ECS launches new Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree

Published: 15 November 2012

Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) has launched a new degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE).

ECS has long experience in teaching excellent electrical engineering and electronic engineering programmes and is now launching this central unifying degree in EEE.

Students will get the opportunity to study many of the technologies that are key to the 21st Century requirements of energy efficient power transmission, smart grids, mobile phone electronics, communications, robotics, power electronics, and energy aware electronics and computing.

They will gain a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills that will allow them to work in a wide range of industry sectors.

The BEng and MEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering will start in 2013. Subject to approval, the first two years of the MEng progamme will also be available at the University of Southampton’s new Malaysia Campus.

Professor Neil White, Head of ECS, said: “In ECS our interests and research span the whole range of EEE from nano-scale devices up to grid level high voltage engineering. The breadth and scale of activity is unique in the UK. We have a long history and in-depth knowledge across the spectrum of electronic and electrical engineering and are delighted to be integrating them to offer students a combined subject for the very first time.

“Our students will be able to investigate the whole area of electronics and electrical engineering from the electronics and chip design behind smartphones to the energy requirements of power transmission.”
