Course outline

Industry now has different expectations of its employees. Engineers and technologists have to operate in a wider marketplace than they did 20 years ago. The abundance of computer software and hardware available to the engineer has altered their job function tremendously. Industry has also taken the role of the engineer and technologist and altered it to a multidisciplinary career spanning the physical sciences, mathematics, information technology and management.

Electrical and electronic technology has been developed to produce technologists who can operate in this fast changing environment. This course fosters the use of the computer as a tool and the development of transferable skills, which are of paramount importance in industry today. The awards recognise the importance of a strong understanding of background knowledge and the breadth and depth of technical knowledge appropriate to each route.
