Electrical and electronic engineering

Please be aware that this course will be taught at our Chelmsford Campus from September 2019. If you are applying for advanced entry to the course then this may vary, so please contact us for further information on your study location.

Modern life depends on electronics; from industry to the iPhone, they’re everywhere. In lectures and in our labs, you’ll learn to design, simulate and build a wide variety of electronic systems. Our course is CEng accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology, and meets the educational requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer. It's been validated to include an optional placement year in industry.

Our course will give you detailed knowledge of a branch of technology which is absolutely vital to our modern lifestyle. It will prepare you for a career at the cutting edge of technology development.

You’ll focus on the central topics in electronics while learning to design and build electronic systems. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop certain skills in more detail to specialise on an area of interest.

Take advantage of our state-of-the-art electronics and microelectronics laboratories, with support and guidance from our in-house team of technical experts. We use industry-standard software including the Xilinx ISE digital systems design software and National Instruments’ Multisim and Labview System Design Software and hardware platforms that feature the latest all programmable Zynq SoC FPGA circuits and ARM microcontrollers. You’ll also use a wide range of central computing and media facilities.

By the time you graduate, you’ll be a creative problem-solver and be able to design systems and components. You’ll also be able to consider the social, environmental and economic implications of different aspects of electronics.

All our students have the option of doing a year-long placement in industry between Year 2 and Year 3.

This programme is CEng accredited by the IET and fulfils the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer when presented with an accredited MSc. In addition, the programme meets the educational requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is one of the more popular areas to study engineering and there is not quite such a serious shortage of electrical engineers as there is of other engineering subjects - but there's still plenty of demand. The most common jobs are in telecommunications, electrical and electronic engineering, but there is some crossover with the computing industry, so many graduates start work in IT and computing jobs. At the moment, there's a particular demand for electrical engineers in the electronics, and the car and aerospace industries, and also in defence, and salaries can vary across the country depending on the industry you start in. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
