We invite you to join us and explore the creativity and innovation of engineering applications in a project-led curriculum taught by staff who are experts in their fields.

We offer a great balance between practical industry knowledge and innovative teaching, delivered in a well-equipped, state-of-the-art building.

Through our connections with our Industrial Advisory Board and location in the south east regional hub of electronics businesses we facilitate links with the leading UK-based electronic companies who can offer potential placements and graduate employment. Our Industrial Advisory Board includes Fujitsu, Rolls Royce and Sony among others, and keeps our degrees industry-relevant.

IET Accredited degrees

As a young department, we are delighted that our Electronic Engineering BEng and MEng degrees (with and without a year in industry) have received full accreditation by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) until 2026. IET accreditation involves a thorough assessment of our laboratory facilities, industrial influence, teaching curriculum and learning outcomes against internationally defined standards of quality and academic rigour. 

Accredited status means that graduates of Royal Holloway’s BEng and MEng (Hons) Electronic Engineering degrees fulfil the educational requirements for registering as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) following a few years of employment. It's reassuring to know that our degrees meet the highest standard and are acknowledged as being appropriate for the training of tomorrow’s chartered engineers; something we are very proud of and firmly believe in.

UKESF

Royal Holloway has joined 22 other leading academic institutions nationwide to partner with the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF). This means that our students can benefit from the UKESF scholarship scheme and internship programme, which connects the most capable Electronics undergraduates with leading companies in the sector.

In Electronic Engineering there is a real sense of camaraderie between staff and students. We have an inclusive and supportive community in which we positively encourage and support female applicants, and the department attracts a greater than average proportion of female students.

Our Personal Advisor system means that you will received personalised advice and pastoral support through your degree to help get the most out of your time at Royal Holloway.

Teaching activities include lectures, workshops and seminars with practical project work carried out in groups and individually in purpose built creative spaces and fabrication laboratories designed to inspire you and prepare you for an exciting career ahead.

Our project-led courses stimulate abilities and skills that are key to successful industrial team working. If you want to include a year in industry, we can help you to find a placement that's right for you. A year in industry offers you the opportunity to develop real world experience, extend your network of contacts and help you decide on your future career.

You will graduate with the theoretical, creative and practical skillset that electronic engineers need for a fulfilling and valuable career creating solutions in a technological world.

There are many well-paid opportunities for graduates in Electronic Engineering, a profession that struggles to recruit enough staff to meet demand.

"I've enjoyed the new facilities here, and the course is well balanced with practical work, supported by useful and interesting theory.

My favourite aspect is the group work. teamwork is integral to engineering, we collaborate to solve problems and create projects. This makes the challenges we are presented with conquerable and allows us to develop our individual strengths."
