Subjects

Electronic engineering

Computer science

This is a joint course between the departments of Computer Science and Electrical and Electronic Engineering, designed to meet the needs of the computing and electronics industries. The course includes a year overseas studying at a university in English. Entry is by transfer from year two of the MEng in Computer Science and Electronics.

The course provides full accreditation for the qualification of Chartered Engineer.

The Bristol area is home to a range of thriving and world-leading semiconductor design companies who contribute to programme design as well as hosting industry-based projects.

The first two years are identical to those of the MEng in Computer Science and Electronics. You will spend your third year overseas following a similar curriculum to that taught in Bristol. The fourth year allows you to tailor your degree to suit your interests through your choice of individual project and options subjects.

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.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is a newly-classified subject area for this kind of data, so we don’t currently have very much information to display or analyse yet. The subject is linked to important and growing computing industries, and over time we can expect more students to study them — there could be opportunities that open up for graduates in these subjects as the economy develops over the next few years.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

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.

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?
