How will I study electrical and electronic engineering?

Bringing together science and technology, engineering relies on strong theoretical knowledge and creative flair. 

When you study one of our electrical and electronic engineering degree courses, you will have an immersive learning experience.

Lab-based learning

As an engineering student, you’re going to spend lots of time in laboratories, so we’ve made sure that you will learn and study in an environment tailor-made for your course. With specialist electronics and robotics laboratories on campus and advanced computing suites, you will explore everything from analogue electronics to digital signal processing, and machine learning. 

You will also have access to our impressive Morson Maker Space and Engine Room. Equipped with 3D printing machines, laser and vinyl cutters, as well as clean working spaces for assembling electronics, and building drones and robots, it’s the perfect environment for gaining hand-on experience with digital fabrication and the future of manufacturing.

LECTURES AND TUTORIALS

Lectures and tutorials are a key part of building your theoretical knowledge base in your chosen field of engineering. You will experience teaching from our highly-skilled lecturers, who have real-world experience in their field and are active researchers in their specialist subjects. 

During your studies, you will experience a modern learning environment, with accessible lecture theatres and AV-equipped classrooms, computing suites and multimedia libraries, with access to industry journals, databases, and simulation software. 

SELF-DIRECTED STUDY

Inside Clifford Whitworth library

Successful engineering knowledge-building relies on lots of study. Whether you are collaborating with your coursemates on a group project, or working your way through the latest seminar reading list, you'll find you will spend lots of time in our library.

Our recently-refurbished Clifford Whitworth Library has physical and virtual resources that will support your aeronautical engineering studies. The modern learning space includes computing suites and multimedia libraries, with access to journals, databases, and software.

With an onsite cafe, breakout areas, comfy chairs and 24-hour access, it is also the perfect place for writing up seminar notes and finalising assignments - day or night!
