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.

The Electrical Engineering with Renewable Energy Systems MEng will develop you as an electrical engineer of the future. You’ll be able to tackle issues associated with the operation, planning and management of sustainable electrical systems. You will also be able to apply knowledge and skills effectively as you find solutions for problems associated with the design, integration and development of technology for modern electric power and power electronic systems. 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.
