Overview

You will undertake a team design project in which the complete design process of an item of electronic equipment is carried out, from the initial specification to the completed product.

You will study the same courses in the first three years whether you are on the BEng or MEng degree programme. Both embed creativity to develop world changing engineers.

In your first year of the Electronics and Electrical Engineering course at the University of Glasgow, you will take a wide-ranging curriculum which includes courses in analogue and digital electronics, mathematics, dynamics, materials, thermodynamics and engineering skills. These courses are supported by individual and group project work and laboratory work. This interdisciplinary approach, favoured by industry, also makes it possible to switch to most other engineering disciplines at the end of year 1 should you wish to do so.
