Flexible pathways

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.

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.

The BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering [Top Up] course enables applicants who have completed an HND/ FDSc in a relevant Engineering discipline to progress onto the final year of the BEng qualification.

On this year, you will deepen your knowledge and skills in different areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering including electrical power generation, transmission, distribution and supply, power electronics and semiconductor devices. You will also study current developments and innovations within Engineering practice, allowing you to understand how the discipline is developing and changing.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to undertake an individual Engineering project allowing you to explore a topic or challenge within Engineering which is of individual interest to you.

Course content

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.

In your Top Up year you 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.

Academic year

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.

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.

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).
