From low-power processors for mobile phone technology to heavy-duty power electronics for wind turbines, the design of electronic and electrical systems is challenging and requires a clear understanding of both the physics and the broader system in which it operates, necessitating teamwork and the determination to find ingenious solutions. With advances in technology for medicine, efficiency in transportation, safety monitoring systems, surveillance, entertainment, wireless communications, manufacturing and computing, renewable energy generation and more sophisticated technologies for connecting generating capacity to the grid, to name just a few areas, electronics and electrical engineering lead where others follow. Our Industrial Liaison Board includes senior representatives from important electronics and electrical engineering companies and has influenced curriculum and programme development. All students are encouraged to undertake relevant work-experience during their degree and we work closely with the Careers Service to advertise internship opportunities and arrange company presentations. This can be recognised on the student's transcript through completion of an Edinburgh Award.
