The electronics industry is global, and makes a huge contribution to the economy. It’s worth around £23bn in the UK alone. Engineers are vital to the success of the industry, and by studying to MEng level you’ll have the chance to gain the skills you need to create a great career in electronic engineering The integrated Master’s MEng course has higher entry requirements than the BEng route. You’ll study for an extra year, with the aim of giving you a deeper understanding of your subject. Both the MEng and the BEng are 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 lots of opportunities to carry out practical work. Plus in your third year, or fourth if you take a placement, you’ll be able to research a specialised area of your choice in depth. You’ll be taught by professional engineers, many of whom have worked in the industry. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. That means you could become 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. In your final year of your integrated Master’s you’ll also study modules such as finance and project management, aiming to give you a good grounding to become a manager in this vital field.
