Overview

The  Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Hons) programme at Glasgow Caledonian University   provides you with the necessary skills and experience that will enable you to take your place in the fastpaced world of electrical and electronic engineering as a creator of next generation, intelligent, connected devices and systems.

Have you ever wondered what mobiles and tablets will be like in the future? How can we use satellites to better our lives? How can we help people by advancing medical devices? What will next generation cars and transportation systems look like? How can robots do things better? What sustainable energy sources are possible? Where can we go with space exploration? These are some of the questions that electronic industries are asking as well, so you are not alone and you are heading in the right direction. The first two years provides students with basic electrical and electronic engineering skills and in the more advanced years you can select options within specialist areas. Wherever possible we employ hands-on project work to help you develop your practical and problem-solving skills.
