Aim for a career at the highest level of engineering, on a well-respected course designed to put you on the path to chartered engineer status. If you are interested in how and why things work, we can help you develop the problem-solving skills and knowledge needed to answer these questions. You study a range of electrical and electronic engineering specialisms, including the design and implementation of • electrical power and electronic systems • embedded systems • networks using communications and signal processing techniques • appropriate engineering management • instrumentation and control systems You also benefit from working to deadlines for real time demonstrations and investigative project work. From engaging in investigative project work and group based assignments you learn a range of skills required for success in the engineering workplace. These include critical thinking, time management, project resourcing and communication. **Placements and work experience** Industry fully supports the course with • work placements • course planning • visits • real projects • case studies • guest lectures. This connection with industry helps to increase your career opportunities and employability. You work alongside practising engineers who are industry-sponsored students studying part-time. Our industrial sponsors include companies such as • Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Ltd • BAE Systems • Associated British Ports (ABP) • BP Chemicals • Bombardier Transportation UK Ltd. The course is designed to show you how academic theory, simulation and case studies connect with practical project work. Students enjoy using high level instrumentation in our laboratories. This builds your confidence in testing, design prototyping and investigative projects. After the first two years, you can do a paid one-year placement with a national or multinational corporation, including • Siemens, Solihull • CSE-Global (UK) Ltd, Sheffield • Serck Controls Ltd, Barnsley • ARM, Cambridge • TBG Solutions, Chesterfield. **Facilities** In your final year project, you use theory and industry-standard specialised hardware and software, including target systems (not simply simulations) to find solutions to practical problems. Typical examples of projects include work on • nanotechnology for quantum dot applications • noxious gas sensor circuits • solar powered refrigeration • fingerprint recognition • optimisation of industrial plant control **Professional recognition** This programme is CEng accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and fulfils the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer when presented with an accredited MSc. In addition, the programme meets the educational requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer.
