Brunel University London

Course Introduction

Electronic and Computer Engineering at Brunel is part of our College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences. We are one of the largest disciplines in the university, with research contracts worth £7.5 million.

Electronic equipment and products are a vital part of our daily lives, from mobile phones and computers to highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment used in hospitals and state'of'the'art fibre optic communications systems.

Computers, telecommunication systems and consumer electronics are advancing at a fast pace. Electronic and microelectronic embedded systems are at the core of these developments and there is a rapidly growing demand for well'qualified scientists and engineers across electronic and computer engineering.

Electronic and Electrical Engineering is a traditional and broad'based course which will develop you as a well'rounded engineer with a high level of analytical and engineering design skills. You’ll develop a sound knowledge of all aspects of electronic and electrical engineering and related areas and examine the future of electronics, microelectronics and computer systems. You’ll use the university’s well'resourced labs and facilities in electronics, sensors, computer systems, computer networks, signal processing. You’ll be taught in lectures, laboratory sessions, workshops and small group tutorials. You will also have one'to'one supervision for all your project work at each level. Our open'door policy means you can drop in for a chat or you can email lecturers with your questions.

Brunel is located near many of the UK’s information, engineering and telecommunications companies. This gives us a network for high'quality industry placements that is second to none. Through a placement you’ll bring your studies to life, develop excellent professional experience and gain valuable industry contacts. Previous students have been placed at companies like BMW and National Grid. These professional placements are supported by our on'campus Professional Development Centre. They look great on your CV and are highly valued by employers. Our graduates are working for prestigious organisations such as Philips, Siemens and a variety of engineering companies.
