Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Summary: This degree embraces a broad spectrum of electrical and electronic engineering activities ranging from digital electronics and communications to electrical machines and power distribution. Course details: This broad base enables you to gain employment in a wide range of manufacturing sectors but is particularly useful for employment in traditional electrical, electronic or communications industries. The programme is built around a set of discipline-based threads. These threads include analogue and digital electronics (including microprocessors), control systems, communications systems, and electrical machines and power systems - which form the basis of a number of modules that run through all three years of the programme. Other modules, such as the mathematics, skills and project modules, support these threads and provide a more rounded (industrially relevant) educational experience.Our accredited BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme produces industry-ready graduates and meets the requirements of the Institution of Engineering Technology.According to information provided by Prospects (the official graduate careers website - 2011) chartered electronics/electrical engineers earn typically between £35,000 and £50,000, with highly experienced engineers earning £65,000 plus. After the course: Electrical and electronic engineers find employment in almost every sector of modern industry, including oil and gas, manufacturing, aerospace, communications, power generation and many others. Starting salaries for graduate electrical/electronic engineers start at around £25,000, increasing to around £65,000 when a senior level is reached (prospects.ac.uk 2016).
