    Some unis offer a course in Electrical AND electronic engineering combined.
    Such as Aston and Leicester. Others offer them separately.
    Whats the difference?

    Electrical Engineering is more large scale, like transformers and power grids.
    Electronic Engineering is small scale, like motherboards and other electronic components.
    Their concepts cross over, so doing both isn't a bad idea.

    Sorry not to sound silly. But of you did do a degree in electrical and electronic engineering. Would you be both an electrical and electronic engineer?

    Electrical is generally provision of power whereas Electronic is related to communication and calculation. Yes if you graduated with a EEE degree you could do both although I'd guess that most people specialise in later years and you'd have to pick one once you enter the graduate market anyway.
