About Electronic Engineering at University of Portsmouth


Electronic engineering powers the world we live in today. From games consoles, smartphones and fitness trackers to life-saving medical systems, cyber security and self-driving cars.

On this Electronic Engineering degree, you’ll learn to design, develop and manufacture electronic equipment and devices that could have a significant impact on the world. Develop your knowledge of the theory and design of electronics while putting theory into practice in our extensive facilities.

Electronic technology evolves rapidly. Be part of the future on a course that opens doors to a career as a professional electronics engineer.

You can study this course as a 3-year Bachelor's degree (BEng).

When you finish the BEng course successfully, you'll meet the educational requirements for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status. Once you've met the work experience requirements for IEng status, you can progress to Chartered Engineer status (CEng) with further study and experience.

IEng and CEng status demonstrate your expertise and can include benefits such as improved career prospects and earning potential.

What you’ll experience

  • Use the latest equipment for analysing and measuring electronics, including logic analysers, spectrum analysers, digital scopes and multi-function generators
  • Work with analogue and digital components such as microprocessors, microcontrollers and programmable devices
  • Use experimental kits, such as ServoSET servo-mechanism (which helps you learn how to stabilise systems) and superheterodyne radio receivers (which help you understand the principles of radio receiver operation)
  • Get student membership of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, at no cost to you – giving you access to practical, technical and career-related resources, and opportunities to build links with prospective employers

Work experience and career planning

Get experience while you study with support to find part-time jobs, volunteering opportunities and work experience. Towards the end of your degree and after graduation, you'll get 1-to-1 support from our Graduate Recruitment Consultancy to find your perfect role.

Placement opportunities

After your second year, you can do an optional work placement year to get valuable longer-term work experience in the industry.

A placement year gives you an advantage over other graduates who may understand theory but won't have the experience of applying their learning to a working environment. We’ll help you secure a work placement that fits your aspirations, and you’ll get mentoring and support throughout the year.

Previous students have taken placement roles such as:

  • aerospace engineer
  • industrial placement hardware engineer
  • undergraduate electrical engineer (research and development)

They've completed placements at organisations including:

  • LiveLink
  • Leonardo
  • Johnston Sweepers
  • MBDA
