The Extended Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a suite of programmes which have a common foundation year, after which students specialise in the subjects of their choice. The first year provides solid training in engineering, computing principles, science and systems modelling, as well as the necessary background and skills needed to cope with the engineering degree programme that follows.

About

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.

This BEng Hons (Extended) degree programme is identical to the BEng Hons, but also has a foundation year and has a slightly lower entry tariff.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide you with the knowledge and skills relevant to a career as a professional engineer who can work effectively with current and future electrical and electronic engineering design, development and implementation methods
  • To support you in understanding the innovative and pioneering approaches in this field and to be able to apply them to the solution of real-world problems to develop new products and technologies
  • To help you acquire the knowledge and skills required to perform a variety of graduate level professional roles within electrical, electronic, control and communications engineering, including management roles.

Accreditation

This programme is accredited by IET.
