Group teaching

Our undegraduate degree programmes in Electronic Engineering can be studied as a three-year BEng in Electronic Engineering or four-year MEng in Electronic Engineering, and if you want to include a year in industry, we can help you to find a placement that's right for you. Whichever option you choose, you will learn the theoretical and practical knowledge for tomorrow’s electronics industries, acquiring valuable skills through hands-on, project-based activities to prepare you for an exciting career ahead.


All our Electronic Engineering degrees will go forward for accreditation by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in 2018. Formal accreditation is expected to be granted after the first intake of students has progressed to their second year of study.

Please visit our coursefinder for more detail on each degree. These pages will be updated as our courses develop.

Our Electronic Engineering degrees

BEng Electronic Engineering (three years)
