How will I study electrical and electronic engineering?
The Salford Experience Electrical Engineering
Bringing together science and technology, engineering relies on strong theoretical knowledge and creative flair which is why we use a range of stimulating learning approaches at Salford.
If you apply to study one of our electronic engineering degree courses, you will have an immersive practical experience in our brand-new SEE building with a range of external guest lecturers, placements, and amazing location at the heart of Greater Manchester to collaborate with industry partners.
LIFE IN THE NEW BUILD
With our SEE building ready for our students, it will consist of an impressive Morson Maker Space, equipped with 3D printing machines, laser and vinyl cutters, and clean working spaces to assemble electronics and build drones. It’s the perfect environment for gaining hand-on experience with digital fabrication and the future of manufacturing.
From specialist electronics and robotics laboratories to advanced computing suites, we have a range of impressive industry-focused software to facilitate your learning. This equipment will help you explore aspects from analogue electronics to digital signal processing, mobile networking to WAN.
BUILD TECHNICAL SKILLS
We know how important it is to leave with plenty of practical experience which is why we provide you with the engineering laboratories so that you gain an understanding of digital fabrication. Study at Salford where we will help you build practical and professional skills you need as an Electronic Engineer!
MAKE FRIENDS FOR LIFE
University life is more than just working hard and getting a degree – it’s also an opportunity to meet like-minded people and make great friends for life. On our engineering courses, we get you involved in industry events, competitions, and field trips where you can apply the skills you learn throughout your degree.
REAL LIFE PROJECTS
Electronics plays a key part of technological advances and is one of the most in demand professions which is constantly evolving. Taught by internationally recognised engineers and researchers, you’ll help transform the way people live, solve the world’s biggest problems, and improve our lives all over the world.
More importantly, we want you to experience group projects and collaborate with others to build your team working skills and confidence, so you’ll have the opportunity to participate in projects to enhance your professional and personal skills.
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 award-winning, highly skilled lecturers, who are active researchers in their specialist subjects to prepare you for the real world.
MODERN LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
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.
Take control of your own learning. Our Clifford Whitworth Library has physical and virtual resources to support your acoustics and audio studies. This 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 the perfect place for writing up tutorial notes and completing assignments - day or night!
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.
