Think of all the advances in technology over the years, from games consoles and smart phones to drones and self-driving cars. The role of electronic engineers in the future will be crucial as we become increasingly reliant on faster, more intelligent technologies. On this course you’ll learn about the many aspects of electronic engineering in a practical and engaging way. WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). It fulfils the educational criteria required to gain Incorporated Engineer status (IEng), and it will support progression to Chartered Engineer status (CEng) with further study and experience. This course also meets the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) which is set by the Engineering Council. We pay Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) student membership fees for all of our students. MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE The £100 million that the university has invested in its buildings and facilities over the past 10 years includes our Analogue and Digital Electronics Engineering Laboratory and our Telecommunications and Signal Processing Laboratory. Both labs are fully equipped with industry standard experimental and computational hardware and software from radio receivers and walking robots to advanced digital signal processing (DSP) kits. WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? This course is suited to students who are keen to explore the hands-on, practical side of electronic engineering. SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED: On this course you will gain theoretical an practical knowledge of the design of electronic systems; use modern and sophisticated equipment for measurement and analysis; experiment with our range of control applications; and choose your area of specialism. You can also apply to do an optional year-long placement in industry which will put you ahead of the field when applying for graduate jobs. AFTER THE COURSE There is a current shortage of engineers and our courses are aimed at educating engineers for a multitude of different careers in engineering and technology. Not only does it meet the requirements of the major engineering graduate programmes, it gives you the chance to sample the workplace with a year-long industrial placement. Placement employers may even offer a sponsorship for your remaining years of study, a job offer on graduation, or both.
