This course delivers strong academic content conveyed with a factual focus, with the aim of preparing you to take on the challenges present in the field of electrical and electronic engineering. EEE engineers are hugely involved in the expanding world of electrical vehicle design and make enormous contributions in terms of technological innovation and advancement in a range of other specialised fields; for example, aerospace systems, civil engineering in projects such as high-speed train design and development.
- The course aims to develop and implement a multiplicity of systems associated with electrical and electronic engineering. On the electrical side, you could be involved in the generation, transmission and control of electrical energy or machine design and the implementation power drive systems, which links to power electronic engineering.
- From the outset, we aim to place an emphasis on innovation, design, and development to enable you the opportunity to enrich your technical skills in the field of electrification of vehicle and control systems.
- We further aim to develop your intellectual and independent thinking necessary to participate in contemporary projects and to peruse further studies and research in the field of electrical engineering.
- Well-equipped dedicated electronics laboratory to build electronic prototype.
- Modern electrical labs to explore high voltage systems.
- Placement opportunities within UK industries*
- Opportunities to gain international experience through field trips and group-based final year project*
This course has a common first year. The common first year enables you to work alongside students doing similar courses to you, to widen your knowledge and exposure to other subject areas and professions. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with other students, so you can share your insights and experience which will help you to develop and learn. If you discover an interest in a specific subject you have studied, upon successful completion of your first year, you could swap degrees with another course in your common first year (subject to meeting progression requirements). Common first year courses: Electrical and Electronic Engineering MEng/BEng (Hons) Electronics and Communication Engineering MEng/BEng (Hons) Year One Modules Engineering Mathematics Electrical and Electronic Engineering Principles Engineering Design Analogue and Digital Devices Electronic Systems in Action Introduction to Programming Year Two Year two builds on Year one learning and introduces new curriculum material. You will be introduced to the signal and systems module, which will prepare you for more advanced signal processing technique on the following year. More advanced electronics and system design topics will be covered in the electronic modules. This will include electronic system design, manufacturing, and testing. Electrical engineering and Analogue Control module will deal with classical engineering and control theory problems. Modules Analogue and Digital Systems Signals and System Analysis Embedded System Design & Development Manufacture of Electronic Systems Electrical Engineering Analogue control and Instrumentation Placement Year There’s no better way to find out what you love doing than trying it out for yourself, which is why a work placement* can often be beneficial. Work placements usually occur between your second and final year of study. They’re a great way to help you explore your potential career path and gain valuable work experience, whilst developing transferable skills for the future. If you choose to do a work placement year, you will pay a reduced tuition fee* of £1250. For more information, please go to the fees and funding section. During this time, you will receive guidance from your employer or partner institution, along with your assigned academic mentor who will ensure you have the support you need to complete your placement. Final Year This year aims to bring you to a level of professional capability equivalent to that of a graduate electrical and electronic engineer. As part of your Year three studies, you will undertake an individual project, which will entail undertaking research and design studies with the guidance of a supervisor to provide a set of engineering solutions. Other study subjects are as shown below and include an optional subject choice thus giving the opportunity to tailor your level three studies. Modules Digital Signal Processing and Applications Power Electronics and Renewable energy Individual Project Preparation Individual Project Realisation Digital Control and Instrumentation High Frequency Electronics Power Systems Additional Year In this additional year, more advanced topics related to electronics and communication engineering will be investigated which is beyond the scope of undergraduate study. More advanced technology and their applications such as robotics, wireless intelligent systems and image processing technique will be investigated. You will also undertake a group based industrial project relevant to the modern engineering problems. We regularly review our course content, to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
