Course summary

Summary

Electronics engineers are the brains behind the iPad, the mobile phone and GPS devices - in fact, any innovative piece of technology you can think of.

Every device with an electrical current running through it has been designed, built and manufactured by electronics engineers. They work closely with product designers, manufacturers and consumer experts to develop ideas for new products - it is the job of the electronic engineer to make sure they work.

Electronic engineering graduates are highly employable and can find work in areas such as electronics, automotive, IT, telecoms, manufacturing, utilities and construction.

The university has worked closely with employers to develop this MEng Hons course to prepare students for a wide range of industrial electronic roles.

Expanding on the knowledge gained in the first four years (three years study plus a one year industrial placement), this course will allow you to choose specialist subjects in the fifth year. This will let you extend your knowledge in an area of interest to you, or an area which will provide further career opportunities.

Using a connected programme of study which allows you to build on the knowledge gained in each semester, this degree will prepare you to become a well-rounded engineer equipped for a wide range of roles within industry.

About
