As global demand for energy grows, governments and companies are increasingly seeking to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. This Electronics and Renewable Energy Systems course from University of Leeds allows you to study electronic engineering alongside specialist topics in the field of renewable energy systems to meet these challenges head-on.


You’ll gain a foundation in the mathematical and scientific principles that underpin electronic engineering and core topics like circuit theory and communications systems. Then you’ll build your knowledge of areas such as power systems, smart grid systems, power electronics for renewable systems control and energy conversion.

You’ll gain extensive hands-on learning in power electronics, electric drives, and solar/wind power test benches in our renewable energy study centre. Practical laboratory classes and project work in each year of the course will also allow you to apply your knowledge to real life work situations, developing your knowledge and skills for a variety of exciting careers.

Career opportunities

A Electronics and Renewable Energy Systems course from University of Leeds and the experience you'll gain here will give you the edge to find the career you want. Your course will give you the experience and knowledge that employers are looking for to help you secure a graduate job.

University of Leeds students are among the top 5 most targeted by top employers according to The Graduate Market 2021, High Fliers Research.

Careers in this area are as diverse as renewable energy systems, power generation, electrical machines (such as the switched reluctance motor pioneered here in Leeds), industrial control systems (e.g. for automotive assembly), power electronics and electric drive systems (e.g. for hybrid petrolelectric vehicles).

The course is particularly suited to careers in power electronics and renewable energy systems. The employment prospects for graduates are excellent, as all countries around the world seek to make systems more energy efficient and to re-engineer a “smart grid” that integrates renewable energy sources. You could also pursue a career in the automotive industry, as electric vehicles are the subject of intense research and development activity.

Because this course maintains a strong element of traditional electronic engineering, you could pursue a career in a wide variety of industry sectors such as communications.
