Electronic & electrical engineering is at the heart of everything we do - from renewable energy and smart grids, to high-speed fibre optic broadband, digital sound and vision, and internet security.

Electronic & electrical engineers are the people who:

  • design, build, operate and maintain our global power systems, our telecommunications networks and computing infrastructure
  • develop electronic systems essential to industry, health and entertainment

Their aim is to find innovative and progressive solutions to today’s global challenges whether that’s technologies to deliver clean energy, systems to improve audio and image quality on your phone, tablet and laptop, or techniques to improve digital imagery in medical devices to aid diagnosis.

All our courses have full accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council, which means you can become a ‘chartered engineer’ – a must for most employers.


Studying Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University of Strathclyde  opens many doors. With two million new employees needed in the UK engineering sector by 2020, you’ll have great career opportunities.

The breadth of this degree ensures that graduates will have the technical knowledge and understanding across the entire electronic & electrical engineering spectrum to consider careers in a diverse range of sectors including:

  • telecommunications
  • consumer & electronics design
  • automotive & aerospace industries
  • information technology
  • finance & banking
  • electricity supply industry
  • oil & gas
