The BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering aims to develop Engineers with a broad understanding of current technology and practice trends in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, covering a wide range of topics related to power and electronic systems. This discipline encompasses a wide skills base and the course equips graduates with the knowledge, skills, professionalism and confidence to thrive in the always-evolving field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, as well as gaining the transferrable skills to find employment in a diverse set of industrial, commercial and research sectors.
Through special option modules, this course can provide graduates with expertise and specialisation in areas which are rapidly evolving and have, possibly, the highest employability potential in Engineering:
> Telecommunications and Mobile Technologies
> Renewable and Sustainable Energy Systems
Employability is central to our degree provision and through this programme students will develop the necessary electrical and electronic engineering skills to ensure their successful career in this field. Course delivery allows students to concentrate in their chosen area depending on module choices, including Telecommunications, Mobile Technologies, Renewable Energy Systems, Digital Design, Electronics and Power Systems. This ensures their studies are shaped to suit their career aspirations.
We consider practical experience an important component of our students’ future employability. Through a number of modules, students will have the opportunity to get hands-on, practical understanding and experience to enhance their skills. Industrial placements may also be available for students to broaden their practical work experience and to consolidate their learning, as well as establishing a professional network which can provide them with a significant advantage in their early career development.
