Engineering

Housed in a brand new, award-winning building, we are a top 10 engineering department with 100% of our research impact being world-leading and internationally excellent (REF2014).

Electronic Engineering

Entry requirement: Specific A level requirement:  Mathematics grade B

Our Electronic and Electrical Engineering Pathway will help you develop a sound foundation in all aspects of Electronic and Electrical Engineering that is crucial to the design and manufacture of future systems in the medical, environmental, energy, transport, communications and ICT markets. You will also have the opportunity to specialise in areas including wireless communications, silicon chip design, nanotechnology, green technologies and power generation.

Due to the complexity of this subject and the background knowledge it requires in later years, this pathway is double weighted. As such you can only take one other pathway with this option.
