Program description

Electronic and Electrical Engineering, BEng

Our design-based degree teaches the essentials of electronic and electrical engineering, allowing you to engage with creativity and develop a range of practical and professional skills, which will create opportunities in a range of industries.

Electronic and electrical engineering is concerned with the broad application of electricity and electronics, ranging from small intelligent microprocessor based systems through to large scale power generators. Virtually every sector requires and uses electronic or electrical engineering and it is difficult to think of an application where it does not have influence.

You will benefit from our research informed teaching, which is a key strength of this program. You will join a thriving academic department that makes use of our expertise in microelectromechanical smart systems; novel electromagnetics; radio frequency engineering; and millimetre waves with THz signals. Through this program, you will be exposed to our work with organisations such as CERN and the European Space Agency.

The program begins with a broad based common first year. You will learn about subjects such as heat transfer and manufacturing, which form a key requirement of modern electronic systems. Our Electronic and Electrical Engineers work alongside other disciplines, reflecting very much how you would operate in industry, equipping you with interdisciplinary project, communication and professional skills to allow you to excel in your professional career.

Specialist modules in electronic and electrical engineering continue in the second year, where you will build your familiarity and practical experience in widely-used programming languages and software development environments, reinforcing your technical knowledge. This year, you will complete a small group project, where you will apply your specialist knowledge within an interdisciplinary team.
