The Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (Hons) programme at The University of Strathclyde covers key areas of both electrical and mechanical engineering reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of modern engineering. There's a demand for graduates with expertise within and across the boundaries of both disciplines.

Visit the official programme website for more information


The combination of mechanical, electrical, electronic, computing, measurement and control elements are now an important part of most modern engineering systems and are essential to meet new challenges in engineering innovation.

Examples include energy generation, hybrid petrol/electric vehicles, aircraft design, satellite technology, robotic systems and technology for sustainable environment.

The Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (Hons) programme at The University of Strathclyde  has dual accreditation by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers meaning that you will be able to capitalise on career opportunities in both or either subject.


Dual accreditation by the IET and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers means you’ll be able to capitalise on career opportunities.

There's a growing demand for graduates who are technically skilled in both the electrical & mechanical engineering. This can be clearly seen in the diverse range of career opportunities and sectors, where expertise in both subjects is essential:

  • aeronautical engineering – design and operation of sensor and control systems and fly-by-wire technology
  • automotive engineering – electronic performance management systems and pollution-free vehicles
  • renewable energy sources using wind or wave power
  • robotic systems for manufacturing and remote handling
  • satellite and space exploration where efficient power sources, computing and control systems are essential
  • marine engineering applications, including electric propulsion systems, radar and sonar systems
