MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering


The MEng / BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering will prepare you to compete for a wide range of job opportunities in the UK and internationally. While gaining a broad understanding of emerging electrical and electronic engineering, and the engineering business environment, you’ll also develop essential leadership, management and communication skills and the global perspective you need to excel in a career in engineering.

Our programme provides you with the necessary skills and experience that will enable you to take your place in the fastpaced world of electrical and electronic engineering as a creator of next generation, intelligent, connected devices and systems.

Have you ever wondered what mobiles and tablets will be like in the future? How can we use satellites to better our lives? How can we help people by advancing medical devices? What will next generation cars and transportation systems look like? How can robots do things better? What sustainable energy sources are possible? Where can we go with space exploration? These are some of the questions that electronic industries are asking as well, so you are not alone and you are heading in the right direction. The first two years provides students with basic electrical and electronic engineering skills and in the more advanced years you can select options within specialist areas. Wherever possible we employ hands-on project work to help you develop your practical and problem-solving skills.

In the fourth year you will undertake an individual project that is either linked to research within the department such as condition monitoring in power systems, computer vision or improved next generation wireless networks, or, potentially, linked to industry relevant design activity such as motor control hardware and software to propel and steer intelligent vehicles, or sensor designs for next generation Internet of Things. You may also develop your own ideas and undertake a personalised project.
