Course summary

About the course

The electronics industry is global, and makes a huge contribution to the economy, it is a crucial subject in a wide range of industries as it's at the heart of everything from manufacturing processes, to the provision of services, green technologies, and logistics management. These industries are looking to the future of engineering, and this is where you could come in. This STEM course aims to give you the underpinning skills to be at the forefront of the future of engineering and open up lots of career options within the electronic engineering industry, where you could make a difference to the world we live in. By studying this course to MEng level you'll have the chance to gain the underpinning leadership skills to manage future developments.

The integrated Master’s MEng course has higher entry requirements than the BEng route. You’ll study for an extra year, with the aim of giving you a deeper understanding of your subject, and learning crucial management skills.

Both the MEng and the BEng are designed to give you a broad understanding of electronic systems, communications and control. We’ll look at:

  • Electronic systems
  • Communications and control
  • Digital and analogue systems
  • Embedded computer-based systems

On top of this you’ll have lots of opportunities to carry out practical work and you'll explore aspects such as, complex communications and digital technology. Plus in your third year, or fourth if you take a placement, you’ll be able to research a specialised area of your choice in depth.

You’ll be taught by professional engineers, and supported by our technicians many of whom have worked in the industry. If you find you have an interest in an area you may not have encountered before, the first year is common with the other courses in our Electronic Engineering suite. This means there is the opportunity for you to switch degrees to one of our other electronic engineering specialisms

The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. That means you could become a registered Chartered Engineer (CEng).

While you’re studying we’ll aim to give you as much real-world experience as possible. You’ll be able to choose a year-long placement, which could give you some great experience in the industry, and help build up your contacts too, plus your Final Year has been designed to help you gain the confidence you need to become a leader in this vital area. We’ll also give you the opportunity to take part in national competitions like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student, UAS and the Railway Challenge (or comparable design and build team projects).

Your career

Previous graduates from courses in this subject area have gone on to work in a variety of roles such as lead electrical engineer, senior electronic engineer, senior metrology engineer, applications design engineer and control, electrical and instrumentation graduate design engineer in organisations including GlaxoSmithKline, Dyson, Bentley Motors Ltd, Schneider Electric and Sellafield Ltd.

Additionally, you may gain skills that are transferable to other industries and may be able to pursue any career that requires a good honours degree. You could go on to further study and the University has many options available for postgraduate study and research which may interest you.
