Electronic and electrical engineering

Undergraduate courses starting in 2022

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

Electronic and electrical engineering is the driving force behind many of our systems, infrastructure and technologies. In a sector that is evolving, engineers need to combine design creativity with scientific analysis to develop the next products and applications. At Bath, we want to give you the knowledge and confidence to not just keep up with these advances, but to be able to lead them.

On our courses, you’ll discover the technology behind communications, healthcare, transport and energy. You’ll learn how to use technical knowledge and creativity to design and build advanced electronic devices and systems. And, our partnerships with the UK Electronics Skills Foundation and the IET Power Academy give you access to scholarships with leading companies such as ARM, National Grid and Rolls Royce.

The academic and practical skills you graduate with will help you begin a career as a professional engineer. You could be developing the next smartphone, finding better ways to detect cancer, developing renewable micro-grids, or leading the robotics revolution.

Our MEng degrees give you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work and fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer. By choosing to take a placement year during your course, you’ll get to put your theory into practice and earn a wage while you work alongside professional engineers.
