The Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme at the Oxford Brookes University is taught at the college and will prepare you for a range of technical and management careers in electrical/electronic engineering.

This course consists of lectures, seminars, project work, and directed activities to promote independent learning along with workshops, and tutorials. Work-based learning is also an important part of the programme and will be linked in with core modules.

The aim of this Foundation Degree is to provide a rational, structured and coherent programme of study that offers an alternative pathway to well-motivated and skilled engineers within the region in which Abingdon & Witney College is situated.


The course will also equip learners’ with the broad knowledge and ability to apply current technology to existing products and designs as well as developing new ones. It will enable learners to have a sound understanding of Engineering Principles and the skills necessary to communicate them to others and develop them into finished products that meet customer expectations and agreed specifications.

The course will develop the learner’s ability to reflect on their own work evaluating what worked, what can be improved and how the overall process can be changed for the better. 

It will also enable learners that are employed to make an immediate professional contribution in their work environment through skills learnt and in particular via a work related project and develop the learners’ skills, personal qualities and attitudes essential for reflective learning and practice leading to successful performance in working life through the integrated, but explicit, curriculum and assessment.
