Switch on your career in electrical and electronic engineering at The University of Manchester. We're home to one of the largest departments dedicated to the subject in the UK, have fantastic links with industry, and have taught the discipline here since 1905. More than 100 years later, we continue to help solve the day's biggest energy problems. The use of electricity, for example, is fundamental to modern life. Without a secure supply, society in its current form would collapse. Consequently, the importance of efficient and sustainable generation, secure distribution, and intelligent user devices cannot be overstated. This will be a lifetime challenge facing the next generation - and electrical and electronic engineers have a vital role to play.. Spending a year in industry will not only develop your business, team working and transferable skills - all highly sought-after by employers - it will also highlight the broad range of careers on offer to you and guide your choice of subject options. You'll place yourself in a great position to move your career forward. In the final year you will complete a team project directly funded by industry or inspired by industrial needs. Past projects have included developing an instrumented training wheelchair for para-athletes, creating a new core infrastructure for a robot orchestrahaptic glove for remote handling, and developing a cyber-secure electricity management system in smart cities.
