In a world filled with smart devices to a global need to create green energy, our course provides a detailed insight into the computing systems and software needed to advance all technology. A lot of the things you learn will be done in labs either working individually and through group projects. You'll study subjects such as analogue and digital electronics, circuits and systems, computing, communications and the application of electrical energy. You will spend year four 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. When you graduate from this course, your combined knowledge of hardware and software engineering means you will enjoy a rewarding career in whatever industry you choose. All our electrical and electronic courses have the same content in year one and two so by year three, you can choose 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.
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 machines, digital communications and practical engineering design solutions. Year three core topics include advanced engineering mathematics, analogue electronics and integrated circuits and systems, as well as a range of optional modules. The industrial placement is completed in your fourth year. 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.
