Course summary

This course gives you a sound technological understanding in the field of electrical and electronic engineering. With access to modern engineering tools and a hi-tech laboratory environment, you’ll learn the latest skills and knowledge in digital signal processing, microelectronic and VLSI (very-large-scale integration) design practice, robotics and neural networks, power systems applications, and advanced power conversion and control application trends. You’ll also have the exciting opportunity to study abroad or work in industry for a year, boosting your CV and employment prospects.

Why choose this course?

  • This BEng Honours in Electrical and Electronic Engineering will give you a sound technological background in the field of electrical and electronic engineering.
  • You will have access to modern engineering tools which will give you the advantage of experiencing a hi-tech laboratory environment.
  • Students from the School of Engineering and Technology have previously completed work placement years at companies including: Airbus Space and Defence, Bosch Thermotechnology, and Microsoft
  • Recent Electrical Engineering graduates have gone on to work at organisations including: Vodafone, Mitsubishi Electric and Stansted Airport.

This course is designed to enable you to study a range of topics similar to those of the more specific courses but in a more flexible way, allowing you to choose a more diverse individual course. Many of our students have an interest in one or more of the specialist areas and wish to combine them. This study route allows you to do that.

Final Year students benefit from the opportunity to study modules such as applications of electronics in subjects such as electrical and electronic power control, digital signal processing, micro-electronics, robotics and the option of telecommunication systems or micro-engineering and micro-technology. The aim is to allow you to keep your expertise broad if you wish, allowing you to specialise later.

This course starts with common study areas to give you a sound understanding of basic electrical and electronic engineering principles. Unlike the other courses, it maintains this breadth in your study of electrical and electronic engineering in the Final Year.
