Course summary

This course focuses on the engineering behind everyday technologies such as TV, radio, text messaging and air travel. Working on projects with other students and with industry partners is part of the curriculum. Another major advantage is that you’re not tied to the degree you register for. If you want to, you can switch to any other undergraduate course in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering after your second year.Spending a year in industry extends the course to four years. So it takes commitment. But the benefits are worth it. As well as gaining vital experience and improving your job prospects, you’ll be paid a salary during that year.We work closely with the biggest names in industry on game-changing research. So you can expect first-rate facilities, including state-of-the-art teaching space, labs and industry-standard equipment. Both the Rolls-Royce Centre for Advanced Machines and Drives, and the Sheffield-Siemens Wind Power Research Centre are based here in the department.The BEng is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Our graduates work for companies including Airbus UK, Arup, EDF Energy, EON, Ericsson, National Grid, Nokia, Rolls-Royce, Shell and Siemens.
