Course summary

Electronic and electrical engineering impacts almost every aspect of our lives – including renewables, electricity generation, transmission and distribution, transport, control, computation, communication and satellite communication. This BEng (Hons) Electronic and Electrical Engineering degree exposes you to a broad range of topics in the large and rapidly growing fields of Electronics, Photonics and Electrical Engineering. This course takes a practical approach to learning, with a syllabus designed in partnership with local businesses to ensure you are ready for the industry when you graduate. You will complete multiple design-build-test challenges during your degree which test your theoretical engineering understanding and practical skills. These challenges start with a design brief, to which you must apply the Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) engineering cycle. The University of Chichester is a member of the CDIO worldwide initiative alongside other leading universities. The unique CDIO (Conceive – Design – Implement – Operate) approach means our courses are designed to be practical and lab-focused from the beginning. On this course you will: Complete yearly design-build challenges. Study modules specific to electronic and electrical engineering. Learn to apply your knowledge, techniques and skills in a practical environment. Complete workshops, seminars and practical lab based modules. Gain a strong foundation in scientific principles and mathematics. Have the opportunity to develop practical expertise alongside local businesses.


Year One: In your first year, you will explore the key fundamentals of electronic and electrical engineering, as well as computer aided engineering, mathematical principles, and mechanical applications. Year Two: Your second year builds on your previous learning to explore more specialised elements of electronic and electrical engineering including power systems, electronic machines, and digital design. Year Three: In your third year, you will work as part of group to undertake a final engineering project that will act as a culmination of your studies. Alongside this, you will explore industrially-relevant elements such as renewability and sustainability, as well as understand basic business concepts within a engineering contexts.
