Entry requirements


A level

A,A,A

AAA including Maths and either Computing, Computer Science, Electronics, Engineering, Further Maths or Physics.

Not accepted - Foundation entry only.

We consider applicants offering Pre-U Principal Subjects or a combination of the Pre-U and A levels, provided a minimum of three subjects overall are taken. We recognise the benefit of the Global Perspectives and Research (GPR) course in developing independent study and research skills. While we would consider this as evidence of motivation to study a specific subject in more depth, we do not generally include it as part of our offer conditions. However, it may be used to further consider an application upon receipt of final examination results.

We recognise the benefit of the Extended Project in developing independent research and critical thinking skills. We would consider this as evidence of motivation to study a specific subject in more depth, and while we do not generally include it as part of our offer conditions, it may be used to further consider an application upon receipt of final examination results. www.lboro.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/apply/entry-requirements/

Subject

Electrical and electronic engineering

Electronic and Electrical Engineering is integral to and embedded in the smooth functioning of our everyday lives.

From mobile phones and computing through to household gadgets, healthcare equipment, automotive and aerospace technology, renewables and on to transport infrastructure, defence and utility provision.

From the light bulb to the internet, it is impossible to imagine a world without electricity and electronics. A modern integrated circuit may contain several billion miniaturised transistors in a few square centimetres and is capable of doing the most extraordinary things.

Our long-established Electronics and Electrical Engineering IET accredited course is very well regarded by employers. It will provide a thorough grounding in the subjects required to invent, design, apply and integrate electrical and electronic components and systems in a range of different industrial sectors.

Modules

For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.

Assessment methods

Lecture based modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and formal examinations taken at the end of each semester. Project module assessments require written reports and technical presentations, preparing you for your subsequent career. The proportion of coursework assessment is approximately 30% to 50% depending on degree course, semester/year and optional modules.

Extra funding

All of our courses have an established reputation with employers in industry. Companies, therefore, target the School with sandwich year opportunities and a number of companies offer sponsorship, for which there is intense competition. Students seeking sponsorship are urged to consult publications such as CRAC and Engineering Opportunities.

We are a member of the IET's Power Academy, and the UK Electronics Skills Foundation, both engineering scholarship funds supporting undergraduate students in electrical, electronic and power engineering at leading UK universities. As well as this we are a member of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation The UKESF Scholarship Scheme connects undergraduates to leading employers in the Electronics sector and provides an annual bursary, paid summer work placements and a paid-for residential workshop. We also broker a range of sponsored places from leading companies such as BAE Systems, Frazer- Nash Consultancy and Jaguar Land Rover.

Students studying many of our Engineering degree courses and intending to take up a career in the Armed Forces or Civil Service may be eligible for financial support under the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme.

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.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

Have a question about this info? Learn more here

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

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?
