Electronics and electronic systems have become the enabling technology of the material world. Develop the skills and knowledge to engineer the electronic signals that pervade the world around us.
Our MEng in Electronic Engineering with Artificial Intelligence includes the core learning of the BEng Electronic Engineering and MEng Electronic Engineering programmes to give you a thorough grounding in the field. You then have the opportunity to specialise and gain a greater understanding of the practical industrial applications of artificial intelligence. Key areas of study include:
• adaptive systems
• artificial intelligence
• advanced computer graphics
• computational intelligence
Our MEng Electronic Engineering with Artificial Intelligence will provide you with the skills to work in any area of the electronics industry. We have excellent relationships with employers, and have our own Careers Hub website. We also run an annual careers fair.
Students undertake four years of study. Each year there are compulsory modules. However, the degree has been designed to maximise student choice by allowing you to tailor the degree structure to suit your own interests.
GCSE Mathematics and English at grade C or above
For 2016: A*AA including Mathematics and Physics. Physics may be substituted by Further Mathematics, Computer Science, or Electronics. General Studies and Critical Thinking are not accepted as one of the three A levels.
If English is not your first language, you will be required to pass an approved English test. We normally ask for a score of IELTS 6.5 with at least 5.5 in each competency. For information on other accepted English language tests, please visit www.southampton.ac.uk/admissions_language.
We welcome applications from candidates offering qualifications other than A and AS levels (including BTEC Higher National Diploma, European Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, Irish Leaving Certificate and Scottish Highers). You will be expected to attain an equivalent standard (or higher) to an A level applicant.
We welcome applications from international students. For information on applying, visit the International Office website.
We welcome applications from mature students. If you will be over 21 at the start of your proposed degree programme, you are may be eligible for exemption from our normal entry requirements. However, you will be required to provide evidence of having completed recent study (eg Access, Return to Study, Open University foundation courses) and of your capacity to pursue the course.
In this year, you will select three Optional modules; at least one of which will be a Specialised module.

Assessment at Southampton means more than just essays and exams. We use a variety of modern learning and teaching methods mixing theory and practical demonstrations, laboratory work in our outstanding facilities, group coursework and a challenging personal project.
A student-centred approach means that you can pursue your own interests according to your future goals. We will support you in plotting a route through your degree programme which can be tailored for your interests and you can even personalise assessment paths and styles.
Southampton enjoys a range of modern services for learning and support, including world-class laboratories, a large number of internet-enabled workstations, a Careers Service, Job Shop and Students’ Information Centre.
Our methods of assessment enable you to demonstrate your strengths by showing what you have learnt. Your assessment will be closely linked to teaching and learning, developing throughout the programme. By the time you reach the end of an assessment, you’ll understand the connection with subjects that were taught.
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”.
