About us

Creating technical solutions for an evolving world

The products of electronic engineering are all around us in our daily lives, creating a demand for excellent engineers with a creative passion to put technology in to the service of humankind.

As Royal Holloway's youngest department, we have a brand new £20m state-of-the-art building to house our growing community and range of degrees in Electronic Engineering, alongside research groups that are addressing exciting future technology. Our staff bring their research expertise to their teaching, and our curriculum is informed by our excellent industrial links, ensuring our degree courses are designed to meet market needs and our graduates are highly employable.

Creativity first, Science follows

We place an emphasis on creativity at the heart of all great engineering inventions. Project-led activities are at the heart of our teaching to encourage entrepreneurship and group working in all stages, with placements and year in industry options available to develop real-world skills and experience.

We connect research and teaching in unique areas of communications, music and media technology, power systems, nanotechnology, systems computing and signal processing. Find out more about our research areas here

Shilling building social space


Our partners

Developing close links with industry is an important priority for us. Industrial links and year in industry experience can help prepare our students for a career in a multitude of areas within and beyond electronic engineering.

We have an Industrial Advisory Board, comprised of senior representatives from small businesses to large multinationals, including Fujitsu, Rolls Royce and Sony.

Our board members provide valuable and detailed advice on our curriculum, to ensure the courses we offer are directly addressing the specific needs of industry, stay up to date and relevant.
