Electronic and electrical engineering

Undergraduate courses starting in 2018

The study of electricity and its application in modern systems and devices, underpinning most technological advances in industry and society.

Learn the technology behind communications, transport and energy. You’ll combine creativity with advanced technical knowledge and scientific analysis to design and build electronic devices and systems. Develop your academic, management and leadership skills to become a professional electronic and electrical engineer. You'll graduate equipped for a career in industry, research or academia.


Learning experience

Expert academics

You’ll learn from academics with expertise in electronic and electrical engineering. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.

Specialist facilities and equipment

You'll have access to facilities specially equipped for your degree. Our facilities are designed to be similar to industrial workspaces so you gain an insight into what it is like to work in a professional environment. These include laboratories for tomography, superconductivity, autonomous systems and robotics. We also have facilities for optoelectronics and circuit board prototyping, and a mechanical workshop.

Graduate employability

We work with industrial partners to make sure our course content reflects the needs of engineering industries. You’ll graduate with the technical expertise and transferable skills that will open up employment opportunities for you. You can pursue a career in high-technology industries in electronics, power, aerospace, communication, robotics or manufacturing. Or you could find employment in other sectors such as IT, financial services, accountancy, the armed forces or business. Many of our graduates continue their studies to pursue an academic or research career.
