University of Derby has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This BEng degree has an optional year in industry and covers both electrical engineering – where electricity is used to transport and deliver energy – and electronic engineering – where electricity can be used to process, transmit and store information. WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE? This BEng covers deeper scientific study and more analytical work than the BSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering, which we also offer. It’s a faster route towards Chartered Engineer status. We have a good graduate employment rate – over 91% find graduate-level jobs* – and you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, thanks to our partnership with CERN.
