Expand your expertise with the technical depth and project work experience you need to progress further in an electronic engineering career on our MEng degree programme. The extra year’s study leads to a deeper understanding of the subject and its real-world application. You’ll get the chance to work on a wider range of projects, including group work that could involve our professional partners and collaborators - BAE Systems, NASA, the NHS and the Northwest Aerospace Alliance, among others. And just as importantly, you’ll develop a range of transferable skills, like teamwork, decision-making, delegation, identifying and solving problems, and communication - all skills employers prize. UCLan has links with worldwide organisations, and can therefore arrange for work experience in the UK or abroad. Recent overseas placements include a 10 week NASA research experience for undergraduates programme. This is where a student from UCLan is paired with mentor at the University of Alabama specialising in theory, modelling, computer simulations, data analysis or instrument design to work on a summer research project in the US. Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever, which means the career options for you are varied. You could find yourself working in high value manufacturing - perhaps aerospace or the automotive industry - or in the Ministry of Defence, or in research and development. Careers in digital communications, consumer electronics, security and surveillance, as well as banking and commerce, are also open to graduates.
