H602 MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering (4 Years)

Our four-year MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree has been specifically designed to allow you to develop the skills, knowledge, and application required for a wide range of high quality professional engineering careers in business, research and development and industry.

Introducing your degree

Electrical and electronic engineers have a capital role in modern society. Be at the leading edge of research to develop analytical and innovative solutions to engineering problems.

Programme Overview

What is this?(More Information)This information is based on historical data and may have been aggregated. It is also subject to theUniversity's disclaimer notice.

Our distinctive MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering will build upon the BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering by giving you the opportunity to learn the management skills needed to become a leader in this industry and to explore additional specialist modules.

During your fourth year, you will participate in a group project that will aim to solve a real technical problem, possibly from a real customer from industry. This project will test and further develop your technical skills but also will develop your management skills as you will work in a team that needs to deliver a solution to a real engineering problem.

This programme has been specifically designed to allow you to develop the skills, knowledge, and application required for a wide range of professional engineering careers as high quality practitioners and leaders in business, engineering, research and development, and industry,

We have strong relationships with employers, and our graduates are particularly in demand for their understanding of organisations and their practical abilities in the workplace. We have our own Careers Hub website and run an annual careers fair.

Career Opportunities

Employability is embedded into modules from the first year onwards and right from the first lecture. We explain the degree skills which are being taught throughout the modules and offer a number of optional employability modules.

The technical skills you will obtain are in high demand, as are skills of understanding and analysing problems, together with communicating the results.

We have excellent relationships with employers and our own ECS Careers Hub offers a valuable resource. Adam Malpass, an MEng graduate of Electronic Engineering, was UK Electronics Skills Foundation Scholar of the Year 2011.“The ECS careers fairs offer many opportunities for employment and placements,” he said.“Being in ECS really does open doors for you”.

Engineering and Technology Careers Fair

Organised by the ECS Careers Hub, our annual Engineering and Technology Careers Fair attracts 85 companies and provides great opportunities for our students with leading employers.
