Electrical and Electronic Engineering (with a year abroad)

This is for you if... you want to study areas such as power generation and transmission, electrical machines and actuators, power electronics, programmable electronics and control systems. Engineers are innovators who bring about change through their ingenuity, experience and curiosity to improve the quality of life for people throughout the world. Their work is central to thriving economies and competitive industries. It is equally important in developing countries where engineers provide appropriate technologies during difficult times of change. Professional engineers have a high degree of specialist knowledge but increasingly they use a broad approach to problem solving across a range of engineering disciplines. This is coupled with an awareness of environmental, social, legal, economic and regulatory aspects of the problem at hand. Whether you study for the BEng or the MEng, your Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will combine a multidisciplinary approach to design with specific skills in electronics and power engineering, communications, control and computer programming. Building on a broad foundation of engineering studies in Year 1, you will develop specific expertise and skills in electrical engineering, communications, semiconductors, electrical machines and microprocessor programming.
