  • Course outline

This ground-breaking, fast-track, higher level qualification allows to you gain an MEng qualification in 4 years, rather than the traditional 5-year path, making it a more time and cost-effective choice. Designed to stretch our top students, it also includes a 12-month industrial placement, giving you the opportunity to study electronics more deeply than at BEng level while also gaining valuable industry experience.  

Because electronic engineering impacts on so many facets of modern-day life, it is perhaps no surprise to find that it is the most extensive and pervasive of all the engineering disciplines.

The design of this innovative course emphasises ‘doing’ as well as ‘knowing’, helping you to develop essential practical, intellectual, business and communication skills. This ‘real world’ approach, combined with the beneficial experience you will gain during your placement, will give you a clear competitive edge in the search for graduate employment.

In addition to giving you the knowledge base of science and mathematics needed to excel in the field, you will develop the techniques and skills required to analyse problems and engineer solutions. There is a strong emphasis on practical work in all years, allowing you to develop your engineering and management skills by working on engaging projects.

Years 1 & 2

The first two years of the MEng are taught alongside the BEng degree. Starting with the basic principles of analogue, digital and programmable electronic systems, you will rapidly develop the analytical skills to understand and begin designing electrical circuits and systems. You will also take courses in computing and mathematics. Project work encourages you to develop skills in team working, business and communications. 

Year 1 modules

  • Mechanics (AP1MEC)
  • Digital and Analogue Electronics (EE1DAE)
  • Electrical Circuit Theory (EE1ECT)
  • Engineering Projects and Entrepreneurship 1 (EE1EPE)
  • Physical Principles (EE1EPP)
  • Electrical Systems Engineering (EE1ESE)
  • Introduction to Computing Concepts (EE1ICC)
  • Theory of Electricity (EE1TEL)
  • Transition Mathematics for Engineers (SE11EM)
  • Mathematics for First Year Engineers (SE12EM)

In Year 2 you will study digital and programmable systems, communication systems, electronic systems and electrical systems in more depth. A themed design project and business course will enable you to develop your professional design and management skills.  

By taking additional modules after the end of the second year, you can incorporate the placement within a 4-year course.

Year 2 modules

  • Analogue Electronics (EE2AEL)
  • Communication Systems (EE2CSY)
  • Digital Programmable Systems (EE2DPS)
  • Electronics Group Design Project (EE2EDP)
  • Electronic Systems Analysis (EE2ESA)
  • Electrical Systems Engineering (EE2ESE)
  • Electrical Networks, Machines and Drives (EE2NMD)
  • Data Acquisition and Control (EE2DAC)
  • Sequential State Machines (EE2SSM)
Years 3 & 4

The final two years allow you to develop your skills in engineering and engineering management to a much greater depth and gain important experience working on an engineering placement.

The placement in Year 3 is academically assessed and also includes some distance learning business modules.

Year 3 modules

 Core modules
  • Sustainability in Science and Technology (BHM367)
  • Digital transmission and communication systems (EE3DDT)
  • Java Programming for Electronic Engineers (EE3JEE)
  • Leadership in Engineering (SE4051)
Optional Modules
  • International Placement Assessment (EE3IPA)
  • MEng International Study Year (EE3MIP)
  • MEng Industrial Placement Year (EE3MPY)
  • Individual Research (EE3RSC)

Final year
The final year is taught alongside our Masters programmes and you can chose options from the stream that most interests you.

In the final year you can take a broad range of Masters level courses or specialise in one particular area, such as communications, sensing, computing or electrical power.

You will also complete an extended individual project in an area that interests you.

Core Modules
