Optional year in industry: The year in industry option will help you gain valuable work experience which will help you enhance your graduate employability prospects. During your placement you develop transferable skills such as communication, negotiation, teamwork, leadership, organisation, problem-solving, being able to work under pressure, self-reliance and commercial awareness. At the end of your work placement you return to complete your degree and prepare to enter employment with improved confidence. Our work placement officer and the University’s careers service are available to help you find and apply for your work placement. Advice is also available on job hunting and networking. Course overview: This course includes a foundation year - ideal if you need additional preparation or if you don't have sufficient grades to join Year 1. The foundation year helps you develop your knowledge in mathematics and other important subjects to enable you to proceed confidently through the remainder of the programme. The course embraces a broad spectrum of electrical and electronic engineering activities ranging from digital electronics and communications to electrical machines and power distribution. The broad base enables you to gain employment in a wide range of sectors but is particularly useful for employment in power generation, transmission and distribution, electronic design and manufacture or communications industries. There is also the opportunity to enter the field of sustainable and renewable energies through infrastructure and transport-related disciplines. The course is built around disciplines such as analogue and digital electronics (including microprocessors), control systems, communications systems, electrical machines and power systems to produce graduates with the skills and experience to analyse complex problems relevant to electrical and electronic engineering. After the course: In addition to developing your technical knowledge to work as an electrical engineer, the course develops your skills in report writing, presentations and collaborative working which are all essential in an engineering career. Electrical and electronic engineers find employment in almost every sector of modern industry, including power generation, transmission and distribution, manufacturing, aerospace, communications, electronic circuit design and many others. Graduates from this programme have been successful in gaining graduate engineering roles at Nissan, EDF, Mott McDonald, WSP, Northern Powergrid, MBDA, Hitachi, GSK and many others.
