Our stimulating Electronic and Electrical Engineering with Industrial Year BEng degree programme enables you to gain strong theoretical and practical skills in electronic and electrical engineering and to collaborate with academics who are global experts in their field. At the University of Birmingham we recognise that successful 21st Century engineers will thrive alongside professionals with wide-ranging expertise. Our flagship Integrated Design Projects run throughout Years 1-3 of your degree. You’ll work alongside Mechanical and Civil Engineers to develop designs for technologies with impact in the world. In your first year you’ll learn computer aided design, about engineering processes and human-technology interactions. You will be the subject expert on a major project during your degree, the projects are set and assessed alongside our partners from major industries. You’ll apply your in-depth technical knowledge and also learn how to share your ideas through virtual reality. In these projects, you’ll gain vital employability skills that will give you a competitive edge in applications forms, interviews and assessment tests for graduate jobs. Digital and analogue technologies and their applications will continue to evolve at lightning speed, so our modules are designed to ensure you can play a leading role in inventing, designing and managing them. Our Electronic and Electrical Engineering with Industrial Year BEng degree gives you the opportunity to study core subjects and explore your own pathway with optional modules. You can really focus on the areas that interest you the most in your final year. You will apply the creative, technical, analytical and decision making skills you have developed into delivering an individual research project as well as a group design project. Whether you have applied for the ‘with Industrial Year’ degree from the outset or decide to join the scheme once you are here, a year in industry is an invaluable addition you can choose for your degree. You will be involved in serious projects at the core of the company’s business, with training and support. We’ll be in touch with you throughout the year too. You’ll gain experience of applying what you’ve learned in the early years of your degree to real engineering challenges.
