In your first year, you will take a wide-ranging curriculum which includes courses in analogue and digital electronics, mathematics, dynamics, materials, thermodynamics and engineering skills. These courses are supported by individual and group project work and laboratory work. This interdisciplinary approach, favoured by industry, also makes it easy to switch to most other engineering disciplines at the end of year 1 should you wish to do so.
YEARS 2 AND 3
The following two years will contain a core of compulsory subjects as well as optional subjects in business and management.
The core courses will give you a firm grounding in the knowledge and skills required of any professional electronics or electrical engineer, whether your career takes you to work with hydroelectric projects or wind farms, designing high-tech gadgets and communications devices or creating new electronic components at the nano-scale. These courses are augmented with practical construction and project work in each year: working both alone and in teams.
YEARS 4 AND 5
You will have a wide choice of technical options in fourth year. You will also gain expertise in professional subjects including economics, project organisation, environmental issues and safety. BEng students will complete a substantial individual project under the one-to-one supervision of a member of academic staff.
MEng students will have the opportunity to take part in a multidisciplinary integrated system design project instead of the individual project. You will learn the skills of project management and work alongside students of other engineering disciplines. In fifth year you will complete a six-month project abroad and then take further advanced technical subjects.
