About Electrical and Electronic Engineering at University of Derby

During this course we apply the fact that electricity can be used to transport and deliver energy. It lights our homes, runs many of our domestic gadgets and keeps the wheels of industry turning. It is such an established and reliable part of our lives that we often take it for granted, yet it remains a fascinating and developing field of study.

Electrical engineering deals with the study of motors and generators and their control, power transmission and distribution systems and the principles that underlie them. In electronic engineering we apply electricity to carry, process and store information. This is the driving force behind today's information revolution, and forms the basis of everyday devices like the mobile phone and the computer, as well as a huge range of systems used in commerce and industry. You'll discover how electronics depends heavily on semiconductor technology, and that while electrical and electronic engineering depend on the same fundamental scientific laws, they diverge widely beyond these basics.

We've developed this part time course for students who are already working in a relevant area. The exciting thing about the course is that your employer becomes a partner in your education and you continue to study in your workplace. You'll take some work based learning modules, which will be tailored to the needs of you and your workplace.

At University you'll learn in a challenging, stimulating and creative environment. You'll also benefit from working closely with students on other related courses, covering areas including multimedia, music, and live event technology.

  • You'll be trained in the technologies of electrical and electronic systems, preparing you for cutting edge work.
  • You'll get a broad introduction to the practical and theoretical aspects of the subject.
  • It's more than just engineering - you'll develop skills in management and communication too.
  • You'll study part time and so can fit it around your work.
  • Employable Graduates

What students think about University of Derby

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”

    Testimonial from Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management, student at University of Derby

    Sumedha found that modules were covered in great detail; smaller classes are beneficial because they enable the students to have the lecturer’s personal attention. “Lecturers at Derby are extremely supportive and very friendly and my class mates are truly international. Being exposed to various cultures here in Derby while studying has already helped me and it will continue to help me when I start working in an international environment.”
