointments of sufficient length for the purposes of supervision of the proposed research and student.
The proposed program of work must be able to be completed within the maximum period of submission for the degree.
A suitable level of contact with the university supervisors must be maintained.
Where the applicant is currently employed, capacity to meet the timelines and other requirements must be considered.
The proposed research cannot reproduce research that has previously been submitted for the award of a degree or diploma.
Where the intellectual property rights of the applicant may be a consideration, a suitable agreement protecting the rights of the student needs to be signed. If the student is unwilling to sign an agreement, the research proposal may not be approved and the student may be required to choose another topic in an area that is not commercially sensitive.
The applicant should have no outstanding financial obligation with the University and in the case of international applicants, they should be able to verify the necessary financial capacity to undertake the program.
The applicant must possess sufficient English language proficiency.
A Career in Electronic Engineering allows students to enjoy careers as technologists in fields such as electronic design and development, electronic maintenance, electronic communication and design and development and electronic communication development. Once the student has completed a Masters of Engineering in Electronic Engineering can take their careers further and develop into research positions within the field. Researchers in the field of engineering are important as their knowledge, skills and the information gained through their research will contribute greatly towards the development of products within the specialization fields. A Masters qualification allows our students to go beyond practicing engineering and look at ways in which they can add to and improve on existing technologies. We encourage a sense of lifelong learning within our postgraduate students and encourage them to better the community around them through sharing of knowledge and skills.
