Electronics-based products play a vital role in our daily lives. Examples include diagnostic equipment used in modern hospitals, broadband, satellite, and wireless communication technologies, and consumer electronics in the home. At Kent, our research led degrees mean our graduates can work at the forefront of the major areas of electronic engineering and you will combine theory with practical and project work, turning ideas into real systems. We have strong links with the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and our student work has won international prizes. Also, our visiting industrial professors contribute a strong industrial relevance of our courses.

Application deadline details:
Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.
I have loved my 3 years at Kent. It really does feel like a family. The campus is amazing (especially if you like rabbits), there is lots of places to relax, study or socialise. The facility's are all in great condition and well thought out. Plenty of opportunity to get involved in extra things such as clubs, work, volunteering etc. Like any family it has its problems (mainly communication) but this is something they seem to be working on and the enthusiastic caring lecturers make up for it.
