Electrical and electronic engineers design, develop, test and oversee new technologies. This can be to generate and process power as well as create of anything from drones and electric cars to the technology in smartphones, sat navs and systems in hospitals. Our course will give you the specialist knowledge and skills that will help you be part of a more sustainable future. Through lab-based projects, working individually and in small teams, you'll bring together your numerical, analytical and technical knowledge to problem solve different situations. You will spend year three in industry. You can apply for placements available to students on your course or can agree your own placement with an appropriate company. During your industrial year, you remain fully registered with the University, with regular meetings with your tutor. All our electrical and electronic courses have the same content in year one and two so by year three, you can choose to specialise in the topics that interest you. As a BEng graduate, there are many options available to you. You can choose to register with the Engineering Council as an Incorporated Engineer or progress to Chartered Engineer status. Our course will give you with the required engineering expertise for either a career in industry or in a variety of other professions.
In your first year, you will gain an understanding of the principles and practices on which all specialisms within electrical and electronic engineering are founded. Practical and fault-finding skills are developed through laboratory and project work. In your second year, you will continue to improve your understanding of electrical and electronic engineering, and your design skills will be developed through a variety of laboratory-based subjects. The industrial placement is completed in your third year. In your final year you will study state-of-the-art technologies and you will undertake an individual research project.
