What is Electrical and Electronics Engineering MEng?

Gain the knowledge and skills you need to design embedded systems for various applications of control, diagnostics, monitoring and communication in the era of the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and 5.0. The course develops your understanding of key aspects of electrical and electronics engineering – and how they fit into the context of the full range of industrial sectors and rapidly-developing everyday applications.

You’ll address the challenges, problems and solutions involved in electrical and electronics engineering in modern industry including:

  • engineering operation and management
  • the optimal and intelligent electrical and electronic system design and development
  • pioneering approaches in this field and how to apply them to solve real-world and pioneer research-oriented problems.

Study skills

Shared learning is strongly encouraged, with group work bringing together engineers from a variety of backgrounds to shape projects and tasks. You’ll gain practical experience in project management, team building and data acquisition.

The programme is designed for students interested in developing their careers in areas of theoretical and practical aspects of electrical and electronics systems engineering. It also provides excellent preparation for those wishing to continue their study to doctoral level research.

Entry requirements
