This three-year BEng Aerospace Electronic Engineering degree will enable you to gain the skills fundamental to modern aerospace electronic systems, both theoretical and practical. The course has been specifically designed to focus on electronics for aerospace and spacecraft systems. Key areas of study include electronic circuits and systems, flight mechanics and aerospace systems, radar techniques and applications, guidance, navigation and control, space systems engineering, digital systems and microprocessors, programming and computer engineering, devices and solid state electronics and mathematics. You will have the opportunity to design, simulate and build a unique aerospace electronic system as part of your third year individual project, and will collaborate with an academic working at the cutting-edge of research to develop analytical and innovative solutions to engineering problems. Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Southampton are ranked first in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2022). We have an unrivalled reputation for our facilities, and have recently invested £8m in our student facilities for computer science and electrical and electronic engineering. You’ll be prepared to work in a wide variety of areas and fields; we have strong relationships with employers, and our graduates are particularly in demand for their understanding of organisations and their practical abilities in the workplace. Our dedicated careers hub run an annual careers fair and have a dedicated startup incubator, Future Worlds, to support student enterprise. Our BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and we are members of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UK-ESF) and IET Power Academy.
This three-year BEng programme has been designed to maximise student choice by allowing you to tailor the degree structure to suit your own interests. During the first two years you will undertake a series of core modules, for example electronic circuits and systems, flight mechanics and aerospace systems, radar techniques and applications, digital systems and microprocessors, programming and computer engineering, devices and solid state electronics and mathematics. In your third year you can choose from a wide range of optional modules that reflect the specialist areas of electronic engineering that will take you to the leading edge of technology sought by industry. You will also work on an individual project with one of our research groups which will allow you to work at the frontier of knowledge.
