BEng (Hons) Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Why choose this course?

From transport and renewable energy to aerospace and robotics, this degree equips you with the sought-after skills to work at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. The course, accredited by the Engineering Council, explores how electrical engineers shape the future of these sectors through innovation and design.

You will:

  • Have access to electronic design and testing labs, power electronics labs, programmable logic controllers (PLC) labs and computer-aided design (CAD) labs.
  • Gain practical experience on industry-standard software packages, developing skills that are sought-after by industry.
  • Be equipped with analytical, computational, design and transferable skills, including an awareness of social, environmental and ethical implications.
  • Benefit from strong links to local and national industry, with opportunities for site visits.
  • Focus on specialisms within Power, Electronics, Instrumentation and Control.
  • Be able to tailor your module choices to specialise in either Electrical or Electronic Engineering, depending on your goals and interests.

Entry Requirements

The academic requirements for the course are 80-112 UCAS tariff points at GCE A-level or equivalent, including Maths or Physics.

IELTS:

 6.0 (with no individual skill score below 5.5)

Career Prospects

The course equips you with a thorough knowledge and skills in engineering at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. Graduates will be well placed to become subject specialists within the industry or to pursue research careers within academia.

There is a recognised shortage of qualified electrical/electronic engineers in the UK. A qualification in the field will make you instantly attractive to employers as a result. You will have the skills to contribute to the design and development of electronic systems and processes. Employment opportunities exist in the aerospace industry in aircraft instrumentation systems (technician or engineer level) or in the armed forces.
