From smartphones to cashpoints, we use electronics every day of our lives. Electronics is a crucial subject in a wide range of industries too, and it's at the heart of everything from manufacturing processes to the provision of services and logistics management. This course aims to give you the skills to open up lots of career options within the electronic engineering industry. The course is designed to give you a broad understanding of electronic systems, communications and control. We’ll look at digital, analogue and embedded computer-based systems, and you’ll have the chance to carry out project work to research a specialised area that interests you. You’ll be taught by professional engineers, many of whom have worked in the industry. If you apply for the BEng(Hons) route to begin with and then achieve a yearly average grade of 60% or more during your first two years, then you could go on to the integrated Master’s MEng course. That means you could study for an extra year to gain an even deeper understanding of the subject. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. Consequently you could become a registered Incorporated Engineer (IEng) if you graduate, and following further learning you could also be on your way to becoming a registered Chartered Engineer (CEng). After the second year of your course you’ll be given the chance to take a year’s placement working in industry. It could be the ideal opportunity to develop your skills even further to help you when you apply for a job after graduating.
