Our MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree can also be taken with an additional year in industry. The year in industry is taken after Year 2 or Year 3 and is assessed by academics and industry experts. This can be a great way to give you a competitive edge among graduate recruiters by showing you can relate your academic skills and knowledge to contemporary industrial practice. This five-year MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree with industrial studies will enable you to gain strong theoretical and practical skills in electrical and electronic engineering. This programme has been specifically designed to allow you to develop the knowledge and application required for a wide range of high quality professional engineering careers in business, engineering, research and development, and industry. During your third and fourth years, you will have the opportunity to focus your knowledge by selecting options from an extensive range of specialist technical modules and you will participate in a group project that will aim to solve a real industry problem. This project will test and further develop your technical skills but also will develop your management skills as you will work in a team that needs to deliver a solution to a real engineering problem. Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Southampton is ranked first in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2022). We have an unrivalled reputation for our facilities, and have recently invested £8m in our teaching labs.
