You can tailor your studies to suit you
Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will prepare you for a career in sectors such as renewable energy, transport, manufacturing, and construction.
From the aerospace and automotive sectors to telecommunications and power generation, engineers who are skilled in electrical and electronic engineering are in considerable demand across industry.
Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees offers flexible pathways to tailor your studies.
You can specialise by taking our individual degrees in Electrical Engineering and Electronic Engineering, which are accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).
Both specialist degrees partially meet the requirements for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer.
If you are unsure which area suits you, the combined Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree lets you explore both disciplines (Note: Accreditation is currently being sought for the combined pathway).
This course is ideal for a career in a range of areas including renewable energy, telecommunications, transport networks, construction and more.
On successful completion of study, we will issue one of the following awards dependent on your chosen pathway:
BEng (Hons) Electrical Engineering, BEng (Hons) Electronic Engineering, or BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering
In Year 1, your learning will closely mirror our other engineering degrees (Aeronautical, Mechatronics etc.) to ensure you have a solid grounding in engineering principles.
In Year 2 you’ll specialise in areas such as advanced electrical and electronic simulation and control. BEng (Hons) students can also take an optional industrial placement. This is a great chance to develop your employability skills and get you ready for potential graduate roles. Our close links with many high profile companies mean that we can help secure placements.
In Year 3 you will complete a substantial engineering project. You will also get the chance to present your work to industry and the public at the annual GradEX event.
You’ll also be able to take part in events arranged by our professional accrediting body, the IET, as well as benefiting from guest speakers from industry.
The course operates on a modular basis that provides flexibility and choice. Typically the majority of modules are 30 academic credits with a smaller number of 15 credit modules. Each credit taken equates to a total study time of around 10 hours. Total study time includes scheduled teaching, independent study and assessment activity. Full-time students take modules worth 60 credits per semester, with part-time students taking proportionately fewer credits per semester. All students take a total of 120 credits per level and 360 credits for the degree as a whole. Your overall grade for the course and your degree classification are based on the marks obtained for modules taken at levels 5 and 6. The full-time course has one start point in September.
Typical UCAS offer: 112 points
*A level applicants must have an A level pass in Mathematics, Physics or an Engineering-related subject for both BEng and MEng.
Packed with state-of-the-art software and hardware resources reflecting current trends in the development of engineering & technology subjects.

Saturday 18 August 2018
Open Days give you the best experience and insight to courses, people and facilities that interest you. Make your choice easier and come meet us.
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and laboratory practicals. Seminars enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups of around 16-18 students. In addition, you will have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor at least twice a year. You will be taught in first-class learning spaces throughout your course. Many of our courses are accredited or recognised by professional, statutory or regulatory bodies.
Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module normally includes practice or ‘formative’ assessments, for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. This includes a range of coursework assessments, such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, final year, independent project and written examinations. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.
In addition to the excellent support you will receive from your course teaching team, our central Academic Skills team provides group and one-to-one help to support your learning in a number of areas. These include study skills (including reading, note-taking and presentation skills); written English (including punctuation and grammatical accuracy); academic writing (including how to reference); research skills; critical thinking and understanding arguments; and revision, assessment and examination skills (including time management).
Our Student Enabling Centre supports students with additional needs such as sensory impairment, or learning difficulties such as dyslexia.
Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments.

Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or 'summative' assessment at the end of each module and the grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark. You will normally receive feedback on coursework assessments within 20 working days following the date of submission. Examination feedback may take a variety of formats. However, as a minimum, generic feedback will be made available to all students who take written examinations.
Your study time will consist of class contact hours, self-directed learning, assessment and placements where appropriate. Your actual contact hours will depend on the subject area, on the option modules you select and professional body requirements. A typical composition of study time for this course is:
When not attending lectures, seminars, laboratory or other timetabled sessions, you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve utilising a range of digital resources including our virtual learning environment; reading journals, articles and books; working on individual and group projects; undertaking research in the library; preparing coursework assignments and presentations, and preparing for examinations. Your independent learning will be supported by a range of excellent facilities. These include the library, open access computer facilities, informal learning zones, a range of laboratories and performance and studio spaces.
You will be taught by an expert teaching team whose expertise and knowledge are closely matched to the content of the modules on the course. The team includes senior academics and professional practitioners with industry experience. Postgraduate research students who have undertaken teaching training may also contribute to the teaching of seminars under the supervision of the module leader. Our teaching is research-informed and 72% of our full-time staff are Fellows of the Higher Education Academy.
Dr Chris Gould has a PhD in Thermoelectric Technology and is an expert in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
For the academic year 2018/19 the tuition fees for this course are:
For the academic year 2019/20 the tuition fees for this course are:
UK, EU and Channel Island students: This tuition fee is agreed subject to UK government policy and parliamentary regulation. If the UK government passes appropriate legislation, the fee for subsequent years of study may increase in each academic year. But this increase will not exceed the rate of inflation as measured by RPIX**. Any change in fees will apply to both new and continuing students. The University will notify students of any change as early as possible. Further information about fee changes would be posted on the University’s website once this becomes available.
**RPIX is a measure of inflation equivalent to all the items in the Retail Price Index (RPI) excluding mortgage interest payments.
