As an electrical engineer, you'll have the opportunity to help build a more sustainable future. Electrical engineers design and develop new technologies to generate and process power at the Electrical Engineering course at University of Nottingham.


Key facts

The equipment they design is used to distribute electrical energy (including 'Smart Grid' technologies for renewable energy sources), and also supports many manufacturing industries. Electrical engineering technologies now enable more-electric and full electric transport such as hybrid and electric vehicles, trains, ships and even aircraft.

All our electrical and electronic courses have the same content in year one and two so by year three, you can choose the topics that interest you. You will develop design and problem solving skills through laboratory based projects, working individually and in small teams.


With the broad range of skills acquired from this  Electrical Engineering course at University of Nottingham, you will have excellent career prospects in areas including power distribution, future transport technologies (aerospace, rail, automotive) and industrial process control and automation.


This course is accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
