In a world filled with smart devices to a global need to create green energy, our course provides a detailed insight into the computing systems and software needed to advance all technology. A lot of the things you learn will be done in labs either working individually and through group projects. You'll study subjects such as analogue and digital electronics, circuits and systems, computing, communications and the application of electrical energy. You will spend year three in industry. You can apply for placements available to students on your course or can agree your own placement with an appropriate company. During your industrial year, you remain fully registered with the university, with regular meetings with your tutor. All our electrical and electronic courses have the same content in year one and two so by year three, you can choose the topics that interest you. As a BEng graduate, there are many options available to you. You can choose to register with the Engineering Council as an Incorporated Engineer or progress to Chartered Engineer status. Our course will give you with the required engineering expertise for either a career in industry or in a variety of other professions.
All students follow a common programme in year one and you will study topics such as engineering mathematics, power and energy and information and systems. In year two, you will develop your design skills through a variety of lab based subjects. The industrial placement is completed in your third year and in your final year you will undertake an individual project and study state-of-the-the-art technologies. In many cases this project contributes to the major industrially related programmes undertaken by research groups within the department.
