Studying with us

Studying with us

Studying an Electronic Engineering degree with us will give you the skills and knowledge to become part of the global team of engineers who are striving to find solutions and improve lives in our fast-moving technological world.

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.

We connect research and teaching in unique areas of communications, multimedia technology, power systems, nanotechnology, biomedicine and signal processing.

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.

  • BEng (three-year) and MEng (four-year) degree courses in Electronic Engineering or Computer Systems Engineering with an optional year in industry
  • A great balance between the theoretical and practical skills required for tomorrow’s electronics industries
  • A curriculum that fosters the creative side of engineering applications
  • Learning through hands-on project-based activities that prepare you for an industry with excellent career prospects
  • Cutting-edge research in unique areas of communications, multimedia technology, power systems, nanotechnology, biomedicine and signal processing.
  • A friendly and supportive department in a purpose-built building
  • Links with the South East regional hub of electronics businesses
  • An equality ethos: We offer an inclusive learning environment, and we aim to attract a greater than UK average proportion of women students
  • Partnership with the UK Electronics Skills Foundation - UKESF, connecting undergraduates with the electronics sector
  • A range of scholarships are available, at all stages of study.

Our new £20m state-of-the-art building provides an innovative environment and resources designed for today's Electronic Engineering.

Designed with large, modern lecture spaces for teaching, the latest technical facilities and equipment, social collaboration spaces, research and project fabrication, computing and electronics laboratories, it provides an ideal base for scientists and engineers to achieve their goals. 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 home 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.
