About this program
Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering
Enter the world of large-scale electrical power. Learn to build the systems and technologies that will grow our power networks for decades to come. From sustainable energy generation to the use of electric vehicles, big changes in the way we produce and use power are creating exciting challenges for today’s electrical engineers.
Electrical engineering is about the generation and control of electricity, its distribution for use in homes and industry, and the design of large-scale machinery.
You’ll study technologies of:
- electrical power engineering, including production, distribution and control
- microelectronics and computing
- systems that interface electronics and computers with aircraft, electric cars and renewable energy sources
This degree can take you in several interesting career directions – you could find yourself improving the integration of sustainable power sources to the grid or designing next-generation components to upgrade the ageing power infrastructure.
You’ll learn in an electronics lab equipped with the latest technologies. We are also home to the Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory – a centre for cutting-edge electrical power research and one of just a few labs of its kind in the UK.
This electrical 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
