About your course Completing the BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University will enable you to graduate with a degree-level qualification plus advanced level skills and experience that will boost your career prospects and future earning potential. Electrical and electronic engineers are also involved in the ongoing development and production of a diverse range of products, and so companies supplying anything from bread to jet engines, from mobile phones to banking services will need their skills. Level 4 of this BEng (Hons) course covers core engineering principles and technologies such as mathematics, electrical engineering, electronics and instrumentation, microprocessors and programming. You will also spend time completing structured design projects, which will help develop your engineering and management skills. In the second year there is greater emphasis on the application of the core principles through design. Electronics and microprocessors are taught in the context of designing and controlling engineering systems and the mathematics course provides the essential skills to enable you to design control strategies, and supports the more mathematical modules of the programme. During your course, you will undertake projects that both structured and less structured allowing you more freedom to design your own solutions to problems. This is supported by seminars in commercial project development, which will teach you some of the key skills needed to plan and manage a project.. The third year of the programme covers the core themes of electronics, electrical power and management and you will undertake a major individual project with an academic supervisor. There are no additional costs for field trips, company visits or software. Only the normal costs such as calculators, notepads and similar are required. Foundation Year The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Electrical and Electronic Engineering honours degree programme yet. Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).
