Course summary

From the tiny processors in smartphones to the heavy-duty power electronics in wind turbines, electronic and electrical systems underpin many modern technologies.Electronics is the study of circuits and devices that carry relatively small currents and voltages. It concerns the sensing, transduction and processing of data signals, in either digital or analogue forms. Electrical engineering concerns much larger currents and voltages - usually for the purpose of generating and transmitting electrical power.In an Electronics and Electrical Engineering (EEE) degree, you will study both areas, with the opportunity to specialise in later years. We deliver this content across several themes: * electrical power* digital electronics* analogue electronics* microelectronics* electromagnetics and photonics* bioelectronics**Programme aims**Studying this field requires a clear understanding of physics and the broader system it operates in. This programme balances theoretical studies, computation and simulation with practical experimentation. You will learn to work independently and collaboratively to find ingenious solutions to modern engineering problems.The MEng EEE degree is designed to be particularly relevant to those wishing to pursue a career as a professional engineer in industry.It combines more advanced study than our BEng degree, with a greater emphasis on industrially relevant skills. You will also get the opportunity to work in an industrial company whilst you carry out your MEng project in Years 4 and 5. **Ties to industry** Our Industrial Liaison Board includes senior representatives from important electronics and electrical engineering companies. This has influenced our curriculum and programme development.In your final year, you will have the opportunity to undertake a six-month placement in industry or at an overseas research institution or university.
