Course description

Electronic and Computer Engineering at Brunel is part of our College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences. We are one of the largest disciplines in the university, with research contracts worth £7.5 million. Electronic equipment and products are a vital part of our daily lives, from mobile phones and computers to highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment used in hospitals and state-of-the-art fibre optic communications systems. Computers, telecommunication systems and consumer electronics are advancing at a fast pace. Electronic and microelectronic embedded systems are at the core of these developments and there is a rapidly growing demand for well-qualified scientists and engineers across electronic and computer engineering. Electronic and Electrical Engineering is a traditional and broad-based course which will develop you as a well-rounded engineer with a high level of analytical and engineering design skills. You’ll develop a sound knowledge of all aspects of electronic and electrical engineering and related areas and examine the future of electronics, microelectronics and computer systems. You’ll use the university’s well-resourced labs and facilities in electronics, sensors, computer systems, computer networks, signal processing. You’ll be taught in lectures, laboratory sessions, workshops and small group tutorials. You will also have one-to-one supervision for all your project work at each level.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
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.
