Why choose this course Surrey is one of the UK's leading universities for Electrical and Electronic Engineering, with our courses ranked 3rd in the Guardian University Guide 2019. We also received 93 per cent for overall satisfaction in electronic and electrical engineering in the National Student Survey 2017, placing us in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction. Developed with input from industry, our BEng and MEng Computer and Internet Engineering courses provide integrated training in communications (both hardware and software), media and content delivery, and security and machine learning, developing the next generation of engineers for the internet age. What you will study Our BEng and MEng Computer and Internet Engineering courses are boosted by our leading-edge research in next generation mobile communications, audio-visual processing and engineering for health. Our aim is to develop engineers with a solid grounding in electronics with the specialist skills needed to work at the forefront of mobile and internet technology. After a year covering important concepts in programming and electronics, you’ll go on to study advanced modules in topics such as mobile communications, digital signal processing and artificial intelligence. You can apply to study for either a BEng or MEng (Masters of Engineering). The MEng builds on the BEng course with a masters year, and is a direct route to a masters qualification. Depending on your progress, you may have the option to switch to a BEng or MEng during your studies.
