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.

Our MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and members of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UK-ESF) and IET Power Academy.
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. Specialist options in the last two years of the degree will take you to the leading edge of technology sought by industry. There is an opportunity to study abroad for a semester.
This programme can also be offered with a year in industry.
All undergraduate applications for Electronics and Computer Science should be made online through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
