What will you study?
You will receive tuition and guidance from our staff who are leading experts in the areas of electronics design, RF and wireless technologies, sensors and instrumentation, nanotechnology and renewable energy.
Our Electronic and Electrical Engineering degree will help you develop a sound foundation in all aspects of Electronic and Electrical Engineering that are 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.
You start your degree following core Engineering and Engineering Mathematics subjects with modules such as Electrical and Electronic Fundamentals. You’ll then choose your specialisation and preferred modules for your remaining years, including Electrical and Fluid Drives, Engineering Management and Integrated Circuit Engineering.
Additionally, in your fourth and final year you will undertake industry-linked projects. These will provide you with more in-depth knowledge and highly-valued project management and leadership experience.
Where could it take you?
Many of our graduates go on to work with the companies we have strong links with, often starting on salaries in excess of £26,500 per annum. Recent Engineering graduates have embarked upon careers as electronic, mechanical, applications, design and nuclear systems engineers.
As well as specific technical knowledge, your Engineering degree teaches you skills of logical analysis, communication, problem-solving and project management. They are used by our graduates for work in design, project engineering and management, research, contracts, sales and marketing and data analysis. Our graduates also choose to continue their studies to MSc and PhD level.
