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.
