Studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Cardiff University puts you at the centre of a vibrant and fast-moving discipline of relevance to industries such as electronics, information technology, manufacturing, energy generation and supply, transport, and communications.
This course is reviewed annually with input from our industrial partners to ensure that the modules taught are at the cutting edge and reflect the current state of the industry.
Note that if Chartered status is important to you, an MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route than the BEng course.

- a fast-track towards attaining Chartered Engineer status with the Institution of Engineering and Technology if you choose the MEng course
- the opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree option
- the opportunity to study abroad at a partner institution for one semester if you choose the relevant MEng (International) degree option

Being at the forefront of engineering research means Cardiff has excellent links with industry.
