Giving you a flexible approach that lets you tailor our electronic engineering course to suit your personal interests and career ambitions, you’ll gain the skills, the knowledge, and the hands-on experience that will put you at the forefront of the next generation of electronic engineers. With the option to study a three-year BEng, or a four-year MEng, you’ll gain a broad understanding of both digital and analogue electrical systems. You’ll also enhance your problem-solving ability, build your design skills and learn to use professional methods and software to build complex electronic circuits and systems. With access to our range of facilities and workshops and industry experts, you’ll also get plenty of feedback and support to start building your professional portfolio. You’ll broaden your knowledge, industry contacts and employability skills through our networking events, work experience opportunities and the chance to take part in design engineering competitions. You’ll also have the option to gain a competitive edge by taking a paid, year-long work placement. Our weekly guest lectures give you the chance to enhance your industry knowledge and build contacts with some of the industry’s leading design experts and companies. From your second year, you’ll have the option to carry on with your electronic engineering degree or transfer to a design engineering, robotics, or mechatronics programme. If you’re applying for our four-year MEng course, you’ll also gain your master’s qualification as soon as you successfully finish your undergraduate study. During your course, you’ll get personalised support from your Personal Tutor, Student Learning Assistant, and Graduate Academic Assistant. Their first-hand experience in your subject area means they understand how to best support you. We’re also committed to helping you get a competitive edge when it comes to launching your career. Our electronics engineering degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED), and meets the academic standards of Chartered Engineer (CEng). This means you’ll be able to apply for CEng status after gaining enough experience in an engineering role.
Electronic Engineering BEng/MEng
Electronic engineering offers an interesting career full of challenging tasks.
Whether you opt for the BEng Electronic Engineering or MEng Electronic Engineering you will study a broad range of disciplines including systems, mechanical, electrical, computer and control engineering. In addition to the fundamentals of Design Engineering, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the specialist area of Electronic Engineering. You will study analogue and digital electronic theories before putting these into practice building a range of complex electronic circuits using various methods and software tools. The course also introduces students to the design and implementation of system-on-a-chip and systems engineering approaches to problem solving. The MEng Electronic Engineering degree allows you to specialise further and gives you the option to study cutting-edge developments in the subject. You will demonstrate your advanced skills and mastery of the area by working on a team project in your chosen specialism.
