From electric vehicles to Raspberry Pi®, ultrasound machines to manufacturing robots, and washing machines to windfarms; every single day, electrical and electronics engineering enhances our lives enormously. Our BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronics Engineering with foundation year course aims to educate the engineers who will lead the next phase of the digital revolution. Advances in electrical and electronics engineering underpin the digital revolution that started in the 1950s and continues to the present day. Our BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronics Engineering with foundation year is designed to prepare you for a career in this world-changing industry. The foundation year is the first year of this degree, offering an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of engineering, electronics and mathematics. It’s designed to prepare you for degree level study. We offer ‘real world’ engineering knowledge and skills developed through a combination of theory and practical applications taught in a vibrant and supportive environment. This includes our range of highly specialised modules covering areas such as electromagnetism, embedded systems, digital signal processing, power electronics and renewable energy systems. Your professional development and training is encouraged through hands-on projects, live briefs, industrial visits and work placement opportunities. You can learn about cutting-edge and emerging technologies, such as Smart Grids that are transforming global electricity delivery systems. We also place significant emphasis on the application of electronic systems that can be embedded in other products that are not necessarily electronic, such as cars, medical devices and industrial systems. In this way we aim to prepare you for careers in growth areas of the industry.
