Electronic and Electrical Engineering encompasses the design and utilisation of a broad range of vital circuits and systems that fulfil society's needs in electrical and electronic technologies. Electronic Engineering covers analogue and digital design with integrated circuits applied to robotics, instrumentation, computer and communication systems. Electrical Engineering involves power generation and transmission, electrical motors and renewable energy. In years 1 and 2 you will study a variety of topics in electronic and electrical engineering, with introductions to communications and computer engineering. To put into practical application what you have learnt in lectures, you will be involved in challenging team projects to build underwater robots and armoured sumo wrestling robots at year 2. In the later stages of the course, you will have the the opportunity to specialise in two areas from the following: Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Communications Engineering and Computer Engineering. This allowance for specialisation has been designed to further enhance your employability.
Robert Gordon University is a leader when it comes to graduate employability, with an impressive 97.1% of our graduates working or in further study within six months of graduation.
