Electronics is essential to the modern world of instant global communication. Our BEng Electronic Engineering examines modern electronic engineering with an emphasis on electronic systems rather than electronic devices and is aimed at those who wish to become electronic systems designers. You study computer software and processors, as well as traditional topics such as circuit design (analogue and digital), audio and video, signal processing and data communications. You can become a student member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers and become a Member of the IET (MIEE) when you graduate, the basis for chartered engineer status.
