Electrical Engineering (Hons)
The Electrical Engineering degree is built on a foundation of mathematics, computer science and physical science.
In your final year you specialise in areas such as communications, surveillance and radar and computer engineering and undertake a major research project supervised by a member of academic staff.
The Electrical Engineering degree develops high-level project management skills and engineering expertise which equips you with the skills you will practice as an electrical engineer.
You may choose to work with a telecommunications or electricity company, with large industrial groups in fields ranging from steelmaking to mobile phone manufacturing or with specialist firms making hi-tech biomedical or internet products and in service industries such as electricity and water, large private industrial groups, new technology firms, telecommunications and wireless electronics, internet services, biomedical instrumentation, manufacturing, and transport.
