Course summary

This is a six year degree taught at our Hope Park campus. The Foundation Year aims to develop your skills so that after a year, you will be equipped with the necessary skills needed for studying the full MEng Hons degree programme. Electronic and Computer Engineering is an exciting and rapidly developing area that is increasingly affecting every aspect of our lives. Many everyday objects with which we interact, such as mobile phones, tablets and games consoles, contain electronics that have to be designed by engineers. Our degree will prepare you for a career in electronic systems design and software development. This six year degree includes a compulsory one year placement in industry. You will learn the fundamentals of the subject, including analogue and digital electronics, programming, software development and more specialised topics such as embedded systems, mobile devices and robotics. The degree has a good balance of academic theory and practical ‘hands-on’ project work. You will work in new, purpose-built laboratories, using the very latest equipment. Whilst the degree is challenging, you will be offered close academic support by staff who are experts in their field. Electronic and computer engineering has a wide-reaching social impact posing many ethical questions, and these issues are examined at various points during the degree.
