Course content

In Year 1, your learning will closely mirror our other engineering degree disciplines (Mechanical, Automotive, Aeronautical, etc.) to ensure you have a solid foundation in engineering principles. (See Module section for more details).

In Year 2 you’ll have the option of choosing your specialisation pathway in areas such as Electrical Engineering or Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering. You will still have some common modules with other engineering disciplines such as Automation & Control Engineering, Engineering Mathematics and Leadership & Management. These modules will give you a great chance to develop your employability skills and get you ready for potential graduate roles. Upon completing your second year you have the option of taking a placement year with industry or proceed with your final year.

Placement Year

If you have enrolled on the course with the option of placement you can also look to undertake an industry placement and you’ll be supported by our own placements team and careers staff with your CV preparation, interviews and careers skills to make sure you present yourself and your talent in the best possible way. For example, our students have gained placements previously with Capula and BMW amongst others. Placement is usually a 12-month full-time role that relates to the subject a student is studying. During the year you have been accepted into the placement you will still be enrolled on your course and have connections with the university and your academic staff, this is treated as your year 3 and upon your return to the academic environment you will have the opportunity to complete your last year of the course as Year 4.

In Year 3 the major part of your course will be associated to completing a substantial engineering project as well as focusing on specialised modules related to your choice of pathway on the course. For example, on the Electrical Engineering pathway you will be obtain in depth knowledge and understanding in electrical power generation, transmission, distribution and supply industry as well as ability to conduct complex power system analysis and power electronic applications.

And if you have chosen the Electronic & Telecommunication pathway you will have the opportunity to develop your skills on Advanced communication systems and digital design circuits for embedded system applications.

You will also get the chance to present your work and project to industry and the public at our annual GradEX event.

Academic year

The course operates on a modular basis that provides flexibility and choice. Typically the modules are 30 or 15 academic credits. 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.

Careers

Our Electrical and Electronic graduates have gone on to a range of engineering roles, some as design engineers, hardware engineers, project engineers, project managers, system engineers, electrical engineers, electronics development engineers and intelligent transportation systems engineers. We’ve seen them employed at companies such as General Electric, Ericson, Phoenix Dynamics, Hitachi Energy, BAE Systems, and Capula amongst others. But there are also many of our graduates who go on to further studies such as our MSc programme in Electrical Engineering and Renewable Energy Systems or MSc programme in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering or PhDs.

Our graduates work in a variety of organisations in:

  • Electrical power generation, transmission and distribution
  • Renewable energy
  • Rail and road transport networks
  • Industrial manufacturing
  • Construction and building services
  • Specialist engineering and consultancy
  • Petrochemicals
  • Telecommunications
  • Defence related industries, including the Ministry of Defence

All students have access to Career Connect, our dedicated careers team.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching

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.

Assessment

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.

Learning support

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).

Additional support

Our Student Inclusion Services support students with additional needs such as sensory impairment, or learning difficulties such as dyslexia.

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.

Study option UK / Channel Islands
Part-time £4,620 per year of study

UK 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.

International students: Tuition fees will remain the same for each year of your course, as long as you complete it in the normal time-frame (i.e. no repeat years or breaks in study).
