Electrical and electronic engineers play an important role in not only ensuring devices are safe to use now, but also on the forefront of developing new technologies for the future. Our modules mirror the real-life practical applications of this knowledge such as control engineering, medical applications and telecommunications. You’ll also have the opportunity to specialise in specific pathways of electronic and computer systems engineering, and electrical power engineering. You’ll graduate with the specialist skills and a knowledge base that will set you up for success in an electrical engineering career.
