BEng (Hons) Electrical & Electronic Engineering

The continuing rapid expansion of technology calls for highly qualified and skilled electronic and electrical engineers. Studying electrical and electronic engineering will prepare you for a vast range of exciting careers, equipping you with technical engineering skills as well as technology, communication and design expertise.

On this practical, hands-on degree you’ll use our on-site advanced facilities to help prepare you for the demands of working in this industry.

Using our computer-aided design (CAD), electronics and engineering laboratories you’ll be trained industry-standard software packages to equip you with all technical skills you’ll need.

You will investigate the theory of electrical and electronic engineering and then put your learning into practice, developing skills in CAD, computer application, business management and project management.

You’ll discover specialist topics you will study include analogue and digital electronics, software design, digital signal processing, control engineering, microprocessors, radio systems and industrial control systems.

Year 1 (Level 4)

The level 4 modules are common to both the electrical and electronic programmes, these modules will lay the foundations for the rest of your degree programme and will equip you with the core theoretical and practical skills you will need to successfully complete the remaining years of study.
