Course Introduction

This course is suitable for anyone who is interested in developing control systems, machinery and equipment and wish to pursue a career in electrical engineering, communications, control systems, robotics or sensor system. Our degrees are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Measurement and Control.

The MEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will provide you with a strong technical background in the key subjects of electronics, power engineering, signal processing and mechatronics, in conjunction with engineering management.

You can undertake a summer internship at the end of each academic year or opt to spend a year on an industry placement at the end of your third year - if you are on the MEng (Hons) route. Placements are paid, and are a fantastic way to gain professional experience in a relevant field as part of your degree. Undertaking a placement year could also count towards the experience requirement for a professional engineering qualification. In recent years Electrical and Electronic Engineering students have been able to obtain placements at leading companies within their chosen field such as TfL, Nissan, Gamma, G2 Energy, Interserve, AECOM and Network Rail.

This degree provides a solid foundation for people wishing to pursue a career in electrical engineering, communications, control systems, robotics or sensor systems. Recent graduates have joined employers such as UK Power Networks, BT, National Grid, AECOM, BP, Huawei, British Aerospace and DeltaRail.

Course Modules

You will gain a strong technical background in the key subjects of electronics, power engineering, signal processing and mechatronics.

You can take advantage of many recent advantages in computer-based engineering analyses, using software such as Matlab and LabView. Our laboratories feature chip production facilities and electrical power equipment.

Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science (largely physics) and mathematics that underpin engineering principles.

Students begin to specialise in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in year two. Learning includes modules on measurement, data analysis, mechatronics and electronic circuit design.

The third year includes signal processing and communications, system modelling and control, electromagnetism and power engineering and digital design. At the end of this year students will have established a systematic and detailed knowledge of their discipline and an understanding of the role of engineering management.

The final year of the integrated Masters involves a major individual research project and group design exercises and modules covering variety of topics including advanced structural analysis and heat transfer, advanced computational fluid dynamics etc.
