Electrical and electronic engineers develop systems that power our homes and enable us to communicate wherever we are. From smartphones and agile robots to aircraft control systems and renewable energy provision, the solutions developed by electrical and electronic engineers continue to improve and transform our lives. The BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will provide you with a strong technical background in the key subjects of electronics, power engineering, signal processing and mechatronics, in conjunction with engineering management. This degree provides a solid foundation for people wishing to pursue a career in electrical engineering, communications, control systems, robotics or sensor systems.You will develop a diverse range of theoretical skills and practical experiences, which can be applied to real-world situations. Our staff are research-active, at the cutting-edge of their field and up-to-date with the latest industrial developments in their subject areas.
You will gain a strong technical background in the key subjects of electronics, power engineering, signal processing and mechatronics.
Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science (largely physics) and mathematics that underpin engineering principles.
Students begin to specialise in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in year two. Learning includes modules on measurement, data analysis, mechatronics and electronic circuit design.
The third year includes signal processing and communications, system modelling and control, electromagnetism and power engineering and digital design. At the end of this year students will have established a systematic and detailed knowledge of their discipline and an understanding of the role of engineering management.
The balance of assessment by coursework (assessed essays and assignments) unseen examinations and a final year project will to some extent depend on the optional modules you choose. The approximate percentage of the course assessment, based on 2016/17 entry is as follows:
- Year 1
50% written examination, 3% practical exams, 47% coursework
- Year 2
60% written examination, 40% coursework
- Year 3
51% written examination, 6% practical exams, 43% coursework.
