Course summary

Our foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence – with extensive support from our expert staff – before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. It could also be beneficial if you are planning a career change and want to get to grips with aspects of subjects which are new to you.This BSc degree has an optional year in industry and covers both electrical engineering – where electricity is used to transport and deliver energy – and electronic engineering – where electricity can be used to process, transmit and store information.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?This BSc course is closely related to our BEng course. You will refine your skills in configuring, implementing and managing equipment or systems which make use of the currently available technology. This could mean, for example, leading the installation of a new rail signalling system. Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering subject area is ranked 2nd in the UK for satisfaction with the course, and No.1 in the UK for student satisfaction with teaching and feedback (The Guardian University Guide 2021).IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?If you think you want to become an Incorporated Engineer, this electrical and electronic engineering degree is a good first step. Incorporated Engineers are practitioners in the world of engineering, using current technology to implement and manage demanding and fascinating projects. For many years, we have had accreditation through the Engineering Council which shows that our courses meet the educational requirement for IEng status and we have applied to renew this for the BSc (Hons). See the Engineering Council UK website for a full definition of the role.HOW YOU WILL LEARNYou will learn through lectures, tutorials, and laboratory work. You’ll carry out experiments in our specialist laboratories and have access to online materials 24/7.OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCESIf you choose to take the placement year in industry, you can really boost your career prospects. Many companies look for placement students and there’s plenty of support here to help you find and make the most of these opportunities.CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITYElectrical and electronic engineering graduates from Derby can be found developing embedded systems in cars, electrical power distribution systems, railway signalling systems or rolling stock enhancements. They are also managing major industrial processes, from breweries to assembly lines. However, with your advanced numeracy and problem-solving skills, you will have many other career options too: teaching, banking, accountancy, technical sales or management for example.
