Do you want to work at the forefront of industry? 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, youâll have access to our state-of-the-art technology and resources, plus youâll have the opportunity to secure yourself an industry placement, giving you instrumental electrical engineering work experience.
What's covered in the course?
The Electronic Engineering MEng 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 transferable 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 centred 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.
Youâll 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 youâll 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.
