Studying electrical and electronic engineering puts you at the centre of a vibrant and fast-moving discipline of relevance to industries such as electronics, information technology, manufacturing, energy generation and supply, transport, and communications.

Choosing one of our MEng degrees offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng. Our MEng degree allows you to use the last two years to expand and strengthen your knowledge in electrical and electronic engineering. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project.

This course includes the opportunity to take a year of industrial placement between your second and third years of academic study. With this option we will support you in finding a placement that will allow you to experience at first- hand, a professional working environment. If you are successful in securing a placement you will be paid a salary and will enhance your employability skills through direct experience of working in business, industry or the public sector.

You will also have the opportunity to spend one semester studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. They include universities in countries such as France, Germany, Italy, the USA, Australia, Canada and more.

The course is reviewed annually with input from our industrial partners to ensure that the modules taught are at the cutting edge and reflect the current state of the industry.

Other electrical and electronic engineering courses include a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering if you choose a BEng course.
