Our BEng Electronic Engineering course will develop you as an engineer at the forefront of industry. The Foundation Year course option enables you to study for our BEng (Hons) degree over an extended full-time duration of four years by including a Foundation Certificate (year one of four). The Foundation Certificate provides a broad study programme that underpins your degree. You will gain an understanding of the social, commercial, legal, ethical, economic and environmental factors associated with engineering, as well as comprehensive knowledge of the science and mathematics associated with the discipline. You will also develop the key transferrable skills that modern employers require, such as problem solving, project planning, presentation and communication. Our competitions, such as the annual Global Game Jam, will give you the chance to not only help run an acclaimed event, but also to build and design your own creations, giving you invaluable practical experience. You’ll work with our state-of-the-art technology and resources, including rapid prototyping, laser-cutting and CNC machining, as well as suites of open-access PCs. You have the option to undertake an industrial placement year in order to gain valuable work experience. We are ideally located at the University’s flagship City Centre Campus, based in Millennium Point. In 2017, we are spending £8.7 million on improvements to our Millennium Point facilities so you’ll have even more access to dedicated, industry-standard equipment.
