Our BEng Electronic Engineering is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and we are a member of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation.
Students undertake three 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. In the first two years you will cover the fundamental theory, practice and skills essential to a chartered engineer. In your third year, you can choose areas that reflect your personal interests and work on an individual project.
All undergraduate applications for Electronics and Computer Science should be made online through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
