Course summary

Electronic engineers are pushing boundaries in fields from computing to communication, from healthcare to environmental monitoring. Ever-increasing demands for innovation require graduates who are knowledgeable, highly-skilled, professional and adept at communication and project management: graduates who are equipped to design the next generation of electronics.

This course will enable you to function with confidence in the challenging world of electronics, as a designer, in research or as a manager. You'll learn fundamental principles and study advanced concepts.

Our courses are very flexible, and offer you the opportunity to either become a specialist or generalist by choosing your own route through your degree. You'll be fully supported at all times by staff who are enthusiastic about their subjects and willing to help you.

Accreditation

This course is fully accredited by the IET and counts towards the training requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Teaching and assessment

You’ll study and learn with academics who are active researchers, experts in their field and have a passion for their subjects. Our approach to teaching will provide you with the knowledge, opportunities, and support you need to grow and succeed in a global workplace.

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. You'll encounter all of them during your course, but the exact balance will depend on the modules you choose:

  • Closed-book exams
  • Short technical reports
  • Electronic portfolios, including programming exercises, video reports or blogs
  • Presentations and demonstrations
  • Major technical reports

You'll receive written feedback on work you hand in to help you understand your grade and develop your skills. For your final-year individual project you'll produce a written report, have a viva (a presentation and question/answer session) and also show your project on our demo day, which our external advisory board attend.

Careers and skills

The growth of the electronics industry means demand for new engineers is always high. We have the highest proportion of graduates finding employment within one year of finishing their studies (UK engineering and technology graduates LEO data set, June 2017). Our students enter a wide range of jobs, not just in electronic 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.
