This course is professionally accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). As well as your main Imperial degree, you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the City and Guilds of London Institute (ACGI) on completion of this course. Electrical and electronic engineers are at the forefront of the challenge to use technology to improve the performance of electronic equipment in terms of speed, cost and sustainability; to improve power distribution and control for a robust and sustainable future energy network; and to improve communication in different aspects of life. It’s a discipline which impacts on almost every area of our lives, including communications, commerce, entertainment, manufacturing, healthcare, transport, energy and the environment. This degree prepares future engineering leaders to manage the business of engineering through a series of modules taught by Imperial College Business School. The knowledge and skills you gain will form part of the foundation for your future career, which could be working in a large organisation or even starting up your own company. This course is also a popular route into graduate positions in the finance sector; and if you aspire to a management role in a technical environment, this degree provides the best of both worlds. Years one and two follow a core programme covering the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering in areas such as analogue and digital electronics, communication and control, alongside mathematics and computing modules. You will learn to analyse and optimise systems by modelling them. You will also focus on programming, with the chance to use the latest computing technologies. Over your third and fourth year you will take six business modules in addition to a range of specialist technical modules. The business modules are delivered by Imperial College Business School, which is triple-accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB, and will equip you with an understanding of the management of the operating environment of business organisations. MEng students have the option to complete a six-month industrial placement, gaining valuable skills and experience by solving real engineering problems. Alternatively, you can take part in a three-month group project, acting as technical consultants to a brief provided by an industrial client. This involves specifying and designing, implementing and testing a pre-production prototype of a new product or technical solution. The fourth and final year of the integrated Master's course offers a wide choice of advanced modules based on state-of-the-art research carried out in the Department. Studying to this level means that graduates require fewer years of work experience to become a Chartered Engineer (see Professional accreditation). The most important part of your final year is the individual project. It allows you to implement the technical information assimilated over the course of your degree, and develop novel approaches to present-day problems. Engineers are innovators and problem solvers – you need practical skills, planning, time management and the ability to work as part of a team. You'll start developing your engineering skills through a structured programme of project work from your first year, with a group project to establish the basics of the engineering design process. Group projects in your second and third year let you investigate the technical, social and financial aspects of products and services, and how to design, build and test them. You will also have weekly classes in the electrical and computer laboratories to gain valuable practical experience.
