Studying with us

Studying an Electronic Engineering degree with us will give you the skills and knowledge to contribute towards the systems of tomorrow, that support everyday life.

Electronic engineering is at the heart of many systems we use on a daily basis, including mobile communications, computers, transport systems, most domestic appliances, TV, radio, music studios and gaming devices.

Whatever course you choose, project-led activities are at the heart of our teaching. This helps encourage entrepreneurship and group working in all stages, with year in industry options available to develop real-world skills and experience.

Exciting opportunities

  • BEng (three-year) and MEng (four-year) degree programmes with an optional year in industry.
  • A great balance between the theoretical and practical skills required for tomorrow’s electronics industries.
  • Synergies with Computer Science, Physics, Environmental Science, Music and Media Arts in a curriculum that fosters the creative side of engineering applications.
  • Learn through hands-on project-based activities that prepare you for an industry with excellent career prospects.
  • Cutting-edge research in communications, nanotechnology, music and media technology, human factors and signal processing.
  • A friendly and supportive department in a purpose-built building, supported by the South East Regional Hub of electronics businesses.
  • An equality ethos: Royal Holloway has already earned a Bronze Athena SWAN award for its inclusive learning environment. Our new department aims to attract a greater than UK average proportion of women students for which it is in receipt of a HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England) funded development initiative.

A brand new building

The new £20m state-of-the-art building provides an innovative environment and resources for the next generation of scientists and engineers to achieve their goals.

Featuring large, modern lecture spaces for teaching, it has technical facilities and equipment, 'help yourself’ collaboration spaces, research and project fabrication, computing and electronics laboratories. The inclusion of a field laboratory on the roof with solar panels and a wind turbine gives hands-on practical experience with alternative energy generation.

Royal Holloway received a £5m grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) to develop the new building in order to encourage more female engineers to address the national shortage, and it has provided a fantastic base for our Electronic Engineering community.

This technology led facility is designed to inspire students and staff, to develop a creative approach to study, learning and research, and extend our vision for the future.
