Designed in close consultation with industry, this specialist degree offers a strong foundation in electrical and electronic engineering to address the increasing demand for qualified engineers in this versatile field. Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this course puts you at the forefront of specialist areas of electrical and electronic engineering and will help you master a skillset that meets industry needs. You will study a range of specialist modules, including Electronic Circuits and Systems, Embedded Application Design and Interfacing, and Electrical Transmission and Distribution. Whether you opt for the three-year BEng (Hons) programme or the four-year integrated master's MEng, our experienced staff will further your understanding of electrical and electronic engineering principles, and will also develop your design, research and project management skills. Our dedicated facilities are divided into several specialised areas each featuring experimental equipment, such as: general electronics and assembly, digital electronics and microprocessor engineering supported by state-of-the-art measurement devices and workstations, power electronics, control systems and communications engineering, and Smart Grid. Our graduates work at national and multinational companies, including Airbus UK and Cummins UK, pursuing careers in electronic product design, radio frequency design and mobile communications, signal processing, control and power electronics, electronic control systems, telecommunications, military and aeronautical electronics. Key features:
- Accreditation from the Institute of Engineering and Technology will help you start your journey towards Chartered Engineer status.
- Through block teaching, you will focus on one module at a time instead of several at once. This means that you will be able to focus closely on each module and absorb your learning material in more depth, whilst working more closely with your tutors and course mates.
- Our specialist laboratories, such as the Rohde & Schwarz embedded systems lab, National Instrument Control and Communication labs, hi-tech Smart Grid and Sustainable Energy Lab equipped with Smart Grid Trainer kits, and industry-standard software packages mean you will develop your skills and knowledge in facilities typically used in the engineering sector.
- Enhance your practical and professional skills with an optional placement year. Engineering students have undertaken placements at companies including Airbus UK, Caterpillar, Network Rail and the Science and Technology Facilities Council.
- Enrich your studies and expand your cultural horizons with DMU Global, our international experience programme. Previous students have visited automotive plants in Prague and explored skyscraper engineering in New York.
- Develop your skills and meet like-minded students by joining DMU’s Electronics Club. Previous projects include capturing footage from the edge of space using a hot air balloon carrying GPS tracking, environmental monitoring equipment, a camera and data loggers.
