Course Summary

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Expand your expertise with the technical depth and project work experience you need to progress further in an electronic engineering career on our MEng degree programme. The extra year’s study leads to a deeper understanding of the subject and its real-world application. You’ll get the chance to work on a wider range of projects, including group work that could involve our professional partners and collaborators - BAE Systems, NASA, the NHS and the Northwest Aerospace Alliance, among others. And just as importantly, you’ll develop a range of transferable skills, like teamwork, decision-making, delegation, identifying and solving problems, and communication - all skills employers prize.Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever, which means the career options for you are varied. You could find yourself working in high value manufacturing - perhaps aerospace or the automotive industry - or in the Ministry of Defence, or in research and development. Careers in digital communications, consumer electronics, security and surveillance, as well as banking and commerce, are also open to graduates.
