This programme is designed to produce graduates who can design and optimise complex hardware and communications systems. It will help you to develop deep understanding of engineering principles and quickly grasp engineering issues across a wide range of fields. It aims to produce design engineers specialising in defining system architecture, electronic system design and solving engineering problems. 

You’ll be trained to be creative and inventive, and able to solve difficult problems in areas such as hardware design computer networks, mobile communications and software systems. You’ll spend many hours in our labs, developing strong technical and design skills. Each of the eight semesters, you’ll take six modules, designed to provide a broad-based technical foundation in electronic engineering. In Year 3, you’ll undertake a major hardware or software project, involving strong interaction between you and your supervisor. In your final year, you’ll work on an open-ended design project that will require research, project management and a creative approach to the solution. You can select elective modules such as software design or communications systems, so as to study what interests you in greater depth.

Electronic Engineers are responsible for the design, development and testing of hardware and software components or systems. The modern Electronic Engineer will work in a diverse and very dynamic field spanning from the design and operation of mobile phones to robotics. Typical career opportunities will include:

  • Telecommunications Engineer
  • Hardware Design Engineer
  • Computer Network Engineer
  • Radio Frequency Design Engineer
  • Integrated Circuit Design Engineer
  • Engineering Systems Engineer
  • Instrumentation Engineer
  • Networks Operation Engineer Nanotechnology Design Engineer
The B.Eng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering has allowed me gain a senior position with an engineering company.
Thanks to the B.Eng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering I now work with a company designing integrated circuits for next-generation equipment.
When I received my B.Eng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering I was able to travel abroad and make a career in software development.
