Course summary

About the course

Our Master of Engineering (MEng) degree lets you specialise your degree with a range of options and provides you with the educational requirements needed to become a Chartered Engineer. The placement year gives you the chance to get real work experience for a year in industry, whilst still being supported by the department at Sussex.

From renewable energies, autonomous cars, robotics and mobile communication to advances in medicine, electrical and electronic engineering underpins all facets of our daily lives. Our world class research in sensors, flexible electronics, medical imaging, 5G communications and space systems informs our degrees to give you the best start in your career.

You’ll study in our £12-million Future Technologies Labs, which provides a new space for building robots, programming embedded systems and digital signal processors, as well as state-of-the-art computer design and modelling suites. You will use our industry sponsored electronics laboratories, electrical drive systems, and control engineering laboratories and could be part of the Formula Student team.

As you progress, you’ll focus on electrical or electronic engineering. You'll get specialist training in applications ranging from semiconductor devices to electric motors for future green transport. Dedicated academic advisors will support you during you time at Sussex, and you will be welcomed into our active, student-run engineering societies.
