Program description

Aerospace Electronic Engineering

At Southampton our Electronic Engineering graduates have a world-leading reputation for creative solutions based on cutting-edge knowledge and state-of-the-art technical skills. Our four-year MEng Aerospace Electronic Engineering degree builds on the BEng Aerospace Electronic Engineering and has been specifically designed to focus on electronics for aerospace and spacecraft systems. It will enable you to gain the skills fundamental to modern aerospace electronic systems, both theoretical and practical. Key areas of study include electronic circuits and systems, flight mechanics and aerospace systems, radar techniques and applications, guidance, navigation and control, space systems engineering, digital systems and microprocessors, programming and computer engineering, devices and solid state electronics and mathematics. You will have the opportunity to design, simulate and build a unique aerospace electronic system as part of your individual project during the third year, and will collaborate with an academic working at the cutting-edge of research to develop analytical and innovative solutions to engineering problems. Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Southampton are Ranked number 1 in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2017) and we are first in the UK for graduate prospects (Guardian University Guide 2017). 100 per cent of our students are in professional/managerial work six months after graduating (Unistats 2016) and we are first in the UK for volume and quality of our electrical and electronic engineering research (REF 2014). We have an unrivalled reputation for our facilities, including our £4.5m undergraduate teaching labs and £100m state-of-the-art interdisciplinary clean room complex and high-voltage laboratory. Our renowned teaching staff prepare our students to work in a wide variety of areas and fields; we have strong relationships with employers, and our graduates are particularly in demand for their understanding of organisations and their practical abilities in the workplace. We have our own Careers Hub website, run an annual careers fair and have a dedicated startup incubator, Future Worlds, to support student enterprise. Our MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and we are members of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UK-ESF) and IET Power Academy.
