Do you want to lead society towards a more energy-efficient future, enhance your business acumen, and further develop your technical and design ability? The MEng course develops your communication and entrepreneurial skills, and prepares you for a range of high-end careers in electrical and electronic engineering. This course, which meets the full academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status, is accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). You will develop highly practical skills and learn through doing. You'll access one of the largest undergraduate laboratory spaces in the country, which you can use to further your own understanding of communications, electronics and renewable energy technologies. You will benefit from free IET membership (whilst at University) as the University is an IET Academic Partner. You will further your knowledge with a placement after successfully completing year two. Benefit from outstanding teaching: in the 2016 National Student Survey 91 per cent of our final year students said that “The course is intellectually stimulating”. Draw on our strong industry links and benefit from industry participation in course development, delivery and project sponsorship. Take advantage of our flexible course, allowing you to switch between electronics and robotics until your final year, as your interests develop. Immerse yourself in a degree accredited by the Institution for Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Further your knowledge with a placement after successfully completing stage 2 or between the final two years of the MEng course. Access one of the largest undergraduate laboratory spaces in the country, which you can use to further your own understanding of communications, electronics and renewable energy technologies.
In the first year you'll use our well-equipped laboratories to develop your knowledge and practical problem solving skills. From the start of your studies you'll find that there is an emphasis on learning by doing, and group project work will enable you to develop your problem solving and communication skills. An integrating project will encompass business and technical skills, and focus on activities that are typical of a start-up company. You'll develop a greater understanding of underlying engineering principles and circuit design methods in the second year. Again, we place an emphasis on team work and you'll have the opportunity to do both group and individual presentations of your projects. You'll use industrial standard software tools for design and simulation in preparation for your final year individual project or for your optional placement year. Year 3 is an exciting opportunity to develop an individual project. You'll consolidate your knowledge, explore and evaluate new technologies, and demonstrate your communication skills in the oral and written presentation of your project. Previous project have included a landmine detection system, CreatoBot (a modular robotic system) and DishDynamics (Global Ordinance And Targeting System [GOATS]). Your final year includes additional technical modules and a large interdisciplinary design project. Past projects have included designing a product that involved a local company and a central government department, the challenge was to build a prototype system, which was showcased at the Project Open Day. This project will most likely result in the formation of a real company (later in the year). You also have the possibility of continuing your studies to MSc level in the same academic year. The modules shown for this course or programme are those being studied by current students, or expected new modules. Modules are subject to change depending on year of entry.
