Electrical engineering is essential to the modern world, encompassing everything from energy and automation through to communications and transport. The MEng (Hons) Electrical Engineering programme is designed to equip students with the skills to succeed as the engineers of the future. Throughout the course, there are opportunities to engage in hands-on projects and benefit from learning in an environment where electrical engineering research is being conducted by our academics. Strong links exist between our Mechanical and Electrical degrees, aiming to ensure graduates gain an excellent cross-disciplinary focus and an excellent understanding of engineering. Our ground-breaking collaboration with Siemens has won prestigious Lord Stafford and Times Higher Education awards.
The first and second year of the programme offers a foundation in engineering theory and practice. Students can develop fundamental knowledge in areas such as robotics, semiconductor device physics, electrical technology, electromagnetism, engineering mathematics and numerical computation. Teaching includes important technical and workshop skills. After the first year, students can specialise in electrical and electronic engineering. At each stage, students have opportunities to practise and develop their engineering skills on real-life problems through project work. The MEng involves a fourth year of Master’s-level study, which includes modules such as advanced system design and microwave communications. Students can also learn about project management, teamwork and leadership, and complete an extended group project. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.
