The Electrical and Electronic Engineering Sandwich degree at Queen's University Belfast covers a wide spectrum of topics, from micro-electronic chip design and manufacturing to power generation and distribution. Rapid advances in fields such as telecommunications, computer firmware, hardware and networking, medical electronics, security, control and robotics and renewable energy systems are also reflected in the course structure.
Globally there is a critical shortage of experienced and talented engineers. This means that Electronics and Electrical Engineering graduates have excellent career prospects across a broad range of sectors.
At Queen’s we work closely with future employers to enhance these career prospects and placement experiences are embedded into the course. This allows students to engage with and learn from real world challenges from day one. This combination of academic theory and application forms a core part of the curriculum and vastly improves our graduate employability rates.
There is a shortage of electrical and electronic engineers, not only locally in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK, but worldwide, so employment prospects are excellent. The employment rate for graduates of this degree from Queen's (2013) was 100% (percentage employed in a graduate level job within 6 months of graduating).
Studying for an Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree at Queen’s will assist you in developing the core skills and employment-related experiences that are valued by employers, professional organisations and academic institutions. Graduates from this degree at Queen’s are well regarded by many employers (local, national and international) and over half of all graduate jobs are now open to graduates of any discipline, including Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
