Create the next generation of intelligent connected devices and robotic systems or discover solutions driven by data and electronics. Study this research-informed degree and benefit from our strong industry links.
The MEng/BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering will prepare you to compete for a wide range of job opportunities in the UK and internationally. While gaining a broad understanding of emerging electrical and electronic engineering, and the engineering business environment, you'll also develop essential leadership, management and communication skills and the global perspective you need to excel in a career in engineering.
Rapid advancements in communications, sensor technologies, robotics, and high speed electronics, combined with newer technologies such as machine learning and computer vision continue to revolutionise the world we live in.
This programme provides you with the necessary skills and experience that will enable you to take your place in the fastpaced world of electrical and electronic engineering as a creator of next generation, intelligent, connected devices and systems.
Have you ever wondered what mobiles and tablets will be like in the future? How can we use satellites to better our lives? How can we help people by advancing medical devices? What will next generation cars and transportation systems look like? How can robots do things better? What sustainable energy sources are possible? Where can we go with space exploration? These are some of the questions that electronic industries are asking as well, so you are not alone and you are heading in the right direction. The first two years provides students with basic electrical and electronic engineering skills and in the more advanced years you can select options within specialist areas. Wherever possible we employ hands-on project work to help you develop your practical and problem-solving skills.
In the fourth year you will undertake an individual project that is either linked to research within the department such as condition monitoring in power systems, computer vision or improved next generation wireless networks, or, potentially, linked to industry relevant design activity such as motor control hardware and software to propel and steer intelligent vehicles, or sensor designs for next generation Internet of Things. You may also develop your own ideas and undertake a personalised project.
Candidates with a higher level of attainment can either enrol directly on the 5 year MEng degree or transfer from the BEng at any stage of study prior to graduation. The MEng degree provides you with the opportunity to attain an integrated Masters award and so demonstrate professional readiness to employers.
Students on the programme are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities for a year-long industrial placement and international exchange with partner Universities in over 20 countries.
This programme is accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), one of the world's largest engineering institutions. IET Accreditation is an internationally respected benchmark awarded to high quality programmes that meet the requirements for professional engineers.
The programme involves a common first two years of core elements covering Electrical Principles, Analogue and Digital Electronics, Mathematics, Software Development, Mechanical Principles, Electrical Systems and a yearly Design Project. Modules titles and content in subsequent years often change as the curriculum and new technologies develop. In the advanced years students can expect to undertake core modules with optional modules to personalise their learning or career aspirations.
Core: Digital and Programmable Systems, Integrated Engineering Studies, Engineering Operations and Management. Typical year 3 options include Signals and Electronic Systems Design, Communications Engineering, Modelling and Data Analysis, Computer Aided Engineering, Control Engineering, Engineering Design and Analysis or Signals and Electronic Systems.
Core: Honours Project, Digital Signal Processing. Typical year 4 options include Intelligent Robotics and Mechatronics, Digital Design and Computer Architecture, Wireless Communications, System Level Design, Engineering Design and Analysis, Computer Aided Design or Control Engineering
Year 5 (MEng)
Core: MEng Team Project. Typical year 5 options include Digital Communications, Real Time DSP, Embedded Systems Applications, Image Processing and Machine Vision, Optical Communications, Simulation of Computer Networks, Wireless and Mobile Communications Systems, Control Systems, Industrial Communications and Networks or Condition Monitoring.
Graduates can expect to find employment in industries such as mobile systems, interactive entertainment, robotic systems design, image processing, artificial intelligence, communications and networking, automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, renewable energy, instrumentation and medical systems, as well as being in demand in roles outside engineering where their problem-solving skills and wide knowledge of technology is highly valued.
