Course summary

Electronic engineering is transforming our world.

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, a researcher or as a manager. You'll start with fundamental principles of electronic engineering, and learn more advanced concepts, later choosing from a range of specialist option modules.

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 always supported 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. Our courses have been continually accredited for 25 years.

Work in industry for a year

Your year in industry will help you gain confidence and skills and give you the opportunity to network. It will help you to become an employment-ready, motivated graduate.

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. Recent employers have included Jaguar Land Rover, IBM, Qinetiq, ARM, BBC, BT and Network Rail.
