Course summary

From transport to communications to commerce, electronics have revolutionised industries. Gain the knowledge and skills ready to shape the next generation of ideas with a BEng (Hons) Electronic Engineering degree at Salford. The role of an electronic engineer is an exciting one, with diverse roles ranging from developing technical business solutions, to creating new consumer tech. Delivered over three years, our Electronic Engineering degree draws from computing and engineering spectrums to provide you with capabilities needed by industries throughout the world. Featuring project work aimed at developing practical and research based skills, course modules will help you to explore analogue and digital electronics, mathematics, computer fundamentals and computer networking. We’ll also broaden your knowledge of applied mathematics to electronics systems, telecommunications, digital systems design and digital signal processing. The Foundation Year aims to develop your understanding of the key computing subjects to meet the prerequisites for study on the associated degree programme. You will cover essential mathematics and engineering, the basics of programming, as well as looking at the detailed operation of computer systems. Key areas of focus also include effective communication and study skills. On successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress on to year one of the BEng (Hons) Electronic Engineering degree for the remainder three years of your course. Teaching and learning is complemented by the world-class facilities, including our CISCO-based networking laboratories at our MedaCityUK campus, and dedicated electronics and software simulation laboratories at our Peel Park campus. With our envious location, minutes from central Manchester, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved in the region’s thriving tech community. Our new home for engineering In Autumn 2022, we open our new £65 million hub for science, engineering and the environment - and our new home for engineering. Sustainability-designed and 100% electric powered, the building offers unrivalled teaching, learning and research facilities and provides exciting new spaces for industry collaboration. Features
