The course is modular with a carefully balanced combination of technical, business and management modules aimed at producing graduates who can enter industry and make an immediate contribution; each year of the course requires students to complete a core set of modules along with an expanding set of domain specific modules as the course advances; the choice of pathways within the degree allows students to gain knowledge in their chosen field of electrical or electronics applications. Unlike careers in medicine or law, careers in electronic engineering are what could be termed 'hidden careers' yet they are every bit as important to our society and our lives. From medical equipment to mobile phones, from the safety of our vehicles to reducing the environmental impact of our washing machines and in the gadgets that transform our leisure time, you will find the work of electronic engineers. You are encouraged to complete a one year sandwich placement after your second year of study. The experiential learning usually improves your final year performance and subsequent career progression.
