The fundamental principles of the field such as digital and analogue electronics, computing, mathematics and project management will be covered at the beginning of the course. You will then be able to specialise in your areas of interest by selecting from a range of options including digital system design, telecommunications systems, optoelectronics and signal processing before embarking in the final year on an extensive design project of your own choosing. Well-trained graduates with skills in electronics design, software, telecommunications and engineering are in high demand. Some of our recent graduates are currently commanding high salaries working in government, the public sector and private industry, for employers such as: Olympus, Corus, HSBC, Oxford University, Hewlett Packard, Cogent Defence, BAE Systems, Npower, Siemens, Orange, Vodafone, QinetiQ, National Grid, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Cars and Microsoft. Our courses have been developed in collaboration with electronics professionals in a wide range of sectors to give a broad but industrially relevant degree. Key course benefits: - Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) - Electronic & Electrical Engineering ranked 27th out of 77 institutions in the UK (2017 Guardian League Table) - Electrical Engineering at Aston is ranked 12th out of 69 institutions for Graduate Prospects in the 2017 Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide - Our optional placement year offers you the opportunity to gain valuable experience and set your studies in the context of a working environment, designed to boost your future employment prospects.
Modules:
The first two years of the MEng are taught alongside the BEng degree. Starting with the basic principles of analogue, digital and programmable electronic systems, you will rapidly develop the analytical skills to understand and begin designing electrical circuits and systems. You will also take courses in computing and mathematics. Project work encourages you to develop skills in team working, business and communications. In Year 2 you will study digital and programmable systems, communication systems, electronic systems and electrical systems in more depth. A themed design project and business course will enable you to develop your professional design and management skills. By taking additional modules after the end of the second year, you can incorporate the placement within a 4-year course. The final two years allow you to develop your skills in engineering and engineering management to a much greater depth and gain important experience working on an engineering placement.

    It’s a nice university in terms of location and area and it has some nice facilities. For example, we have recently had our dispensing suite refurbished and had two more lecture rooms refurbished.

    Although it’s not the top university in the city, it’s very well accredited and is known for top student satisfaction. The clubs/union offers something for everyone, as well as a busy nightlife and shopping facilities being just around the corner.
