The products and systems designed by electronic engineers influence almost every aspect of our lives and the ways we are able to work and communicate with one another.
This course provides you with the opportunity to acquire a solid theoretical grounding in computing and digital electronics and to apply this knowledge in a series of course projects, preparing you for the challenges facing professional engineers.
The MEng route extends your technical understanding whilst developing management expertise and knowledge of business processes.
You will make extensive use of facilities including laboratories for microcomputer development, digital communications, well-equipped electronic and computer-aided design resources, as well as access to digital video facilities. Throughout the course you also have the opportunity to take modern European languages.
Full-time: 4 years
Part-time: 8 years
With placement year 5 years
UCAS code HG6K
There is a strong emphasis on problem-based learning and project work, and you will be encouraged to prepare for your future career by developing your project portfolio.
As well as project work and modules in different aspects of electronics, programming and communications, years 1 and 2 provide a comprehensive grounding in mathematics, engineering concepts, electrical engineering, computer programming and engineering design, innovation and management.
You may opt for a year-long industrial placement before progressing to the final two years of the course.
The final two years include specialist options at BEng final year and masters level, major individual and team projects which are often supported by industry. Students benefit from the strong industrial links established by our staff.

Our practical hands-on and design-based approach, and close involvement with industry, are significant factors in the excellent employment record of our graduates. Graduates have gone on to jobs in process control, flight simulators, the railways and telecommunications, and have also established their own companies.
After satisfactory completion of our courses some graduates choose to go on to further study at MSc or PhD level.
The fees listed here are for full-time courses beginning in the academic year 2012-13. Further tuition fees are payable for each subsequent year of study.
The tuition fee you have to pay depends on a number of factors including the kind of course you take, and whether you study full- or part-time. If you are studying part-time you will normally be charged on a pro rata basis depending on the number of modules you take. Different rules apply to research degrees - please contact the Doctoral College for advice.
To help you plan for your time here we will be providing further information about what is included in your tuition fee, and any optional costs you may need to budget for, later in the autumn.
