About this program
Electrical and Electronic Engineering BEng
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this course puts you at the forefront of specialist areas of electrical and electronic engineering and will help you master a skillset that meets industry needs. You will study a range of core topics, including Electronic Circuits and Systems and Embedded Systems, and choose from optional modules, such as Mobile Communication and Advanced Power Electronics and Applications, to suit your ambitions.
Whether you opt for the three-year BEng or four-year integrated master’s MEng, our experienced staff will further your understanding of electrical and electronic engineering principles, and will also develop your design, research and project management skills.
In your third year you will focus on a substantial piece of individual research or product development work targeted to your interests, giving you the opportunity to showcase your understanding and skills.
Our dedicated facilities are divided into five main areas, each featuring experimental equipment – general electronics and assembly, digital electronics and microprocessor engineering, power electronics, control systems and communications engineering.
Graduates are working at national and multinational companies, including Airbus UK and Cummins UK, pursuing careers in electronic product design, radio frequency design and mobile communications, signal processing, control and power electronics, electronic control systems, telecommunications, military and aeronautical electronics.
- Normally 112 UCAS points (120 UCAS points for MEng) from at least two A-levels or equivalent, including one of the following subjects: Mathematics or Physics at grade C or
- Engineering or Physics BTEC National Diploma/ Extended Diploma at DMM (DDM for MEng)
Plus five GCSEs at grade C or above, including English and Mathematics or equivalent.
Alternative qualifications include:
- Pass in one of the following QAA accredited Access to HE course.
