Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Course summary

Electrical and electronic engineers are at the forefront of the challenges to connect our world, to design more efficient and affordable technology, and to help us live healthily and sustainably. Our programmes are led by our research strengths, with projects and coursework drawn from our latest research, and focused on inspiring and supporting tomorrow’s industry-ready, creative engineers. You’ll choose a route that fits your developing interests and career plans, with pathways that include advanced software and computer systems skills, business studies or a year abroad. Students studying Electrical Engineering share a common first year. Labs and problem-solving classes are designed to equip you with a solid theoretical base and practical hardware and software engineering skills. Year two follows a core programme tailored to your chosen route, completing the fundamentals in analogue and digital electronics, power electronics, communications and control, alongside a strong focus on mathematics and computing. In your third year, you’ll select from a choice of focused modules, so you can take a wide-ranging programme of study, or to concentrate your expertise in a particular field. You’ll also have the option to take a six-month industrial placement and experience engineering in action, or to be part of a team project acting as consultants on a design challenge proposed by an industrial client. This involves creating a pre-production prototype of an innovative product or technical solution. The final year of the MEng course offers an extensive range of advanced specialist modules inspired by the very latest research. You’ll apply your knowledge and skills to increasingly ambitious project work throughout the course, ultimately showcasing your imagination, originality and independent engineering expertise in a substantial final year project of your choice. For an extra international perspective, you can choose to spend your fourth year at one of our partner universities around the world. Professional accreditation
