However, you are also not limited to a career in engineering, with many employers actively seeking engineers for their mixture of numerical ability and practical problem solving skills. One day per week is timetabled for practical work in our well-equipped modern laboratories during the first two years. In the final year you will choose from a wide range of projects that is either linked to research work or has some industrial relevance.

In the first year of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering with a Year in Industry (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool , subjects covered range from digital electronics and electronics circuits through to electromagnetism and electromechanics. A similar range of modules are covered in the second year. In the final year you will be able to choose a specialisation from ‘electrical engineering’, ‘electrical and electronic engineering’, ‘electronic engineering’, or ‘electronic and communication engineering’. ‘

Electrical engineering’ is not simply about producing and transmitting electrical energy, it is also about how it is used. In both its transmission and usage there are significant and increasing challenges facing electrical engineers; many of these are related to sustainability and the environment.
