Course summary

The generation and use of electricity are fundamental to modern life.

The increased use of electrified transportation, data centres and IT devices leads to ever increasing reliance on power electronics supported technologies. Electrical and Electronic Engineers have a vital role in addressing this challenge.

Master the principles, circuits, systems and solutions at the intersection of these exciting disciplines, covering areas such as power electronics and motor drives, renewable energies, energy generation and distribution, smart grids and energy management.

You'll complete individual and group project work at every stage of your degree course to develop practical, organisational, management and business skills. As you progress, you'll also have the freedom to specialise in an area that interests you.

You'll graduate with the abilities and approaches you will need to operate with confidence – as a researcher, expert designer or technical manager – in the challenging world of electrical engineering.

Assessment and feedback

Your assignments will be designed not just to test you but for you to creatively apply what you've learnt, and to stretch you to supply novel solutions. We use a variety of assessment styles, including exams, coursework and practical engineering tasks.

Careers and skills

The growth of the electrical and electronics industry means demand for new engineers is always high. Our students enter a wide range of jobs, not just in engineering, but in a variety of related fields such as software programming and hardware development.

For those wishing to take different career paths, the transferable skills you'll develop are highly valuable. Mathematics, programming, team working, and technical management are sought after in a huge range of sectors, from media to financial services. Recent employers have included Jaguar Land Rover, Gooee, Sky, ARM, BBC, BT and Network Rail.
