Course summary

Course overview

Electrical engineers design and develop new technologies to generate and process power. The equipment they design is used in many industries; building, transportation, manufacturing, construction and power generation.

Electronic engineers design, develop, test, and oversee the creation of anything from drones and electric cars to the technology in smartphones, sat navs and systems in hospitals.

All our electrical and electronic courses have the same content in year one and two so by year three, you can choose the topics that interest you. A lot of the things you learn will be done in labs working individually and in group projects.

During year two, you will have a unique opportunity to see your academic subject from a different perspective by studying abroad in China or Malaysia. As well as starting an international network of contacts, you will discover new strengths and abilities - helping to enhance your future employment prospects. The curriculum is exactly the same as the UK and all teaching is in English.

Study abroad

You will receive academic tutor support from the host campus as well as support from the International Office on issues of accommodation and welfare. Additional support from academics at Nottingham is also available.

Engineering programmes and content of study are the same across our international campuses but there may be minor differences in the number of elective modules offered by some.

Post study abroad: students are supported to enable them to fully integrate back into their studies including co-ordinating module choices and projects as appropriate for their programme.
