Middlesex University

Course Introduction

Develop the technical knowledge and project experience for a career as an electronic engineer designing the circuits, processors and devices at the core of technological evolution.

**Why study BEng/MEng Electronic Engineering at Middlesex University?**

Electronic Engineering at Middlesex is available as either a three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) and a four-year Master of Engineering (MEng).

As part of our suite of Design Engineering courses, the Electronic Engineering degrees produce professional and competent multi-disciplinary engineers specialist in analogue and digital electronic systems. You will design and build complex electronic circuits and systems-on-a-chip using a range of methods and software tools, applying a systems engineering approach to problem solving.

To support your career success, you will build a professional portfolio of work throughout your degree and receive regular guest lectures and project feedback from industry professionals, with the option of spending a year on industry placement.

Flexible programme design

Our suite of Design Engineering courses share a common first year of study, which enable students to experience all aspects of engineering. Depending on your interests, you can then continue with the Electronic Engineering degree or transfer to one of these specialist honours programmes:

Design Engineering - Design and implementation of digital systems

Mechatronics - Design of electro-mechanical systems using computer control aspects

Robotics - Analysing and developing robotics systems

**Course highlights**

You will be encouraged to enter prestigious design engineering competitions to enhance your experience and career prospects

Our dedicated facilities in the new Ritterman Building open in Autumn 2016 and are equipped with industry standard equipment in electronics, mechatronics, robotics and networking solutions

All the essential software needed to study the course is provided, including LabVIEW, SolidWorks and STEP-7

You will extend your industry knowledge through our series of weekly guest lectures delivered by some of the UKs leading design experts and companies

A year-long work placement is available as part of the course

If you apply for our four-year MEng course you will gain a masters qualification as soon as you successfully complete your undergraduate degree

Whichever pathway you choose, you can change to another after your first year. You can also change onto the main Design Engineering pathway after your second year if desired

As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.
