Heat, light, power – we need them all to live. And we need electronic and electrical engineers to make them work for us. This course could help you develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to become an electronic or electrical engineer and take your first steps in your chosen career. Creating, designing and managing the systems that keep things running is vital in society. This course aims to give you a thorough understanding of how it all works. We look at the generation, distribution, application and control of electrical energy. Your studies could get you investigating some fascinating areas. Sustainable power generation, infrastructures and electric motor performance and control – we’ll cover a wide range of topics. During your studies you’ll have every opportunity to explore and understand the principal aspects of electronic engineering. You’ll be taught by professional engineers, many of whom have years of industry experience. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. Once you graduate, you could become registered as an Incorporated Engineer. The course could also lead on to you gaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status following further study.
