Course summary

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. 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. 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 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.
