Electrical engineering at Sheffield combines rigorous academic study with plenty of practical experience. Working on projects with other students and with industry partners is part of the curriculum. Another major advantage is that you’re not tied to the degree you register for. If you want to, you can switch to any other undergraduate course in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering after your second year. We work closely with the biggest names in industry on game-changing research. So you can expect first-rate facilities, including state-of-the-art teaching space, labs and industry-standard equipment. Both the Rolls-Royce Centre for Advanced Machines and Drives, and the Sheffield-Siemens Wind Power Research Centre are based here in the department. All our courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology. The MEng meets all the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Our graduates work for companies including Airbus UK, Arup, EDF Energy, EON, Ericsson, National Grid, Nokia, Rolls-Royce, Shell and Siemens.
Forget northern grit Sheffield is in the heart of a vibrant, student-friendly city mixed with halls in leafy suburbs on the edge of the Peak District. A red brick with a thoroughly modern outlook, an award-winning Students' Union complete with 47 sports clubs and more than 250 societies - and a 24-hour library makes for The Full Monty of a student experience.
