Electronics have revolutionised the world as we know it with the development of devices that are smaller, faster and more powerful than ever before.
On this course you will be at the forefront of this revolution developing practical electronic engineering solutions for the very latest challenges facing electronic engineering departments and companies. For example, you could be designing components for telecommunication and data communication devices, researching acoustics and nanotechnology solutions or assessing innovations in the defence and aerospace industry. This keeps your knowledge and skills up-to-date in the rapidly developing field of electronic engineering.
In the School of Science and Technology we pride ourselves on our hands-on approach to teaching and giving you real-world experience. With our brand-new engineering courses we are taking these experiences to the next level with a revolutionary approach to teaching engineering.
We are partnering with industry every step of the way to ensure that you become the very best engineer of the future by working with all types and sizes of engineering organisations. In our innovative approach, you'll spend a large proportion of your time each year applying theory to live, industry-led projects. You'll also have the opportunity to apply for a year-long work placement to boost your industry knowledge even further.
With the focus firmly on problem-solving and live project work, we aim to give you three to four years of industry experience before you graduate. Who wouldn't want that on their CV?

As is normal practice for new engineering degrees, the University will seek accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) for our programmes when they have students in the final year (2019/20). This accreditation will ensure the content of our courses matches the IET benchmark awarded to high-quality programmes that provide ideal preparation for aspiring professional engineers. The accreditation, if granted, will be backdated to include the first intake years.
