Course description

Summary: This degree embraces a broad spectrum of electrical and electronic engineering activities ranging from digital electronics and communications to electrical machines and power distribution. Course details: This broad base enables you to gain employment in a wide range of manufacturing sectors but is particularly useful for employment in traditional electrical, electronic or communications industries. The programme is built around a set of discipline-based threads. These threads include analogue and digital electronics (including microprocessors), control systems, communications systems, and electrical machines and power systems - which form the basis of a number of modules that run through all three years of the programme. Other modules, such as the mathematics, skills and project modules, support these threads and provide a more rounded (industrially relevant) educational experience.Our accredited BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme produces industry-ready graduates and meets the requirements of the Institution of Engineering Technology.According to information provided by Prospects (the official graduate careers website - 2011) chartered electronics/electrical engineers earn typically between £35,000 and £50,000, with highly experienced engineers earning £65,000 plus. After the course: Electrical and electronic engineers find employment in almost every sector of modern industry, including oil and gas, manufacturing, aerospace, communications, power generation and many others. Starting salaries for graduate electrical/electronic engineers start at around £25,000, increasing to around £65,000 when a senior level is reached (prospects.ac.uk 2016).

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.
