Electrical engineering concerns anything that involves electrical power, from the novel superconducting systems to the principles of power generation and transmission, and the development of more efficient and sustainable energy sources. Electrical Engineering at Southampton emphasises the fundamentals of electrical theory while acknowledging the multidisciplinary nature of the field. Our programmes are broad and provide students with the skills to design and develop the technology of tomorrow.
Energy is one of the biggest global challenges. Energy generation and supply, coupled with environmental factors, place future energy needs and provision at the top of government agendas in every country. Our students work on systems which interface electronics and computers with aircraft, electric cars and renewable energy sources. It ensures that our graduates are highly valued by the industry and always in great demand.
