What will I learn?

Our MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering course allows to you gain a MEng qualification in four years, rather than the traditional five year path, making it a more time and cost-effective choice. Designed to stretch our top students, it also includes a twelve month industrial placement, giving you the opportunity to study electronics more deeply than at BEng level while also gaining valuable industry experience.

Our courses have been developed in collaboration with electronics professionals in a wide range of sectors to give a broad but industrially relevant degree. The design of this innovative course emphasises ‘doing’ as well as ‘knowing’, helping you to develop essential practical, intellectual, business and communication skills. This ‘real world’ approach, combined with the beneficial experience you will gain during your placement, will give you a clear competitive edge in the search for graduate employment.Well-trained graduates with skills in electronics design, software, telecommunications and engineering are in high demand. Some of our recent graduates are currently commanding high salaries working in government, the public sector and in private industry. In the latter sector, employers include Olympus, Oclaro, Corus, HSBC, Hewlett Packard, Oxford University, BAE Systems, Npower, Cogent Defence, Siemens, Orange, Vodafone, QinetiQ, National Grid, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Cars, Schlumberger and Microsoft.
