Engineering

Specific A Level Entry Requirements: A level Mathematics, at least at Grade B

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). Due to the complexity of these subjects and the background knowledge it requires in later years, these pathways are double weighted. As such you can only take one other pathway with these options.

For more information, please read our guide on how Pathways work.

Electronic Engineering

You will develop a sound foundation of the subject that is crucial to the design and manufacture of future systems. You will have the opportunity to specialise in areas including wireless communications, silicon chip design, nanotechnology, green technologies and power generation.

To study on any particular Pathway you must meet the entry requirements of that subject. The information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
