Develop essential engineering knowledge and skills to prepare you for a successful career in a fast-moving industry. All our engineering courses are in line with the new Engineering Council requirements (AHEP 4.0). Electronic and electrical engineers are at the forefront of the challenge to connect our world - From designing and building more efficient and affordable technology, to providing a more robust and green energy network, and to help us live better, healthier, smarter and more sustainably. It’s a discipline which impacts on almost every area of our lives, including communications, commerce, entertainment, manufacturing, healthcare, transport, energy and the environment. With an emphasis on Industry 4.0 concepts, you'll learn about the latest developments and techniques in a variety of cutting-edge areas of engineering, such as Digital Signal Processing (DSP), robotics, AI, internet of things (IoT), power electronics, and sustainable technologies, so you'll graduate well-prepared to enter the workplace. From day one, you'll take a systematic, hands-on approach to real-life engineering challenges alongside your peers, developing your leadership, project management, problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, teamworking and presentation skills. These skills are in high demand among employers and you'll use them throughout your career. As an engineering student at ARU, you’ll work in our specialist labs and carry out four phases of an engineering project: design, analyse, build and test. Through this hands-on, project-based approach, you’ll develop the technical skills and associated knowledge you need to work in the engineering sector, with an emphasis on embedded systems and remotely controlled wireless systems. You’ll also learn about broader factors that all engineers have to consider, including the economic, social and environmental impact of your work. We’ve placed employability at the heart of our course, by integrating university learning with real-world projects. As a graduate, you’ll be confident about using your problem-solving skills to inspire change and innovation. Due to our new project-based curriculum, we've arranged for the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) to visit our campus, with a view to re-accrediting this course. Accreditation means it's been approved by a professional body as meeting their level of requirements.
