About this program
BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year
We’ve developed this course for students who have not completed a traditional foundation course or who are not quite ready to go on to degree level, but who know which subject they wish to study. This course is the first stage of a bachelors degree – it is not a standalone course. Following the successful completion of the year you'll then progress on to the first year of the appropriate degree.
This BEng degree has an optional year in industry and covers both electrical engineering – where electricity is used to transport and deliver energy – and electronic engineering – where electricity can be used to process, transmit and store information.
WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
This BEng covers deeper scientific study and more analytical work than the BSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering, which we also offer. It’s a faster route towards Chartered Engineer status. We have a good graduate employment rate – over 91% find graduate-level jobs* – and you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, thanks to our partnership with CERN.
IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?
If you think you want to become an Incorporated Engineer or Chartered Engineer, this electrical and electronic engineering degree is a good first step; particularly if you’re looking for a deep understanding of the science or are set on gaining Chartered Engineer status.
HOW YOU WILL LEARN
You will learn through lectures, tutorials, and laboratory work. You’ll carry out experiments in our specialist laboratories and have access to online materials 24/7.
OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCES
If you choose to take the placement year in industry, you can really boost your career prospects. Many companies look for placement students and there’s plenty of support here to help you find and make the most of these opportunities.
CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY
Electrical and electronic engineering graduates from Derby can be found developing embedded systems in cars, electrical power distribution systems, railway signalling systems or rolling stock enhancements. They are also managing major industrial processes, from breweries to assembly lines. However, with your advanced numeracy and problem-solving skills, you will have many other career options too: teaching, banking, accountancy, technical sales or management for example. If you want to gain Chartered Engineer status, you’ll need to move on to postgraduate study.
