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. 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.


With the broad range of skills acquired from Electrical Engineering  programme from the 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 degree has been accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology  under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).
