Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Electronic and Electrical Engineering is integral to and embedded in the smooth functioning of our everyday lives. From mobile phones and computing, through to household gadgets, healthcare equipment, automotive and aerospace technology and on to transport infrastructure, defence and utility provision. From the light bulb to the internet, it is impossible to imagine a world without electricity and electronics. A modern integrated circuit may contain several billion miniaturised transistors in a few square centimetres and is capable of doing the most extraordinary things. Our long-established, Electronics and Electrical Engineering course is very well regarded by employers and is accredited in both MEng and BEng versions. These courses will provide a thorough grounding in the subjects required to invent, design, apply and integrate electrical and electronic components and systems in a range of different industrial sectors. The IET, InstMC and EI accredited MEng degree courses are aimed at the most ambitious of students who wish to develop highflying careers within different industrial sectors and to become the future leaders of industry in companies concerned with Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering. The MEng courses are the preferred route to achieving Chartered Engineer status. This course of four academic years allows high calibre students to develop their understanding of the role of Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering in the industrial context, over and beyond that of the BEng courses. Years 1 and 2 of the BEng and MEng courses are similar, but from there on, each course develops its own flavour and engineering emphasis and each student can further tailor their course with optional modules to suit personal preferences and aptitudes. In the third and fourth academic years, the MEng courses provide enhanced opportunities to study your chosen specialist subjects in depth. In addition, MEng students follow extra modules in business management and application of management theory, and are offered the chance to study a language.
