Electrical engineers design and develop new technologies to generate and process power. The equipment they design is used to distribute electrical energy (including 'Smart Grid' technologies for renewable energy sources), and also supports many manufacturing industries. Electrical engineering technologies now enable hybrid and electric vehicles, trains, ships and even aircraft. Our course will give you the specialist electrical knowledge and skills that will help you be part of a more sustainable future. Through lab-based projects, working individually and in small teams, you'll learn essential problem solving and design skills. By bringing together your numerical, analytical and technical knowledge, you will be confident in creating engineering solutions that industry are looking for. 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. This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
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. In your second year, you will continue to improve your understanding of electrical engineering, and your design skills will be developed through a variety of laboratory-based subjects. In your third year, you can choose from a range of specialist topics to follow a wide path, or focus on specific technologies. In your final year you will study state-of-the-art technologies and you will undertake an individual research project. Through lectures, group study and tutorials combined with coursework and self-study, you may spend over 40 hours a week on your studies.
