Course summary

**Overview**Electronic engineering powers the world we live in today. From games consoles, smartphones and fitness trackers to life-saving medical systems, cyber security and self-driving cars.On this course, you’ll learn to design, develop and manufacture electronic equipment and devices that could have a significant impact on the world. Develop your knowledge of the theory and design of electronics while putting theory into practice in our extensive facilities.Electronic technology evolves rapidly. Be part of the future on a course that opens doors to a career as a professional electronics engineer.**BEng or MEng?**You can study this course as a 3-year Bachelor's degree (BEng) or a 4-year integrated Master's degree (MEng).When you finish the BEng course successfully, you'll meet the educational requirements for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status. Once you've met the work experience requirements for IEng status, you can progress to Chartered Engineer status (CEng) with further study and experience.The MEng allows you to achieve a Master’s level degree with just one extra year of undergraduate study. When you finish the MEng course successfully, you'll meet the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status (CEng).IEng and CEng status demonstrate your expertise and can include benefits such as improved career prospects and earning potential.**Course highlights**- Use the latest equipment for analysing and measuring electronics, including logic analysers, spectrum analysers, digital scopes and multi-function generators- Work with analogue and digital components such as microprocessors, microcontrollers and programmable devices- Use experimental kits, such as ServoSET servo-mechanism (which helps you learn how to stabilise systems) and superheterodyne radio receivers (which help you understand the principles of radio receiver operation)- Get student membership of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, at no cost to you – giving you access to practical, technical and career-related resources, and opportunities to build links with prospective employers- Work on a multidisciplinary group project to get the practical experience sought by employers when you choose the 4-year MEng option**Careers and opportunities**The demand for innovation in medical technology devices, and consumer electronics such as mobile phones and televisions is always increasing. In fact, all engineering roles are listed in the UK Government’s 'skills shortage list' – which means engineers are currently in high demand.So not surprisingly, 90% of our BEng graduates and 95% of our MEng graduates are in work or further study after completing their course.With electronic engineering professionals in high demand, graduates of our MEng course are earning £39,500 a year on average, 5 years after graduation.Our graduates have worked for companies such as:- Thales- QinetiQ- Barnbrook Systems- Royal Navy- Network Rail- Flylogix- NXP SemiconductorsOur graduates now work in roles including:- communications and information systems engineer- digital design engineer- electronic design engineer- graduate signalling and telecoms engineer- hardware design engineer- service application consultantOther graduates have continued their studies at postgraduate level or set up successful businesses with help and support from the University.**Placement opportunities**After your second year, you can do an optional work placement year to get valuable longer-term work experience in the industry.A placement year gives you an advantage over other graduates who may understand theory but won't have the experience of applying their learning to a working environment. We’ll help you secure a work placement that fits your aspirations, and you’ll get mentoring and support throughout the
