About this program

Bachelor's Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This degree will teach you to design new technologies and solve some of today’s biggest engineering challenges. You'll look into subjects like smarter energy distribution and intelligent robotics. Learn from researchers who will share their passion for their areas of expertise. This includes high-voltage electrical engineering, sustainable energy and machine learning.

Electronics is all about the components and systems that make electronic devices work. Electrical engineering deals with the generation, distribution and use of electricity on a large scale. This degree combines our exceptional training in both disciplines.

During your studies, you’ll have access to outstanding experimental research facilities. This includes a modern electronics lab with the latest industry-standard equipment.

You’ll carry out experimental and design-based assignments. You could build a robot or design and testing a microprocessor. You’ll also learn the programming and mathematical skills in your engineering training. For example, you might choose to use simulation software to design and analyse electronic control systems.

You can also learn about the latest advances in areas such as quantum technology and photonics (the science of light).

This BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of:

  • fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer
  • partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer
