**This course is professionally accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. As well as your main Imperial degree, you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the City and Guilds of London Institute (ACGI) on completion of this course.** Electrical and electronic engineers are at the forefront of the challenge to use technology to improve the performance of electronic equipment in terms of speed, cost and sustainability; to improve power distribution and control for a robust and sustainable future energy network; and to improve communication in different aspects of life. It’s a discipline which impacts on almost every area of our lives, including communications, commerce, entertainment, manufacturing, healthcare, transport, energy and the environment. Years one and two follow a core programme covering the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering in areas such as analogue and digital electronics, communication and control, alongside mathematics and computing modules. You will learn to analyse and optimise systems by modelling them. You will also focus on programming, with the chance to use the latest computing technologies. Group projects in your second and third year let you investigate the technical, social and financial aspects of products and services, and how to design, build and test them. You will also have weekly classes in the electrical and computer laboratories to gain valuable practical experience. In your third year you start to design your degree programme to fit your interests and skills in consultation with your personal tutor. You choose from a range of advanced subjects in electrical and electronic engineering, together with a humanities or language module through Imperial Horizons or a business module in collaboration with Imperial College Business School. The most important part of this year is the individual project. It allows you to implement the technical information assimilated over the course of your degree, and develop novel approaches to present-day problems. By your final year you'll be fully equipped to demonstrate all your knowledge, skills and innovation in a large and ambitious individual project. This project is the most important single piece of work in your degree programme, giving you the chance to demonstrate independence and originality, and to plan and organise a large project. The common first and second years of our Electrical and Electronic Engineering courses mean that transfer between streams is usually possible up until the end of your second year; or third year for the Year Abroad option. If you wish to transfer from an Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree to a degree in Electronic and Information Engineering you need to do so by the start of the first year. If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your Tier 4 visa, but our International Student Support Team are here to help advise and support you.
