Electronics & Electrical Engineering

Why Electronics & Electrical Engineering?

Students building Runbot The Electronics & Electrical Engineering degree structure is wide ranging, so that your future career can span anything from power engineering to micro-electronics, radar installations to digital systems. We emphasise fundamental principles and how to apply them to solve practical engineering problems. Even in the early years when you are are mastering basic engineering and mathematics, you will use what you have learned to design and construct useful devices.

In later years, having learned circuit and system design and other core skills, you will focus your degree by choosing to study a number of advanced specialist topics. These could include bioelectronics, computer architecture, optoelectronics and electronic device fabrication. Watch a clip about the electronic devices lab. In addition to state-of-the-art technical skills, you will gain expertise in professional aspects including economics, project organisation and management; and environmental issues including EMC, energy conservation, and safety.

For more information you can watch a graduate of the Electronics & Electrical Engineering degree talk about the course.

Successful completion of this degree will give you excellent job prospects in industry or the opportunity to continue into postgraduate research.
