Our BEng / MEng Electronic Engineering course will encourage and support you to become an engineer at the forefront of industry. You’ll gain a broad range of skills, helping you to become a rounded engineer with the attributes required by industry.

You will gain an understanding of the social, commercial, legal, ethical, economic and environmental factors associated with engineering, as well as comprehensive knowledge of the science and mathematics associated with the discipline.

You will also develop the key transferrable skills that modern employers require, such as problem solving, project planning, presentation and communication. Our competitions, such as the annual Global Game Jam, will give you the chance to not only help run an acclaimed event, but also to build and design your own creations, giving you invaluable experience.

We are offering a guaranteed placement during your course, either through a summer internship or year-long sandwich placement, which will provide you with the real-life skills and experience you’ll need to stand out from the crowd upon employment. This has helped former graduates progress into roles with companies such as Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover and Wilmott Dixon.

Programme structure

We will shape and enhance your knowledge through formal lectures, tutor-led seminars and practical activities, as well as a range of independent learning activities. The latter includes an element of peer review, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the learning.

Technology-enhanced learning is also used, through online resources, discussion forums and other activities, and a range of case studies and problem-based learning scenarios are implemented to sharpen your skills.

A range of assessment methods are employed with associated assessment criteria. You’ll be assessed through formal and summative methods, including coursework, examinations, presentations, practical assignments, vivas, online tests and project work.

In your third year, you will conduct an individual project, where you will hone and enhance your organisational, research and time management skills.
