Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Do you have the ambition to develop the electrical power systems and renewable energies of tomorrow? Whether focused on embedded microcontrollers, power converters, or high frequency communications, you’ll be developing your understanding of the high-level aspects of electronics on the BEng course. Electrical and electronic engineering, accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), will provide you with a solid foundation for engineering a wide range of electrical systems. You will balance laboratory sessions with hands-on practical experiences throughout the course. You’ll draw on our strong industry links and benefit from industry participation in course development, delivery and project sponsorship. You’ll take advantage of our flexible course, allowing you to switch between electronics and robotics until your final year, as your interests develop. * Benefit from outstanding teaching: in the 2016 National Student Survey 100 per cent of our final year students said that “The course is intellectually stimulating”. * Immerse yourself in a degree accredited by the Institution for Engineering and Technology (IET) to meet the educational requirements for chartered engineer (CEng) status after some additional learning, either workbased or further advanced study. Develop highly practical skills and learn through doing. * Draw on our strong industry links and benefit from industry participation in course development, delivery and project sponsorship. * Take advantage of our flexible course, allowing you to switch between electronics and robotics until your final year, as your interests develop. * Develop your skills, with opportunities throughout your degree to build and program embedded systems, advanced mobile communications devices, and solar power systems. * Demonstrate your abilities to future employers with your final year project. Many of our graduates quote this aspect as having helped them get a good job. * Access one of the largest undergraduate laboratory spaces in the country, which you can use to further your own understanding of communications, electronics and renewable energy technologies. * Study a broad range of topics from electrical and electronics, power, communications and microprocessors before choosing your final year project to gain expertise and experience in a specialist area.
