Course description

Our MEng in Electronics and Electrical Engineering with Management is a broad-based programme where students learn about a wide range of topics in the early years covering the main areas where potential employers expect graduate engineers to have skills, including important management themes. This is matched in later years by the ability to select optional courses based upon interest and emerging career direction, with further management choices. Learning is supported at every stage by project laboratories where students apply their skills to practical problems. Many of our students undertake their major MEng project in 4th and 5th years in industry while working as, and receiving the salary of, a graduate engineer. Our programmes are guided by our Industrial Advisory Board, to ensure our graduates continue to acquire the skills required of a professional graduate engineer. The MEng in Electronics and Electrical Engineering with Management is accredited by the IET and we are founder members of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF). Our own industrially sponsored scholarships are available to students with at least three A grades at A level or Advanced Higher, or at least four A grades at Higher (including maths). Students on this can also apply for scholarships through UKESF.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The recession has made things difficult for graduates in this subject and you would normally expect a lower unemployment rate – but most graduates do get jobs quite quickly after university, and starting salaries are pretty good. 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 oil and gas industries, electronics and the car and aerospace industries. 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.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Management degrees are a popular choice, with more than 6,000 graduates in 2012. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year – not just those within the finance industry, but also community work, IT, marketing and PR and even surveying. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
