Course summary

Electronic engineers design, develop, test, and oversee the creation of anything from drones and electric cars to the technology in smartphones, sat navs and systems in hospitals. Our course offers you many different ways to develop your understanding of electronics. You'll work on lab-based projects, work individually and in small teams. You'll learn to project manage and bring your technical knowledge to problem solve different situations. You will spend year three in industry. You can apply for placements available to students on your course or can agree your own placement with an appropriate company. During your industrial year, you remain fully registered with the University, with regular meetings with your tutor. With the ever-changing developments in technology, you will graduate with the confidence to create, understand and develop electrical control systems of the future. All our electrical and electronic courses have the same content in year one and two so by year three, you can choose to specialise in the topics that interest you. Our five-year MEng course is the preferred route to achieving Chartered Engineer status. It will give you a deeper understanding of the role of electrical engineering compared to our BEng course.

Modules

All students follow a common programme in year one and you will study topics such as computer engineering, engineering mathematics, power and energy and information and systems. In year two, you will develop your design skills through a variety of lab based subjects. Modules include electrical energy conditioning and control, electronic processing and communications and practical engineering design solutions. The industrial placement is completed in your third year. Year four core topics include advanced engineering mathematics, analogue electronics and integrated circuits and systems, as well as a range of optional modules. In your final year you will undertake an individual project and study state-of-the-the-art technologies. In many cases this project contributes to the major industrially related programmes undertaken by research groups within the department.
