Electrical and Electronic Engineering Design

The modern design engineer in the electrical and electronic engineering sector needs more than just subject knowledge and problem-solving ability. In today's multi-disciplinary industry, with integrated project teams, it is necessary to appreciate how individual responsibilities blend into a systems approach to design. At the heart of this BEng (Hons) is the engineering design process from conceptual design to deployment and disposal. This starts in year one with a self-contained project (such as Engineers Without Borders) that introduces you to the full project lifecycle. From second year, your skills will be expanded through a vertically-integrated project where you will get experience of various roles and increasing responsibility as you progress through the years. You will also be able to demonstrate your own engineering ability on complex individual projects, chosen to match your career aspirations or to demonstrate your adaptability. Core to the philosophy of this course is its multi-disciplinary nature. By working on applications from deep sea to deep space you will be able to use your expertise and knowledge and your ability to manage system-level design to evaluate a problem and formulate a solution. This course has been designed in conjunction with industry and is delivered by academics with extensive engineering experience so that you will graduate with the skills, both technical and personal, needed by the modern engineering sector.
