What will I learn?

Introduction:

Mathematics underpins every great engineering solution. That’s why, in your first year, we focus on mathematics and support you to develop a board knowledge of engineering and science. You’ll be ready for anything once you move on to BEng (Hons) Electronic and Electrical Engineering in your second year.

With a focus on sustainability and environmental issues, you’ll have opportunities to get involved in industry projects. Coupled with our support, you’ll develop into a creative and confident engineering graduate.

It’s impossible to imagine a world without electronic and electrical engineering. It covers everything from tiny integrated circuits in household items and mobile phones, to the large-scale utilities that power our homes. The industry is fast paced and rapidly changing with a focus on renewable and sustainable energy sources. An electronic and electrical degree from NTU can put
you are the forefront of this exciting technological revolution by providing the skills and knowledge needed to be a great engineer.

We are partnering with industry every step of the way to ensure that you become the very best engineer of the future by working with all types and sizes of engineering organisations. In our innovative approach, you’ll spend a large proportion of your time each year applying theory to live, industry-led projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for a year-long work placement to boost your industry knowledge even further.

It’s OK if you want to change direction at the end of your foundation year. The flexibility means that we can support you if you want to move onto one of our other engineering or mathematics courses in your second year.

Careers

You’ve probably already got some idea of the career path you want to take. Many of our graduates go on to work in engineering-based roles, but it’s worth remembering that the skills you learn on an engineering degree are transferable to a variety of careers. Research, presentation, team working and analytical skills are highly valued by employers in various professions, both related and unrelated to engineering.

Engineering graduates are in demand as they are attractive to a wide range of employers due to their analytical thinking, problem-solving, and strong numeracy skills. You’ll be well-placed to secure a career in a range of sectors, including the armed forces, logistics, teaching, IT, and banking. Recent NTU graduates have gone onto engineering positions in a variety of organisations including Pitney Bowes, the RAF, Rolls Royce, and Siemens.

Many graduates also choose to undertake further study on Masters-level courses, or MPhil and PhD research degrees.
