Subject

Electrical and electronic engineering

Electronic Engineering has advanced the convenience and sensory experience of our lives; providing services and entertainment at our fingertips wherever we go. Progress insists products must become thinner, lighter and faster with sharper images, better sound quality and more memory which is why electronic engineers are researching and developing new machines to replace the ones we now fill our homes and pockets with.

These engineers are also helping us to live longer, safer lives with exciting progress in medical equipment and gadgets that sense invisible dangers like carbon monoxide.

Career choices for electronic engineers are plentiful and varied. Opportunities exist in a wide-range of industries, such as telecommunications, bioengineering, manufacturing, military services, aerospace and service industries.

Exeter’s Electronics programme kick-starts your engineering journey by immersing you in all the disciplines as well as giving you strong foundations in electronics and transferable skills. Engineers rarely work alone in their chosen field so we believe multi-disciplinary experience and teamwork equips you better for the interaction necessary to succeed in the workplace.

A career in electronics opens many doors, demands varied knowledge and requires excellent communication skills. Here at Exeter we aim to provide you with all these aspects; moulding you into an innovative and adaptable engineer.

Why choose Electronic Engineering at Exeter?
•This degree is professionally accredited under licence from the Engineering Council. Visit the Careers tab for further information.
•Our multidisciplinary first year encourages you to explore other engineering disciplines, such as civil and mechanical engineering; broadening your skill-base.
•You will gain hands-on practical experience in designing and constructing electronic systems using computer simulation and practical laboratory work.
•Our staff capitalise on their strong links with industry to help you gain paid work placements that credit your degree and to involve companies directly with your projects.
•This cutting-edge programme is constantly adapting to encompass new electronics technology, such as phase change materials and electronic paper.
•Our academic staff are conducting world-leading research in memory technology and biomedical electronics, so you will keep your finger on the pulse of the latest advances.

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.

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?
