Additional Costs

Specialist Costs

Compulsory Estimate: £130

Optional Estimate: £800

How are these costs calculated?

Students often choose to buy a laptop or tablet for use on campus (approx. £800), however there are PCs on campus and students can also borrow laptops. Students may need a smart phone or wireless device to participate in interactive class quizzes, etc. All personal protection equipment (PPE) for labs and a basic toolkit is provided by the School. Laboratory and workshop consumables are also provided. All reports, etc. for assessment are submitted as electronic files except the Level 6 7 Project Report for which printing and binding costs (up to 50 pages) will be borne by the students. Costs of all materials for prototype building and the printing of posters for Employability events and graduate year books will be paid by the School.

Placement Costs

How are these costs calculated?

Students may have to contribute to the cost of optional social trips organised by Student Societies. The costs of compulsory industrial visits (if any) are paid by the School or by sponsorship secured from the Professional bodies (PSRBs). There is the option of taking a placement year. Costs vary hugely between countries and areas, so it is very important to research costs well ahead of time and budget accurately. Students are expected to cover the costs of attending placement interviews and any additional travel/accommodation costs incurred to take up optional short term or sandwich placements.

Professional Costs

How are these costs calculated?

The School of Engineering will cover the costs associated with student/affiliate membership of one PSRB. Students will be expected to contribute to the cost of any additional memberships or enhanced PSRB membership status and to the cost of any optional professional accreditation courses in the use of software packages, etc.

Other Costs

Optional Estimate: £60

How are these costs calculated?

Costs for student-led projects will be paid subject to approved business cases submitted by the students under the supervision of academic staff. Artefacts built for projects normally remain the property of the School, but students may be offered the opportunity to purchase them for the cost of the materials used.

This is an integrated four-year  (or five-year with sandwich) undergraduate Masters course which provides the specialist knowledge and expertise required for a professional career in electrical and electronic engineering. Project-based learning in all years, including live industry-led projects, will help you develop the transferable skills and the multi-disciplinary awareness so highly prized by industry.

Year 1 covers engineering science, applicable mathematics and practical and project skills in electrical and electronic engineering. Year 2 will further develop your scientific and analytical skills through study of electrical energy systems, control engineering, electronic systems design and engineering mathematics. You will take on a specialist role in a group project and start detailed planning of your career. Specialist options in the third and final years will give you experience of the latest engineering challenges faced by industry and society. You will also work in a multidisciplinary team on a major project challenge.

The five-year sandwich route provides the opportunity for you to spend your third year on industrial placement, either within the UK or further afield.

Your career prospects after the course

There is a national shortage of graduate engineers, making our graduates highly sought after by employers.

There is also a high demand for design engineers and product designers in small to medium enterprises.

Engineering graduates enjoy one of the lowest unemployment rates and one of the best starting salaries.

Our recent graduates occupy a wide variety of roles in engineering and design consultancies, manufacturing, aircraft design and manufacture, automotive and railway engineering, steel manufacturing, naval engineering, water companies and the power and nuclear fuels industries.

Employers outside of engineering sectors also recognise the skills and problem-solving capacity of the engineering graduate, and there may be opportunities in sales, commissioning, finance, teaching and management as well as roles managing technology to support a range of organisations.

94%

In 2014, over 94% of our graduates went directly into work or further study within 6 months of graduation
