At Southampton our Electronic Engineering graduates have a world-leading reputation for creative solutions based on cutting-edge knowledge and state-of-the-art technical skills.
Our four-year Electronic Engineering with Computer Systems degree builds upon the BEng Electronic Engineering degree and has been specifically designed to allow you to develop the skills, knowledge, and application required for a wide range of professional engineering careers. This programme will allow you to focus your knowledge by selecting options from an extensive range of specialist technical modules including computer networks, advanced computer architecture, applied parallel and concurrent programming and computational modelling. In your third and fourth years you will have the opportunity to select 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 are Ranked number 6 in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2020) and we are first in the UK for volume and quality of our electrical and electronic engineering research (REF 2014). We have an unrivalled reputation for our facilities, and have recently invested £8m in our teaching labs. We also have a £100m state-of-the-art interdisciplinary clean room complex and high-voltage laboratory.
Our renowned teaching staff prepare our students to work in a wide variety of areas and fields; we have strong relationships with employers, and our graduates are particularly in demand for their understanding of organisations and their practical abilities in the workplace. We have our own Careers Hub website, run an annual careers fair and have a dedicated startup incubator, Future Worlds, to support student enterprise. Our MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and we are members of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UK-ESF) and IET Power Academy
