In the first two years, there is a lot of lectures and labs work to keep you busy plus work that you need to do in your own time to consolidate what you have learned. If you don't do this, then you are likely to get a lower grade. The mix of electronics and electrical is good as it gives you an idea of which field you would like to go into and also gives you more options for graduate work. All modules are detailed with their own specification which informs you of what is offered, such as detailed feedback after coursework which you can use for future courseworks or exams in the same module. Lecturers are very helpful if you attend their lectures and try to understand what they've said before coming to ask for help rather than not attending lectures at all and then asking. You are able to do an exchange year with UNITECH or ERASMUS during your third year if you are on the MEng programme. You also have the option to choose optional modules in your third and fourth year, within and outside your own course, such as languages. We have a strong link for renewable energy with our own research division called CREST which has both Loughborough students as well as visiting students working there.
