Birmingham City University - ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING - BENG (HONS) / MENG

Birmingham City University


Our BEng (Hons) / MEng Electronic Engineering course will teach you a broad range of skills, helping you to become a rounded electrical engineer.

Throughout your degree study, you’ll have access to our state-of-the-art technology and resources, plus you’ll have the opportunity to secure yourself an industry placement, giving you instrumental electrical engineering work experience.


The Electronic Engineering will give you


an understanding of the social, commercial, legal, ethical, economic and environmental factors associated with engineering, as well as comprehensive knowledge of the science and mathematics associated with the discipline.

You will also develop the key transferrable skills that modern employers require, such as problem solving, project planning, presentation and communication. Our competitions, such as the annual Engineering Show, which includes the international micro-mouse competition, gives you the opportunity to participate in a range of competitions centered on autonomous and non-autonomous robotic vehicles.

Our engineering courses focus on project-based activities, giving you lots of opportunity to work in teams on projects from design to implementation. This will give you practical experience of applying engineering science to real world problems, working in multidisciplinary teams to develop your interpersonal skills, and prepare you for a key aspect of modern engineering practice.

You’ll also have the option of a placement during your course, either through a summer internship or year-long sandwich placement, which will provide you with the real-life skills and experience you’ll need to stand out from the crowd upon graduation. This has helped former graduates progress into roles within companies such as


UTC Aerospace and Vector GB.

Students can also conduct an industrial placement year, gaining valuable work experience in real-life companies. The university's excellent partnerships with major UK companies, such as General Electric, UTC Aerospace, and Bosch, provide support in finding and applying for positions.

Course Details

Students completing an IET accredited degree are considered to have met part or all of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer. They are in a strong position to move on to professional engineering status after a period of initial professional development in industry. To achieve professional accreditation, students must have a minimum of 4 years relevant industrial engineering experience at the appropriate level. Current BEng courses are accredited at Partial CEng level, allowing applicants to apply for Incorporated Engineer Level. If applying for CEng Engineer level, further learning at PG level, such as an accredited MSc in the relevant subject, is required.
Accredited MEng graduates will meet in part the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. However, graduates from an accredited MEng program without an appropriately accredited Honours degree will not be considered for CEng registration and will need to have their qualifications individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure.
