It is difficult to imagine the modern world without the all-pervasive impact of electrical and electronic engineering. All modern communication systems, from simple direct dial connections to global mobile phone networks and even interstellar radio signals are all based on the fundamental principles you will learn on this degree programme. Likewise, control and instrumentation techniques are essential aspects of modern technology, and smart grids, micro-power generation and sustainability, are very important features of any electrical or electronic engineer's work.
This programme will introduce you to all aspects, from the fundamental properties of electromagnetic waves to the design of advanced communication networks. The Faculty of Engineering and Science has a total of 3000m² of specialist and integrated engineering laboratories enabling you to work with many industry-standard systems and technologies, preparing you for many career opportunities in this exciting and ever-expanding field.
