Course summary

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. When you graduate from this course, your combined knowledge of hardware and software engineering means you will enjoy a rewarding career in whatever industry you choose. 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. Our four-year MEng course is the preferred route to achieving Chartered Engineer status. It will give you a deeper understanding of the role of electrical engineering compared to our BEng course. This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Modules

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. In your second year, you will continue to improve your understanding of electronic and computer engineering, and your design skills will be developed through a variety of laboratory-based subjects. In your third year, you can choose from a range of specialist topics to follow a wide path, or focus on specific technologies. In your final year you will study state-of-the-art technologies and you will undertake an individual research project. In many cases, this project contributes to the major industrially related programmes undertaken by research groups within the department. Through lectures, group study and tutorials combined with coursework and self-study, you may spend over 40 hours a week on your studies.
