Subject

Electrical and electronic engineering

**This accredited course provides a direct pathway to becoming a Chartered Engineer. It will prepare you for a rewarding career developing the technology that touches every aspect of our lives.**

From aerospace engineering, health care and mobile phones to the growing need for renewable energy solutions, electronic and electrical systems are constantly evolving. So the demand for talented engineers continues to rise.

- We were named among the top 10 British universities in the learning resources category for this subject area (National Student Survey 2018, HEIs), with a score of 93%

- Our electrical and electronic engineering courses were the first in the UK to be accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET – formerly IEE)

- Graduating from this course provides a direct pathway to becoming a Chartered Engineer – a benchmark in the profession

- You'll use the latest equipment and techniques under the guidance of experts

- The EngineeringUK organisation highlighted a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers within the engineering sector in Britain

Engineers and technologists are needed across all industries. So when you graduate, you'll find varied, challenging and rewarding careers developing the technology that touches every aspect of our lives.

Extend your studies by spending a year on an industrial placement and studying for a Masters level degree.

**Official Team GB partners**

Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it.

What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership.

We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else.

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?
