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 healthy and sustainably. Our department has a strong culture of enterprise, and our researchers and alumni are recognised for their commercially successful innovations. This degree will give you an insight into engineering the commercial world, with a programme of business modules combined with technical subjects. Study time is split 50:50 between technical and business modules in years three and four. You’ll study topics such as accounting, corporate finance and economics, delivered by Imperial College Business School. Your first and second year includes labs and problem-solving classes designed to equip you with a solid theoretical base covering analogue and digital electronics, power electronics, communications and control, alongside a strong focus on mathematics and computing, and practical hardware and software engineering skills. In your third year, you’ll select from a number of focused technical modules alongside your Business programme, so you can choose to 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, together with your business modules. 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. Professional accreditation This course is professionally accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. With this BEng degree, you’ll fully meet the academic requirement for professional registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and partially meet the academic requirement for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). BEng graduates will need to undertake further study after graduating to demonstrate that their knowledge is at Master's degree level. With a professionally accredited degree, you’ll be able to demonstrate to employers that you have achieved an industry-recognised standard of competency. Professional accreditation also provides international recognition of your qualifications, which you can use to launch a career abroad. Becoming a Chartered Engineer can further enhance your career prospects and earning potential. It demonstrates your competencies and commitment to lifelong learning – providing you with recognition in your field and greater influence and opportunities. In addition to your degree, you’ll receive the Associateship of the City and Guilds of London Institute (ACGI) upon completion of this course. This associateship is awarded by one of our historic constituent Colleges.
