About

Why study the BEng/MEng in Electronic Engineering at Middlesex University?

Electronic Engineering at Middlesex is available as either a three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) and a four-year Master of Engineering (MEng).

As part of our suite of Design Engineering courses, the Electronic Engineering degrees produce professional and competent multi-disciplinary engineers specialise in analogue and digital electronic systems. You will design and build complex electronic circuits and systems-on-a-chip using a range of methods and software tools, applying a systems engineering approach tproblem-solvingng.

To support your career success, you will build a professional portfolio of work throughout your degree and receive regular guest lectures and project feedback from industry professionals, with the option of spending a year on industry placement.

Flexible programme design

Our suite of Design Engineering courses share a common first year of study, which enable students to experience all aspects of engineering. Depending on your interests, you can then continue with the Electronic Engineering degree or transfer to one of these specialist honours programmes:

  • Design Engineering - Design and implementation of digital systems
  • Mechatronics - Design of electro-mechanical systems using computer control aspects
  • Robotics - Analysing and developing robotics systems

Course highlights

  • You will be encouraged to enter prestigious design engineering competitions to enhance your experience and career prospects
  • All the essential software needed to study the course is provided, including LabVIEW, SolidWorks and STEP-7
  • You will extend your industry knowledge through our series of weekly guest lectures delivered by some of the UKs leading design experts and companies
  • A year-long work placement is available as part of the course
  • If you apply for our four-year MEng course you will gain a masters qualification as soon as you successfully complete your undergraduate degree
  • Whichever pathway you choose, you can change to another after your first year. You can also change onto the main Design Engineering pathway after your second year if desired
  • As a student of this course, you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.

Career

This course opens the door to a varied career in an exciting industry. Our degree prepares you for work in a number of areas including design engineering, electrical and mechanical engineering. We encourage you to develop a commercial approach to design engineering via supported live projects with industrial partners.

As a BEng/MEng Electronics graduate, you will have excellent career prospects; the range of potential employers will be vast across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. You can also choose to continue onto further study.

Below are just a few examples of the types of careers that you could pursue after graduating with us:

Design Engineer

A Design Engineer role includes researching and developing ideas for new products and systems, and improving those that already exist. Design Engineers work in a wide range of industries on a range of products and services.

CAD Technician

A Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) Technician uses software to develop design plans such as floor plans, buildings plans and exhibition layouts. CAD Technicians may also work on product designs which are then sent to engineers to create prototypes.

Electrical Engineer

Electrical Engineers work on designing and developing electrical products and components. This can include electrical machinery, control systems and equipment in a number of industries from transport, to telecommunications, to the armed forces.

Mechanical Engineer

A Mechanical Engineer works on the design, development and maintenance of mechanical components, systems and machinery. A Mechanical Engineer can work in a range of industries where mechanical systems are used.

Work placements

Work placements increase your success in the job market – as well as being a fantastic experience. You can further develop your interpersonal skills, build your confidence, and make contact with industry leaders. By making a good impression during your placement year, you greatly increase your chances of securing a job with the company after graduation. Research shows that 70% of placements result in a graduate job offer.
