Overview

Electrical engineering concerns anything that involves electrical power, from the electromagnetics of superconducting systems to the principles of power generation and transmission, and the development of more efficient and sustainable energy sources.

Energy is one of today’s biggest global challenges, with energy generation and supply, coupled with environmental factors, placing future energy needs and provision at the top of the government agendas in every country.

At Southampton they will provide you with the analytical skills to design and develop the technology of tomorrow using outstanding experimental facilities, including high-voltage laboratory.

Key areas of study include:

*technologies of electrical power production, distribution and control
*microelectronics
*computing

You will work on systems that interface electronics and computers with aircraft, electric cars and renewable energy sources.

MEng Electrical Engineering builds upon the BEng Electrical Engineering programme with advanced engineering topics, management studies, law and group projects, in which you will tackle wide-ranging engineering challenges. You will also have the opportunity to gain industrial experience through vacation employment.

A particular feature of the course is a group project, either working with a real customer from industry or transferring technology from the University into industrial practice, with a chance to exercise both self and team management skills.

The programme has been specifically designed to meet the increasing demand from industry for electrical engineers with cross-disciplinary skills. The university has excellent relationships with employers.

Programme structure

The MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme is identical to the programme offered in the UK with the same style and opportunities to study. The course will be taught in Malaysia for the first two years with a smooth transition to the Southampton’s UK campus for the final two years. You will therefore have the opportunity to graduate with a degree from an internationally recognised university and experience higher education in the UK with the opportunity to spend part of the time nearer to home.
