About MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering

One of the broadest engineering disciplines, electrical and electronic engineering uses cutting-edge technology to address some of the major concerns of the modern world. There is growing demand for skilled graduates to work in industries such as consumer electronics, alternative energy and transport, medical engineering and communications.

Years one and two provide a strong grounding in mathematics, computing, analogue and digital electronics, communications, electromagnetics, power electronics and control. In the third and fourth years you will choose from a range of optional units, which means you can focus on anything from electrical power systems to electronic communications.

Year three includes a group design project, and in the fourth year you will undertake an individual research project.

The MEng course provides full accreditation for the qualification of Chartered Engineer. The first two years are common with the BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and transfer between courses is possible until the end of year two, subject to satisfactory performance.

Through our close collaboration with industry, you will benefit from excellent employment prospects. Recent graduate employers include Intel, the BBC, Dyson, Jaguar Land Rover, Siemens, Hewlett-Packard, EDF Energy and many others.
