Overview

With our 5G Innovation Centre and new Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory hosted on campus, Surrey is uniquely placed to train the electronic engineers who will play a crucial role in transforming tomorrow’s health service. On these programmes you will become part of this fast-expanding field.

On our Electronic Engineering for Medicine and Healthcare programmes you will learn how to develop the innovative user interfaces that will underpin a future health service focused on prevention, diagnosis and wellness – such as wearable devices that continuously collect, store and transmit health information.

You will benefit from Surrey’s new Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory – a £12.5m facility housing shared learning areas for engineering, biosciences and computer science students. Spending time in our well-equipped laboratories, you will apply what you learn in lectures to real challenges, and also work with academics from our research centres during individual and group project work.

The degrees are part of Surrey’s pioneering Innovation for Health programme, designed to bring together computer, data and health scientists to meet the challenges of an ageing population and changing patterns of disease, developing technologies that will facilitate improvements in healthcare.

Career opportunities

We are very proud of our track record for graduate employability. One of the main reasons for our graduate employability success is our Professional Training placement programme which is one of the largest in the World, with over 2,300 partner organisations in the UK and overseas. To find out more visit our Careers and Professional Training pages.

While a university degree in itself opens the door to many careers, the Professional Training that is offered as part of our degree programmes provides a significant extra dimension to the qualification and can dramatically enhance your employability in today’s difficult job market.

The industry experience that Professional Training affords gives our students insights into both their subject and their career potential that cannot be gained by academic study alone. We believe that Professional Training is a key element in ensuring that Surrey graduates are consistently at the top in terms of graduate employability.

Professional Training can be used in partial fulfilment of the training component for Chartered Engineer status.

You will be assisted during the second year to find appropriate placements in industry, and we endeavour to ensure that the placement matches your interests and aspirations. Over many years, we have established strong relationships with industry and hence there is a great demand for our students.

This ensures that there are many interesting and challenging opportunities on offer. In recent years, we have had students in placements with 85 different companies within our Electronic Engineering programmes.

During the Professional Training year, you remain a member of the University but are also a paid, full-time company employee. You will be visited by an academic member of staff who monitors your progress and, in discussion with the company, decides on a programme of work that will develop your expertise.

The optional Professional Training placement starts at the end of the second academic year, when you have sufficient knowledge and practical experience to join companies as a practising ‘junior engineer’.

Well-known companies that have participated in the Professional Training programme for Electronic Engineering pathways include:

BAE Systems
Mitsubishi
Intel
Logica
Samsung
Microsoft
Sharp
BBC
Surrey Satellite Technology

In addition, we have contacts with many smaller companies which provide excellent placement opportunities. Many of our students return from their placement with offers of employment and often with financial sponsorship from their placement company.
