Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will prepare you for a career in sectors such as renewable energy, transport, manufacturing, and construction. From the aerospace and automotive sectors to telecommunications and power generation, engineers who are skilled in electrical and electronic engineering are in considerable demand across industry. Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees offers flexible pathways to tailor your studies. You can specialise by taking our individual degrees in Electrical Engineering and Electronic Engineering, which are accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET). Both specialist degrees partially meet the requirements for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer. If you are unsure which area suits you, the combined Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree lets you explore both disciplines (Note: Accreditation is currently being sought for the combined pathway). This course is ideal for a career in a range of areas including renewable energy, telecommunications, transport networks, construction and more.
