The first two years are common with most of the other degrees in the department, normally allowing you to transfer between them up to the start of your third year.
Years one and two provide a grounding in mathematics, computing, analogue electronic circuits and components, communications, electromagnetics, power electronics and control. This underpins more advanced study in your final year. Practical work runs throughout the degree. In the final year you will undertake a solo project, and will have the opportunity to take optional subjects to suit your interests.
BEng degrees cover some of the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status, which denotes a professional engineer.
