Now recruiting for September 2020 entry


Gain the knowledge and skills required for a career in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. You will become familiar with the latest developments in the industry and learn how to overcome the challenges they present.

By the time you graduate, you'll be fully equipped to take on a leading role in the development of modern electrical and electronic systems. You will be able to research, design, build and market the next generation of products.

Many aspects of modern life are influenced by electrical and electronic engineering, for example energy, healthcare and communications. This course will cover a wide range of topics within the sector, including; generation, transfer and conversion of electrical power, the transfer of information using radio waves and fibre optics, complex computer and entertainment systems,  and electric or hybrid vehicles.

This highly technical course will allow you to gain strong fundamental skills in the theory and practical aspects of electrical and electronic engineering. You will have the opportunity to design, simulate, build and test an electrical or electronic system throughout the third year as part of your individual project, and will collaborate with an academic working at the cutting-edge of research.

Study style

Lectures, guest speakers and seminars, individual work, research and group work.
